First silverware of the new season up for grabs


Saturday evening in Milebush it will be a kind of home away from home for Newport Town when they take on Ballyheane B in the final of the McHale Agri Stores Cup Final. While to most the boys from Ballyheane would be much closer neighbours to Milebush Park the home of the Mayo League. But since they reformed and came back into the league this season, Newport Town have been using Omnigrass in Milebush for their home games in League Three of the Mayo League and they are currently sitting in third place in the table one point and one place behind Sunday’s cup final opponents and both sides are scheduled to meet again next weekend in the league back on the Omnigrass. This Saturday’s game will however be on the main pitch in Milebush, and Newport Town will be hoping that they fare a little bit better at least than last weekend when Ballyheane’s A team put ten past them in he Connacht Gold cup.

Celtic look to keep up lead

Castlebar Celtic will be hoping that they can at least keep the six point gap open between themselves and second placed Ballina Town this weekend, when the Super League kicks back into action. Declan Kilkelly’s side will be at home to Swinford on Saturday evening and will be hot favourites to take the three points against a side who have only won once this season. Second placed Ballina Town will be making the long trip to the Green to take on Ballinrobe Town. Ballina will be the favourites to win the game, but Ballinrobe Town will be hoping that their surprise win away to Manulla a fortnight ago can be the springboard to a drive out of the relegation zone. Manulla, for their part, have a tough trip away to third placed Claremorris lined up for Saturday night, while Westport United will be making the long trek to Erris to take on Iorras Aontaithe.
