Lisburn Distillery boss Tommy Kincaid says Saturday’s win against Dundela was a ‘massive win’ for the Whites.

Distillery, who had Nick O’Neill in charge - with Kincaid at Old Trafford - secured the three points in their league encounter with Dundela, the first of their back to back meetings.

“The result was a big big result for us; a massive result. No matter their league position, they are a good side. Everybody there did a good job.

“I certainly wasn’t going to put Nick under any pressure, the boys knew I was picking the team. The coaches did a great job and the boys gave them the respect they deserved.

“In the cup match we know it won’t be the same again, as it’s a one-off match, but I shouldn’t have to say too much. The boys know what they are going into.

“The target for us is always, one, to stay up, two, try to finish in the top six. If we can do that and to reach the quarter final of of the Intermediate Cup and perhaps progress further, the season’s not too bad, compared to where the season started.”

• The Whites will hold a Gala Ball on May 9 in the Beechlawn Hotel to celebrate the 1985 Co. Antrim Shield winning side.
