Lisburn Distillery’s Under 20’s development team defeated Armagh Cityy Under 20’s
It's been a while, but a second successive league defeat left Whites' fans deflated as the table once more tightened up for all those involved. An early goal didn't help, but the team really didn't look like they could do enough to grab a point and that was the case.
But equally, the team is in fifth place because of the performances and points to date and although somewhat disappointed like everyone else Mac, as usual, was open and fair in his assessment afterwards.
“Sometimes you can accept the result when you were beaten by the better team on the day and there is no doubt about it, Moyola was the better team on the day but it is the manner of the defeat that is worrying” said Mac.
“George (O'Boyle) and I obviously will always take responsibility; I spoke on Saturday after the match about the players taking responsibility for their actions because collectively as a team and as a squad the whole lot was very poor.
And without exaggerating it is probably the worst performance of the season in my
eyes. I wasn't expecting it and it was a bit of a kick in the teeth, I was expecting
to win against Sport and Leisure and we didn't; we asked for a response and got nothing.

With 2017 underway, ‘The Whites’ are calling on all friends of the famous club to buy shares and own a part of Lisburn Distillery FC. Widely acknowledged as a club with a rich history, the club are looking to the future and aspire to return to senior football, develop it’s ground and have closer links in the local community.
The clubs revival on & off the pitch so far this season has been the result of a lot of hard work shared amongst the club’s volunteers behind the scenes, whilst the new management team of Colin McIlwaine & George O’Boyle have seen the team show signs of real progress in the league and cup competitions. There is a genuine feeling of determination to see the club return to it’s former glories and we appreciate that many supporters and those who have the club at heart, may not be able to attend matches regularly. We would encourage everyone connected with the club to contribute to the share issue as we look to rebuild and move the club forward.
The club have not issued shares for several years but felt the time was right to extend and open up the clubs ownership. Anyone buying shares will become a joint owner of LDFC, owning their very own stake in the club. The monies raised will be reinvested into the clubs finances. We will also be updating our current shareholders register and writing out to all current shareholders giving them the option to purchase additional shares at this time. Shares are available at a nominal price of £5 each (minimum purchase of five per person) and can be paid in cash, bank/online transfer, or cheque made out to ‘Lisburn Distillery FC’
All shareholders will be issued with an individual and personalised share certificate during the month of February. For more information please contact Ashley Wragg at email@example.com for an application form or if you wish to read more with a view to making an online purchase click here for more information for purchases of £50 or less or click here for larger bulk purchases. Thanks to everyone for your support! Come on you Whites!
