Waringstown’s Ulster Bank NCU Premier League title bid reaches a crucial stage on Saturday against leaders North Down at Comber.

Win and Lee Nelson’s team will be in a good position to launch a charge fo rth etitle.

But if they lose then the Comber side will be in pole position to lift the trophy after an unexpected late-season charge.

It’s a match the villagers surely can’t afford to lose as the title race reaches a crucial stage.

Waringstown are also in action on Sunday, when they travel to take on Lisburn at Wallace Park.

Again nothing less than a victory will suffice.

Waringstown have two more league matches after this weekend, both against title rivals CIYMS and Instonians.

The match ball sponsor for the game against North Down is Geoffrey Heyburn.
