Loughgall offered the next generation an opportunity to impress on Tuesday night in the league trip to Carrick Rangers.

The Villagers failed to secure any reward in the 2-0 defeat but coach Steven Hawe is confident of the long-term benefits.

“We had quite a few senior players unavailable but those selected did not let anyone down,” said Hawe. “It is encouraging for the future and now we will focus on three points this weekend at home to Dundela.

“It was also great to see Aaron Willis make his return from long-term injury.

“Aaron Patteron and Wesley Boyle scored goals for us on Saturday to get a great 2-1 win against Dergview.

“We showed a lot of character to score two late goals.”

Kick-off on Saturday will be 3 o’clock.
