After disciplinary action at the start of last season seen the Mid-Ulster side start with a huge handicap, it left them with a mountain to climb, so it was almost inevitable that they'd be relegated at the end of last season. They'll not want to spend too long in the BlueFin Championship and they've shown great determination so far in their pre-season friendlies - we should not expect anything less than a tough encounter.
