Recent signings available for Carrick match

Josh Doherty and Rory Carson are both available for Saturday’s important fixture against Carrick Rangers

Ards will hope to maintain the gap between ourselves and 11th placed Carrick Rangers in this Danske Bank Premiership game at the Bangor Fuels Arena on Saturday

Colin Nixon’s squad will be boosted by the inclusion of signings Josh Doherty and Rory Carson. International clearance was received on Monday which enables defender Doherty to play. The former Leyton Orient player returns to the club having previously played for Ards Academy before his move across the water. Rory Carson, another former player also returned to the club this week, signing before the transfer window closed.

Ards will however be without Craig McMillen who continues to serve his six match suspension. Gary Liggett will also miss the match as he struggles with injury.

The first meeting between the sides this season ended in a 3-1 win for Ards, while the points were shared at the Loughshore Arena on Boxing Day. The teams are in 9th and 11th place , with Ards ahead by twelve points.

Kick off at the Bangor Fuels Arena is 3pm. Admission is £10 for adults and £7 for concessions.
