THe Harryville Homers squad aiming to bring the Junior Cup back to Ballymena.

Ryan Martin (goalkeeeper): Semi final penalty shoot out hero. Steady and consistent performer this season once again.

Alex McCosh (goalkeeper): Big pre season acquisition from rivals Carniny. Probably the most successful keeper in BSML history and another top performer between the sticks.

Richard Forsythe (defender): Tough uncompromising defender. Rock solid and loads of experience.

Ricky Nicholl (defender): Outstanding season. Utility player. Good user of the ball but an awful dress sense.

Christopher O’Hara (defender): New boy to the squad. Slotted in well. Gives the manager good option 
on the left.

Ryan Stewart (defender): Hammer like left foot. 16 goals from left back says it all. Marauding runs and dead 
ball specialist.

Jason McKay (defender): Another versitile defender. Can play in a number of positions.

Jason Ritchie (defender): Carrying on the long Ritchie association with the Homers. Solid and robust.

Marcus Spratt (defender): Summer signing who was star man in the semi final 
for many.

Ian Russell (defender): Defensive lynchpin, who has been a Homers stalwart for over a decade.

Mark McKay (midfield): Midfielder trickster. Strong as an ox and confident on the ball.

Gary Baird (midfield): Midfield live wire. Driving force and inspiration to all around him.

Alan Rainey (forward): Flying winger. Scored 30 goals from out wide and countless assists. Match winner 
on his day.

Jason Logan (forward): Another with pace to burn. Eye for goal. Hardworking wideman. Great team player.

David Nicholl (forward): Mercurial wideman with plenty of tricks. Goals and assists aplenty this season.

Jason Magill (forward): Rangy striker in a rich vein of goal scoring form. Match winner against Kilrea in 
earlier round.

Paul McNeill (forward): Goal machine who was last year’s JUnior Cup Final goalscoring hero and MOM.

Gary Bonnes (forward): Club captain and talisman. Man for the big occasion and perfect focal point 
for the attack.
