        SEASON 2017-18

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The league season gets underway on Friday Night when Glebe rangers host Desertmartin and Cookstown RBL meet Coagh United. It would appear to be a very interesting season with the addition of Bangor FC who start off with a home game against Donegal Celtic in the 1st Round of the County Antrim Steel & Sons Cup.

Last season’s team have been boosted with the inclusion of Cookstown RBL and Cookstown Youth who have made the move from the Junior 1st Division as was their plan of progression when they became Members of the League. St James Swifts will also be making their debut in Intermediate Football having moved from the Belfast and District Junior League and of course Bangor.

One bit of disappointment is the demise of Wakehurst from the Intermediate Division and Wakehurst Strollers from the Junior Division who have opted to take a year out in order to re-build.
