1st XI v South Antrim

The Premier League has now split into Top 7 Bottom 7 but by losing 4-3 to Belfast Harlequins, last week Instonians went into the break in third place so a win at South Antrim on Saturday was most important.

The players responded well and came away from Lisburn with a 5-0 victory and three very valuable points.  Whilst we still remain in 3rd place matters are very much in our own hands as we have still to play the teams in places 1 and 2 and we will be looking for maximum points from both those matches. 

Chris Barnes’s return to Instonians has been so important to our goal scoring as another  two from Chris on Saturday brought his total to 15 in 5 matches.  We believe that Chris’s influence over the coming weeks will be so important to us as we continue our efforts to land the Premier League title.  Other scorers on Saturday were Gavin Leckey 2 and Dane Ward.

This week it is Portadown at Shawsbridge when again we will be looking for maximum points.
