A truly amazing year for Colin Valley Football Club continues this saturday 5th September when they take their first steps in the Northern Amateur Football League.
The first game of what is being seen as a new era for the club will be played out against the backdrop of the Irish Sea - as Valleys emerging stars travel to the fishing village of Portavogie to open their league campaign. A team that is being tipped as potential winners of this years very difficult 2c Division, Portavogie Rangers pose a signifigant threat in Valleys first match - and to this years promotion/title hopes in general.
Valley Manager Danny (Dutta) Mc Mullan would have it no other way though and is seeing this tough opener as a great chance to lay down a marker for the season ahead. It's said he's been walking around with a dazed smile on his face since he heard who the opening game was against - is this just simple eagerness to get the game underway or has the Valley manager been smoking something we dont know about???
The Reserve team will open to a well established Green Island side who play just out past the Jordanstown area and Kevin (Spud) Murphy will be looking to see what promising players he can potentially put forward for selection for the Junior Cup match against Magherafelt Reds in 3 weeks time.
All players at Colin Valley FC have been asked to take the opportunity on hand this weekend to show just what they can offer the Northern Amateur Football League - and also the club itself - over the next few seasons. Goodluck for the weekend and the season ahead boys!!
