Ballyheane v Westport United

Saturday April 25 at 6.30pm

Venue: Pat Quigley Park

It was back to business as usual for Westport United with a 6-0 win over Iorras Aontaithe last Sunday. John Brennan’s side bounced back well from their opening day defeat with a devastating display. Tomorrow night, they will face a Ballyheane side who will be a little disappointed to have lost out to Ballina Town last weekend, where two goals in a five minute spell before the break made the difference. With one point on the board from their opening day draw with S&F, picking up at least a point on Saturday will be a good return.

Castlebar Celtic v Ballina Town

Saturday April 25 at 6.30pm

Venue: Celtic Park

The early pace-setters will hit the road for the first time this season on Saturday evening. Goals from Jamie Cawley and Dylan McKee were the difference last weekend for them against Ballyheane. Having already toppled Westport United another win here will be another serious statement of intent for the north Mayo men.

Celtic had fun in the sun last Sunday when they put seven past S&F, but the win as also came with some bad news as manager Stevie Gavin departed the scene. Celtic will be hoping that the change in the dug out does not affect them too much.

Charlestown Athletic v Straide and Foxford United

Sunday April 26 at 2.30pm

Venue: Bellaghy Park

Charlestown Athletic kicked off their season last weekend after appointing a manager in the week before the game and things did not go exactly to plan. Super League new boys Ballyglass put five past them, but it was when Charlestown went down to 10 men the floodgates opened up. They will be hoping for better against a side that themselves conceded seven last weekend. The visitors on Sunday will be hoping to put last weekend’s 7-2 hammering behind them when they make the short trip to Charlestown. Last week S&F’s John O’Hara told us these were the must win games for his side, so three points will be a priority

Conn Rangers v Ballyglass

Sunday April 26 at 2.30pm

Venue: Mount Falcon

Can the Ballyglass fairytale start to the season continue on Sunday? Two wins from two and seven goals scored is some return from a side just promoted to the top division. But on Sunday, they will face an old familiar foe in the shape of the side that came up with them last season. Conn Rangers have yet to pick up a point after losing to Iorras Aontaithe in the opening round and then to Manulla last weekend. The Mount Falcon side have only lost by a single goal in each of those games and took the lead last Sunday. This promises to be a enthralling encounter.
