Ormeau travel to North Ayrshire this Saturday for their second fixture of the SBL Premier Division season.

Ormeau will field the same team that beat London-based Urban two weeks ago. Zak Wilson, who played for North Ayrshire for two years, is joined by Paul McCreery and Ashley Robinson. The all-Northern Irish trio racked up an impressive 6-1 victory in their first game of the season.

North Ayrshire (NATTC) have a mixed record so far, beating Fusion 4-3 but losing to Ormesby 6-1.

Gervis Knox, Ormeau co-founder and head coach, said: “We were delighted to get the win against Urban and the guys felt they played well given such a long period without international competition.”

He added they “expect a battle” from a strong Scottish team.

Colin Dalgleish, Chris Main and Martin Johnson will play for NATTC.

Main is looking forward to a competitive game. He said: “We hope to keep our playing level as high as the previous matches and string together a few big wins against the leading Irish players this coming Saturday.”

You can watch the game live on the North Ayrshire Facebook page.
