The Northern Ireland Football League and the Irish FA have provided a update on fixtures due to be played over the next few weeks.

The Irish Cup round of 32 was due to take place on January 9, however due to the Department for Communities and Sport NI refusing an application to grant the competition elite status, this has now been postponed.

Our Boxing Day derby fixture against Portadown, which was called off due to the introduction of new restrictions by the NI Executive, will now take place on January 9.

Our game which was due to be played next Tuesday against Ballymena United is also off due to the new restrictions. It will now be played on Tuesday, January 12.

Our next scheduled game against Linfield at Mourneview Park on Saturday, January 2, will be played behind closed doors. Season ticket holders will once again receive a free stream for this fixture. Season ticket holders who have not already contacted the Club with an email address in order to obtain a free stream to please do so before 31st December.

In short our next fixtures are…

January 2 – Linfield (H, behind closed doors)

January 9 – Portadown (A)

January 12 – Ballymena Utd (H)
