Premier Intermediate


10 Feb 2024

The four sides leading the charge at the top of the Playr-Fit Premier Intermediate League all picked up a further three points apiece whilst it was also a good day for Portstewart and bottom of the table PSNI.

Leaders Limavady United kicked the weekend off on Friday night after goals from Lewis Tosh and Alex Pomeroy guided them to a 2-0 defeat of Warrenpoint Town at The Showgrounds.

Queen’s University remain three points adrift in second place after they hit three goals without reply past Tobermore United at Fortwilliam Park.

Josh Corry headed the Students in front late in the first half, with Matthew Hughes and Declan Martin getting on the scoresheet after the break.

Armagh City needed just one goal to get past Rathfriland Rangers at Iveagh Park, the winner coming courtesy of Conor Mullen midway through the second half.

And Ballymacash Rangers left it very late to claim victory from their visit to face Dollingstown.

Carl McComb edged ‘Cash in front on 18 minutes, a lead they held until Scott Megaw levelled just after the hour … but Owen McKeown popped up in the 94th minute to grab the win for the visitors.

At the other end, PSNI defeated Moyola Park in the bottom of the table clash at The Dub.

Kyle McCleery opened the scoring for the PSNI on 14 minutes, but two goals from Paul Smith tipped the balance in favour of the visitors at the break.

McCleery doubled his tally a few minutes past the hour before, four minutes into added time, Henry Capper hit a dramatic winner for the home side!

Elsewhere, Portstewart came from a goal down to defeat Banbridge Town at Crystal Park while Lisburn Distillery and Coagh United ground out a 1-1 draw at Ballyskeagh.
