Saturday 19 March
United travelled to Monkstown to face 18th Newtownabby at Cloyne Crescent.
Unfortunately they fell behind before Taylor Graham scored to make it 3 – 1 to give United hope of an unlikely comeback.
A fourth for 18th before the end prevented that.

B Swifts 5 – 2 Kilmore Rec II
Meanwhile The Swifts entertained Kilmore Rec at The Millbridge with a depleted squad including missing Player/Manager Gareth Bingham.
The side fell behind early on but rallied back. A corner from Luke Curry found its way into the net with the assistance of the blustering winds.
Cameron McKissick, suffering from injury from before kick-off, put the home team ahead after stabbing home past the ‘keeper before the end of the half.
After the break, Kilmore equalised to make it 2 – 2.
But soon after, Luke Curry’s driven cross-cum-shot was parried by the goalkeeper with Matthew Lindsay on hand to coolly slot home like an ex-Premier League striker.
The Swift’s extended their lead when Ronnie Johnston’s 30 yard free-kick flew past the keeper.
Another Luke Curry driven cross found his man, with Matthew Lindsay again calmly guiding the ball into the net to complete an excellent brace to send the crowd wild.
