Albion open their 2010/2011 season campaign this weekend with a home game against Crossbarry rivals “Parkview Celtic”. Albion will be boosted after an impressive pre-season & a strengthened squad, but will in no way take this game lightly as they fell to a 2-0 defeat at the beginning of last season to Parkview.
Albion have held onto the same squad as last season plus have added 7 new players in Conan Dillon, Rob Daly, Eamonn Dempsey, Eoin O’Mahony, Lorcan Gately, Wayne Carroll & the returning John Hipwell – all who have had a very strong pre-season with some great performances on the field.
The Parkview game at Eli Lilly last season ended up in a cracker with Albion 3-0 up, Parkview came back to 3-3 with 2 minutes left until John Duggan scored one of the goals of the season with a stunning free kick from 30 yards in injury time to give Albion all 3 points, for which fact Parkview will surely be out for revenge this time round.
Kick off 10.45am Sunday 22nd – Eli Lilly.
