Ports 9 Malachians 0
Portadowns pre-season friendlies continued apace, with a convincing 9-nil victory over junior club Malachians at Shamrock Park tonight. Lecky (3) Ryan Burns (2) McNeill (1) Gartland (1) Braniff (1) were all on target with Malachians conceding an own goal to rub salt in the wounds. Whilst the scoreline suggests a one-sided game, Malachians gave a good account of themselves and didn’t make it easy for the Ports.
The Portadown team was as follows:
O’Hara – Breen – Gartland – Redman
Burns – Casement – McCafferty – McNeill
Braniff – Lecky
Subs: Maguire, Acheson and Adams
