The Academy League has reached week 10, with a full round of top youth football in our Under-18 division this Friday evening.

Unbeaten Ards (pictured) will look to climb to the top of the Under-18 Academy League with a win over Carrick Rangers Under-18's but they will need leaders Cliftonville Under-18's to drop points for go top.

There's a free week in the Under-16 division for catch-up games, with the only game seeing Ballinamallard United Under-16's and their Warrenpoint Town counterparts do battle at Clonallon Park.
