Ard's Anderson's Actions 
While most of us watched Ireland miraculously defeat Holland in the World Cup qualifiers, only a few managed it down to the Showgrounds on Saturday to the match which Ards refused to have played on Friday night. In any event the match was unsavoury and the actions afterwards worse. Ards managed to beat Newry 1-0 on their own turf, but it is reported that former 'Red Devil' and former Director of Football at Newry, Trevor Anderson gestured toward the Newry fans on his exit from the pitch. Remarks were also traded between Newry fans and the referee. Read Jimmy's excellent account of the events here.

Armagh City have foiled Newry Town hopes in the first round of the new-look League Cup. Armagh who defeated Newry last season in the final of the Mid-Ulster Cup beat Newry 2-0 in this first CIS Cup match.
Newry's influential mid-fielder Robbie Casey has resumed matches following an injury which originally had him ruled out until Christmas. Robbie has now played in the Reserves matches and for a short spell against Armagh.
