Hoey hat-trick as City blast six past Fivemiletown

Armagh City 6 Fivemiletown Utd 0
Armagh City blasted their way into the fifth round of the Intermediate Cup on Saturday as they cast aside the challenge of visitors Fivemiletown United.

The Holm Park outfit opened their account in the second minute when a cross from the right was bundled into the opposition net by Northern Ireland youth international Andrew Hoey.

And they doubled their tally on 21 minutes when another January signing, ex-Warrenpoint Town favourite Marty Havern, turned on the edge of the box and fired into the roof of the net past outstretched United ‘keeper Chris Dynes.

And, just a minute later, Hoey notched his second score after he rounded Dynes and shot home following an inch-perfect through ball from Phillip Donnelly.

City were dominating all aspects of the match and they were unlucky not to extend their advantage before the break but the visiting stopper saved his team when denying Donnelly, Stephen Murray and Havern in quick succession.

Half-time: Armagh City 3 Fivemiletown Utd 0.

Armagh again controlled matters in the second-half and they made sure of taking the spoils when Ultan Lennon got the final headed touch to an inswinging Dale Montgomery corner on 64 minutes.

Hoey rounded off a superb hat-trick on 75 minutes from the penalty spot and sub Gary Boyle squeezed home a sixth at the near post to make sure last season’s beaten cup finalists are back in the hat for the fifth round.

Armagh set sights on cup encounter

Armagh City take on top junior opposition in the fourth round of the Intermediate Cup this Saturday.
For they entertain Fivemiletown United at Holm Park in a match which kicks-off at the revised time of 3pm.
The visitors are currently lying in joint third place in the Mid-Ulster Intermediate League ‘A’ but have matches in hand on those above them.
With nothing to lose and everything to gain, Fivemiletown will arrive in Armagh full of confidence, backed by a large travelling support.
Certainly, City will not be taking them lightly as, in the past, the Holm Park side have fallen to so-called lesser opposition.
But, as beaten Intermediate Cup finalists last season, Armagh will be going flat out to make the latter stages of the torrnament once again.
After their 3-1 Championship One win over Lisburn Distillery on Saturday last, City will be confident mood that they can progress.
The first-team squad is in fine fettle at present, especially at Holm Park, and it would be a major shock if they were to lose the match.
Armagh manager Marty Rice may make some changes to his starting line-up this weekend, with one or two players from the bench making the starting line-up, but it is unlikely that he takes a risk on anyone outside the Firsts’ panel.
The Armagh City v Fivemiletown United Intermediate Cup fourth round match kicks-off at Holm Park, Armagh, this Saturday, January 24, at 3pm.
All welcome.

Inspired City win again

Armagh City 3 Lisburn Distillery 1
Armagh City completed a Belfast Telegraph Championship One double over Lisburn Distillery at Holm Park on Saturday.

Both sides fought for early dominance and scoring chances were at a premium as two strong defences dominated.

It was going to take something special to break the deadlock and this came after 20 minutes when City’s Northern Ireland youth international Andrew Hoey let fly from 25 yards and his shot flew past Ryan Bride into the top corner of the net.

Armagh now began to take control and almost increased their lead on the half-hour when a low shot from Marty Havern was brilliantly turned around an upright by the alert Bride.

Lisburn’s best effortof the half came five minutes before the break when a long-range effort from Bradley Morton brought out the best in City stopper Sean Morgan.

Half-time: Armgh Cityy 1 Lisburn Distillery 0.

The home team had another superb chance on 52 minutes when a low goalbound header from Havern was somehow scooped off the goal-line by inrushing collegue Hoey at the back-post.
And this miss was to prove costly as the visitors immediately launched a counter-attack which led to midfielder Kevin O’Connor scoring with a low shot from 10-yards out.

This reverse only served to inspire City who almost took the lead again moments later but another classy save by Bride denied leading scorer Stephen Murray.

Armagh kept up the pressure and captain Liam Cullen and Murray had further efforts well saved by the impressive Bride.

But there was nothing the Lisbirn stopper could do to deny the home side on 81 minutes when Havern drove high into the net from 10-yards after an inch-perfect cross from the right.

And, on the stroke of full-time, City secured the points when Andy Moore was left free in the box to head home an Ultan Lennon free-kick.
