Warrenpoint Town Match Preview
Uploaded Friday, 8th Sep, 2017 at 11:54

BALLYMENA United travel to Milltown Playing Fields to face Warrenpoint Town on Saturday afternoon.
The last time the sides met in the league was in April 2016, Warrenpoint running out 4-1 winners thanks to a Stephen Murray hat-trick and a goal from Johnny McMurray, who now plays for United. Less than two weeks later the Town were relegated to the Championship, but won it by a country mile and are now back in the top flight.
