The home side started the more brightly and but for a finger tip save from Paul Cairnduff they might have taken an early lead from an excellent Shea Campbell strike. A Johnny McSorley shot was off target and a Jasir Camara effort was comfortably saved by Cairnduff.

As the half wore on the visitors started to come more into the game. It was the home side however that took the lead five minutes from the interval following good build up play an Eamon Kelly cross from the left was met inside the box by Conor Mullen who found the net.

Armagh City followed up last week’s victory against Lurgan Celtic with another win on their travels, this time at Inver Park in Larne on Saturday. Despite missing a number of first team regulars through injury and unavailability, Marty Rice’s side produced a determined performance that was rewarded by Jasir Camara’s second-half winner.

On a cool afternoon, both sides struggled in the opening minutes to deal with the poor pitch conditions that made any kind of passing game very difficult.

It was the home side who had the better of the chances in the opening half, with City keeper John Connolly forced into an early stop from Conall McGrandles before denying James McCabe with a smart save on 19 minutes.

First Holm loss of 2017 for City

Armagh City 0
H&W Welders 3

City’s long list of unavailable players was added to when young right back Conor Kerr suffered a hairline fracture of a kneecap in the recent match at Annagh.

They therefore went into Saturday’s match with the Welders without Kerr and other injured players Luke Grimley and Ultan Lennon as well as the suspended Dale Montgomery.

Despite the absentees the home side dominated possession in the first half.

They caused no real threat to the Welder’s goal the nearest they came was when Eamon Kelly failed to make proper contact with a Johnny McSorley cross and minutes later when Conor Mullen headed a Paul Carvill cross narrowly wide.
