Shea Campbell with the match ball after his hat-trick heroics

The return of Shea Campbell to the City attack was a welcome sight for boss Marty Rice who also had midfield dynamo Philip Donnelly back from injury for Tuesday’s Mid-Ulster Cup quarter-final with Lurgan Celtic.

An early brace from Campbell put City on their way, and though the visitors pulled a goal back after the break the veteran striker confirmed that the Eagles would be in the semi-final when he completed his hat-trick midway through the half.

City: Connolly, Montgomery, Lennon, Toal, Carvill, Hoey, Bell, McSorley (Rice), S McGerrigan (McCarten), Donnelly, Campbell (Ferreita). Subs not used: Graham, Quigley

City struggles continue at Welders

H&W Welders 3
Armagh City 0

City welcomed back Shea McGerrigan after several weeks out injured and also Shea Campbell who had missed the last couple of matches but were without Ultan Lennon and Paul Carvill for Saturday’s trip to Tillysburn.

The first half chance of the match fell to the visitors when a Shea McGerrigan free kick just failed to find Dara Noonan at the back post. With McGerrigan and Andrew Hoey combining well City looked the most threatening in the opening minutes.

City ready to turn the corner
By Sam Gamble

Experienced Armagh City goalkeeper John Connolly has said that the Cathedral City outfit need to keep their heads up and stay positive, as they look to get themselves out of their recent poor run of form.

City’s latest performance saw them suffer a 4-1 at home to Institute on Saturday afternoon in the league and Connolly said it has been a difficult period for the club.

“We need to keep our heads up and be positive and I know that once we get a few players back from injury and suspension that we will be back up there and getting some positive results again.

Marty Rice’s charges suffered an agonising midweek defeat against Carrick Rangers last Wednesday evening in the NIFL League Cup and despite having large spells of possession, City had little to show for their efforts.

City thumped in depressing derby

Annagh United 3
Armagh City 0

A depleted Armagh City side travelled to Portadown on Saturday, hoping to get back to winning ways against the Championship’s bottom side, Annagh United.

Missing several regulars, including Philip Donnelly, Ciaran Murray, Eoin Toal and Shea McGerrigan, Marty Rice drafted Paul Carvill and Johnny McSorley into the starting lineup, while Shea Campbell led the line against his former team.

In a nervy opening 10 minutes, captain John Connolly had to be alert from free-kicks by Christian Stewart and Johnny McClurg, but neither really threatened the City keeper.

The visitors had their first attempt on goal when Jordan Bell found some space 25 yards from goal, but his effort went harmlessly wide.

Annagh took the lead on 18 minutes when Jake Richardson broke down the right and fired a dangerous low cross into the City box which Dara Noonan could only turn into the top corner past the helpless Connolly.
