Frustration for Annagh manager
ANNAGH United will wrap up the IFA Championship 2 campaign tomorrow (Saturday) with the club’s manager, David Johnstone, in frustrated mood.
A look at the standings confirms Annagh remain a few points outside the cluster of teams entering the final weekend with so much at stake.
In contrast, United will be aiming to sign off with a positive performance but aware that any result can only push Annagh into a cosmetic position rather than one with a significant outcome.
“It is something which frustrates I have to say,” said Johnstone. “I look at the table and see so many teams just a few points in front of us but with much for which to play.
“We want to close out the season this weekend away to Sport and Leisure Swifts then start preparing for the next campaign.
“It was a good performance to defeat Ballymoney United last weekend thanks to an own goal.
“Francis McCann went on a great run and his cross was about to reach both Dean Smith and Jaime Gardiner inside the box when a sliding attempt to clear by Ballymoney forced the ball home.
“Ballymoney had the goalkeeper sent off with the score at 0-0 but we managed to create chances across the match.
“It was nice to register the clean sheet and points.”
Kick-off tomorrow (Saturday) away from home will be 3 o’clock.
