Warrenpoint V Glenavon 12th August 2017 Aug 14, 2017

Our first game back in the Danske Bank Premierhsip ended with defeat.  New boy, Mark Griffin, for Glenavon scored twice in the opening 25 minutes.  Darren Murray pulled one back for Warrenpoint before halt time.  With the introduction of Stephen Murray and Lorcan Forde after the break Warrenpoint looked more threatening.  After a penalty decision and the conversion by Darren Murray the home side pulled it back all square.  It was the home side that looked more threatening in the second half as the early nerves of the newly assembled young squad settled.

However, 12 minutes before full time the visitors scored their third.  A defeat in the opening day has not dampened spirits at The Rabbits as they look forward to visiting Seaview on Tuesday 15th.
