Coagh United and Institute will have a second go at fulfilling their league fixture this weekend 11th January at 2pm.

Last weekend the Hagan Park surface fell foul of the weather. Coagh will hope to have new signing Craig Moore in their line up.

Highly-rated Moore came through the Coleraine FC Youth set-up before becoming a regular scorer in the Reserves and helping a second-string Coleraine lift the Craig Memorial Cup at Tobermore two weeks ago.

Craig, who earned his promotion to the first team squad with a number of eye-catching performances towards the end of the 2012/13 season, moves to Coagh on-loan until the end of the season.

Craig is the first of a number of players Coagh have been tracking and the village club will hope to have a few more new faces in their line up before the weekend.

Coagh have also a number of players moving on, Jamie Tomelty (Dungannon), Scott McCordick (Annagh), Barry Anderson and Colin Donaldson (Tobermore).

Coagh United wish their up and coming starlet Brendon Chambers a speedy recovery after he sustained facial fractures in a training accident last week.

The young keeper who made his first team debut in December is in a positive mood and is looking forward to get back into training. Everyone at Coagh wish him well.

COAGH RESERVES 2 RICHILL 2

Coagh Reserves played Mid Ulster Intermediate B side in a friendly on Saturday past. This game was preparation for the Reserve side’s game away to Harryville Homers’ this sat in the Irish Junior Cup.

Richill’s Davy Ross gave the visitors a two goal advantage at the break but Coagh’s Hogshaw and Smyth levelled the scores with two well taken goals in the second half.

An outstanding save by Graham McKenzie in the final minute from a Davy Ross 25 yard volley kept the scores even in this very entertaining match.
