Hill Street concluded their season with a routine home win against Armagh Rovers.

In what was a one way first half street dominated with James Wright causing all sorts of problems. Ian Penny and Steve McClelland had a number of shots in the first half but were frustrated by the keeper.

James Wright got things going with a fine finish. Street could of had more goals but with poor finishing and good goalkeeping kept hill street at bay. Aaron Kidd in goals remained concentrated to safe from close range after a rare Rovers attack.

James Wright got another goal another goal to add to his tally and Ian Penny improved his impressive goal tally for the season. Rovers got a consolution goal to wrap the game and the season up.

Street endured a disappointing season losing out on an historic 3 league titles in a row by a 2 points. Street will be out to gain tback the league next season. Hill street would like to thank Mercer PME for his matchday sponsorship.


Lurgan BBOB II played at home on Saturday against Ballyoran II in their season’s last and important game, where they finished with a valuable 2-2 draw to keep them four points ahead of Ambassadors II who have two games left, in their bid to avoid relegation from Reserve Division 2.

On the balance of play, this was a game that BBOB II should have won against leading team, Ballyoran II. BBOB twice led at 1-0 and then 2-1 by half time, with veteran striker Mark Emerson scoring a brace of goals. However, Emerson also missed a first half penalty kick, which would have given him a hat-trick.

Fellow BBOB veteran Derek Wilson missed a spot kick too later in the second half, while Ballyoran managed a second half goal to somehow salvage a 2-2 draw.

Laurne BBOB II: Z Tolmie, J Warren, A Dowey, P Stretton, D Wilson, J White, M Russell, I Wilson, A Bradley, M Emerson, W Irvine. subs: A Archer, J McCreery, S Richardson.

Lurgan BBOB would thank Wee Barneys Café, Portadown, for the match day sponsorship.
