Tobermore conclude pre-season with win

Ballymoney United 1 - 2 Tobermore United

TOBERMORE wrapped up their pre season preparations with a hard fought 2-1 victory at Ballymoney United last Saturday afternoon.

Both managers gave everyone in their squads a run out in the rare August sunshine and Danny Gardner gave the visitors a fist half lead when he blasted home from the penalty spot. Ballymoney equalized midway through the second half but the lively Ryan Doherty put Tobermore back in front with 10 minutes to go.

It was another good workout for the reds with the only down side being an injury to Stuart Millar that could see him sidelined for a while.

It’s back to the bread and butter stuff for Tobermore this weekend when they entertain Warrenpoint Town at Fortwilliam Park in their first league game of the 2012/13 season and it should be a close encounter if the past 4 games between the two sides are anything to go by.
