Tobermore back in Championship action

FORTWILLIAM Park welcomes back Championship 1 football this Saturday when Tobermore United entertain Limavady United with a 3pm kick off.

Incredibly this will be Tobermore’s first home game since December 17th last year, and only their second competitive game in 2012, which is unacceptable at any level of football but despite the lack of games manager Oliver McAuley will be hoping that his side can reproduce the form they showed on their last outing 3 weeks ago against league leaders Ballinamallard when they narrowly lost 2-1 at Ferney Park.

Tobermore have already played Limavady twice this season recording a fine league win at the Showgrounds on the first day of the season and a few weeks later they knocked Limavady out of the Craig Memorial cup at Fortwilliam so it has the makings of a good game.

Limavady will be determined to stop Tobermore completing a hat trick of wins over their North West rivals.

Thankfully things are now back to normal with a full fixture list for March and April
