First Broughshane are finding it difficult to match their own high standards of last season in the Ballymena & District Churches League.

The Main Street side enjoyed a memorable campaign last year, finishing fourth in the table, but they have struggled to recapture that form in the early weeks of this season, taking just eight points from their opening five games.

They will hope, however, that three points from a win over Glenwherry last week can provide a springboard to improve their fortunes.

With leaders Ahoghill not in action, Second Broughshane A cut the gap at the top with a win at Clough A. Latest results are:

Craigs 4, High Kirk 1: P Boyd 15, D Robinson 3; B Herbison 7, T McPeake 14; R Kirkpatrick 10, H Clements 5; R Rodgers 18, J Brown 7.
