St Patrick’s Ballymena’s two recent trips to Cuningham Memorial produced contrasting fortunes.

The Castle Street side claimed full points from their league fixture at Cuningham ‘A’ as they moved into second position in the table, behind runaway leaders First Ahoghill.

But a second visit to the Cullybackey venue brought an end to St Patrick’s Nelson Cup hopes as they crashed out of the competition after a defeat by Cuningham’s ‘B’ team.
