Keep up with Armagh i

City hope for Swift win in Belfast!

ARMAGH City will travel away for the third successive Saturday to play a Championship Two match this weekend.
This time the Holm Park outfit will face Sport and Leisure Swifts at their Glen Road complex in Belfast.
And, once again, City will be looking for maximum points as they continue their winning start to the season.
Following 2-4 and 0-4 victories away to Queens and Killymoon, City will be hoping to maintain their early spot at the top of the league with another positive result over Sport and Leisure.
Now under the management of Frankie Wilson, the Belfast side collected their first point in two games when they drew 1-1 last Saturday at home to a very competitive Wakehurst side.
This shows Sport and Leisure will be yet another tough hurdle to overcome and certainly should not be taken lightly.
At the same time Armagh were brushing aside the challenge of Killymoon, with two goals in each half at the Mid-Ulster Sports Arena in Cookstown.
The deadlock in this game was broken with a wonderful free-kick from Matthew Hynds and followed-up before the interval with a score from new signing, Kevin Keegan, who played his debut match for City on Saturday after leaving Donegal Celtic.
Midfielders Eamon Kelly and Mark Grimley added further goals after the break to give the visitors a comfortable win.
In their two league matches, to date, Armagh have scored eight goals and conceded just two.
This makes up for the disappointment of losing 1-0 to Harland and Wolff  last Tuesday night in the League Cup. However, a very inexperienced side turned out on that occasion but still gave a very good account of themselves against Championship One opposition.
Promotion from Championship Two, however, is the local team’s priority this season and all their efforts are being put into obtaining this goal.
Saturday, August 24, Sport and Leisure Swifts v Armagh City at Glen Road, Belfast, kick-off 3pm.
