The under 10s will get their first ever taste of 11 a side competitive action when they take on Springfield Star whilst the Under 11’s will compete against Aquinas, in what will be their second competitive season in the SBYL.

The club would also like to wish their former players and indeed the whole team of the newly amalgamated Ballymena United Under 17s as they too start their league campaign in the Lisburn Youth League against Shankill Youth.
