City chasing league title!

After wrapping up promotion on Saturday last – Armagh City’s sights are now firmly set on claiming the Belfast Telegraph Championship Two title.

But standing in the way of collecting the winner’s trophy is local derby rivals Banbridge Town!

The teams clash tonight at  7.45pm at Holm Park, Armagh.

City defeated the County Down side a few weeks back at Crystal Park and will want a repeat performance to round off their season in style.

The Holm Park outfit are back to full strength on the playing front, with midfielder Philip Donnelly returning after serving a two-match ban.

Everyone is fit and healthy and, with 12 successive league wins under their belts on their new 3G pitch, Armagh should be confident of gaining a positive result.

Should the local lads be beaten tonight, however, there is no reason to panic.

For this Saturday, (May 3, kick-off 3pm at Holm Park, Armagh), City will play their penultimate championship match of the season against Portstewart.

And they have a real incentive to turn over the north coast visitors.

For Portstewart inflicted a rare defeat on City at the start of the season and, should the result be reversed, then the Holm Park outfit can celebrate beating every other team in their division!

However, it is not yet known what sort of team City manager Marty Rice will turn out for this game.

For, just two days later, on Monday, May 5, (kick-off 5.15pm at Mill Meadow, Castledawson), Armagh face a strong Bangor side in the Coca-Cola Intermediate Cup final.

But, with a strong squad now at his disposal, it is unlikely that the manager will bring in too many new faces for the league encounter against Portstewart.

Armagh’s last game of the season will be away to Glebe Rangers in Ballymoney.
