16 teams attended with Glenravel the only Antrim team in attendance. We drew our first 2 matches against Dungiven - A (who were narrowly defeated in the cup semi final) and Swatragh - A before going down to Magherafelt in the last round robin game.
After tea we met Buncrana in the shield to lose narrowly 2-2 to our 1-3. Given we has to play into wind the whole game, (no half times), had we had the wind the result could have been different.
A spirited display from the squad throughout and most pleasing was our use of drills practised at training; breaking ball, back up and set up on their kick outs. We saw good distribution from mid to our forwards and had plenty of possession in front of their goals.
First run out this year so lots of positive to reflect on.
Thanks to all who got up early to fulfil the invitation.
