Men’s Premier League Preview

Cookstown will be looking to regain the top spot as they take on bottom-placed Bangor in the Men’s Premier League.

The two sides go into the game in contrasting forms with the hosts having lost all three games this season whereas their opponents have a one hundred per cent record so far.

The youthful Bangor side will have it all to do if they are to get a result with the likes of Jack Haycock, Ryan Millar and Gregg Allen all in fine form for Cookstown.

Meanwhile, they will also have to find a way to break down the best defence in the league with their Mid-Ulster opponents having only conceded once in their opening three games.

Table toppers Kilkeel could extend their winning run to four games as they take on newly promoted Raphoe.

The County Down side go into the game on the back of an 8-0 win over NICS last week with Luke Russell and David Rae also leading the scoring charts with four goals each this season.

Opponents Raphoe are still looking for their first win of the season but could move up to fourth with a good result.

Elsewhere Queen’s University will be hoping to bounce back from a 5-2 defeat last week as they host South Antrim.

The clash is the first meeting this season between the top two sides from last campaign when they were separated by goal difference.

Both sides have had mixed starts this time round with the reigning champions on just three points from their opening games, whilst their Lisburn opponents have four.

This fixture provides an opportunity for both teams to kick-start their season and to propel themselves back into the title hunt.

The other game of the day sees Belfast Harlequins host North Down at Deramore.
