Ballingarry AFC were handed a difficult opening to the 2015/16 season with a visit to NCW on the opening day, Friday 21st August 2015. They will then host NCW Rovers in the second fixture on Sunday 23rd. Both these clubs will be hoping to push for honours. Ballingarry will be hoping to reverse an unwanted trend, they haven’t won an opening day fixture since returning to the Premier in 2011/12. Their last first day win was in Division 1 during 2010/11 against St Itas.
Manager Shanahan has strengthened the squad considerably with the signings of Barry O’Callaghan, Brian Burke and Jerry Lenihan while their pre-season has been impressive. They will hope to hit the ground running and secure as many points as possible during the first week when they play three games.
