Have your say

Lisburn Distillery continued their pre-season campaign on Saturday afternoon on the wrong end of a 3-4 defeat by Junior side Comber Rec.

After a reasonably positive performance against Ballymena a couple of days previous the Whites would doubtless have gone into this game hoping to return to winning ways but it wasn’t to be and the fact that they shipped four goals against a junior side will give manager Tommy Kincaid some cause for concern.

However, it is fair to say that the defence was not his first choice what with players on holiday and unavailable for selection on the day.

The positives from the day were a superb strike from Marty Jones with Sean Southam notching up his first goals of 2015-16 as well.

Fixtures are as follows:

Thursday 23rd July (a ) v East Belfast (kick off tbc)

Saturday 25th July (h) v Coleraine (kick off 3:00 Pm)

Tuesday 28th July (h) v Dungannon Swifts (kick off 7:15 pm)

Thursday 30th July (a ) v First Bangor (kick off tbc)

Saturday August 1st (h) v Shankill United (kick off 3:00)

Admission prices for home games are Adults £5, concessions £3.

One in, one out
