Football: Coagh United notes

Coagh's game on Saturday with Lurgan Celtic was called off
Coagh's game on Saturday with Lurgan Celtic was called off

Coagh United have made use of this transder window to dip into the transfer market and sign Yardley player Daniel Tysoe.

Previously playing in the North Bucks League for Yardley Gobion FC in Northamptonshire, the centre half will come straight into the squad for the Intermediate Cup match away to Lurgan Celtic on Saturday along with Coleraine duo, Craig Moore and Joel Bradley.

Coagh also added Mark Drennan and Mark Stewart from Tobermore United while Jamie Kilpatrick comes in from Cookstown Youth.

The club have also added Kyle Hassan to their coaching staff. Kyle, who had eleven very successful seasons between the sticks at Coagh, will use his wealth of experience in looking after the goalkeepers at the club.

Last Saturday saw both teams stripped out and ready to go after Lurgan Celtic’s team had manually spiked the pitch, but the heavy rain that came just before kick-off gave the referee little option but to call the match off after the waterlogged pitch became unplayable.

Coagh will again travel without the suspended Scott McGeown and new signing Stuart Glasgow who is cup tied. Kick off for Saturday’s match is 1.30pm.

Coagh Reserves will be hoping to get back on the road this week with an away fixture to Rathfriland. Last week the weather caused the home fixture against Annagh United to be postponed.

Coagh United’s fixtures for February are: Saturday 1st February, away, Lurgan Celtic, 1.30pm; Saturday 8th February, away, Dundela 3pm; Saturday 15th TBC; Saturday 22nd, home, Knockbreda 3pm.
