BUYA round-up: Newly kitted-out sides emerge undefeated at weekend

BALLYMENA United Youth Academy had six sides resplendent in their new kits at the weekend, all sponsored by McBurney Transport, and it certainly seemed to do no harm on the day as all six returned undefeated.

The under 14s bagged the derby bragging right in a tight game against North End while the under 13s remain top of the National League after an away draw at an excellent Glenavon side.

All the Lisburn league sides returned unbeaten from their travels, the under 13 development side in particular now starting to show good form as their season progresses.

United’s second under 12 side bounced back from last week’s defeat with a great performance, another development side who continue to learn from their weekly training and games.

With two sides at both under 12 and under 13 level,the Sky Blue Academy is unique in this aspect in the town, giving football to as many boys as possible at these age groups .
