CARRYDUFF v BALLELA
BALLYCRAN B v PORTAFERRY B

Tuesday 17th Apr 2018
LIATROIM v NEWRY

Great to see Liatroim hurling in Down and I reckon they will have a massive say in the outcome of the league! They are my tip to win this division this year. Having said that, don't rule out the Ports who will have a mix of young talent and seasoned campaigners in their panel. It will be interesting to see how Ballela fare having beat all before them last season in Div II. They will find this a lot tougher, but great to see them in Div 1 all the same. Carryduff will relish playing in Div 1 but it remains to be seen if they can push on from an excellent Antrim campaign last year as well as finishing runners up in Div II


ACHL DIV II
BALLYCRAN, BALLYGALGET, BREDAGH, BALLYVARLEY, CASTLEWELLAN, KILCLIEF , WARRENPOINT

BALLYGALGET v BREDAGH
BALLYVARLEY v KILCLIEF
CASTLEWELLAN v WARRENPOINT

Bredagh had an awful campaign in both Antrim and Down last year and a lot depends on the numbers they can pull together on a Monday night as to how their campaign will go. Hard to know what you will get from the Glagets ...expect a young team to be fielding for the Ards men this year. Ballyvarley and Castlewellan had awful seasons last year and will find a few in this league just too god for them. Kilclief, if they can get a decent pre-season and a good core of 18 players, could spring a few surprises this year.

2 competitive leagues there.

Ballycran should win Div 1 and I'd expect Kilclief to win Div 2.

Anyone know how Ballygalget ended up in Div2? Was supposed to be one up one down so Kilclief and Ballela should have swopped and noone else?

Fixtures are out.
Galgets at home to ports in first game and crans away to St. John's! Two good fixtures to start the year!

Just wondering... will these senior games be affected by the down v Antrim u21 game or am I getting the date mixed up?

Portaferry 0-15 to Shamrocks 1-12.... good result for us given we were missing Artie, Ruairi and 4/5 others......both teams tried their best to play hurling but game was ruined by some crazy reffing decisions that baffled both sides.......still on balance a draw was probably a fair result and decent start to the league

Was it same ref that ignored rules in Portaferry last week in minor match against Galgets?

Great wins for Liatroim and Ballycran on Monday night and a decent looking game between Newry and Ports by all accounts in Div I.
Credit to Warrenpoint for keeping at it and getting off to a winning start in Div II in what looks to have been a tight enough game. I very much doubt that the Galgets should be playing in Div II by the looks of that score and surely would getter a better standard of hurling in Div I

Galgets will learn nothing in Div2, not sure of their logic, but by all accounts they won't be putting big scores up against anyone in this league anyway.
