Pre-season training has continued over the last number of weeks with good attendances although as expected a number have come and gone through holidays.
United have also been engaged in number of friendly matches with victories against Ballynagross and Crewe and a defeat to Ford.
All of these matches have provided the team with stiff opposition and this coming week will be no different with games against Ballymacash (Tuesday 23rd July), Rathfriland (Saturday 27th July) and Ards F.C (Tuesday 30th July).
It is good to see a few new faces as well and anyone who has not got fixed up with a club will be made more than welcome.
There will be a friendly on Wednesday 24th July at Millbridge against Rossglass for Swifts and Albion players.
Everyone at the club is looking forward to the visit of Ards F.C who will this year compete in the Irish League Premier Division. There have always been a lot of Ards supporters around Ballynahinch and it is hoped that a good number will take the opportunity of coming along to support local football.
