Ballynahinch United II 3-2 Albion Star

The 2nds overcame Albion Star in their first league match of the new season.

Ballynahinch United III 1-6 Annalong Rangers

The 3rds endured a torrid time in their first match against one of the stronger teams in the division. A makeshift 3rd team, missing a number of players, initially traded attacks with Annalong before falling behind on the half hour mark with a second goal following soon after. The away side gained momentum and scored two further goals in the lead up to half time.

The second half was a more balanced affair and, after conceding a fifth soon into the half, the 3rds got a foothold in the game and pressed the visitors, reducing the deficit with a well taken goal from Stephen King. Despite further pressure from the home side it was Annalong who would score again.
