BALLINASCREEN have released their amended fixtures for their Ulster Club Minor Hurling Championship after the weather played havoc with last weekend’s games.
The tournament returns after two years of inactivity.
Reigning champions Loughgiel are back to defend the title they won in 2019 when they take on Lavey in the cup competition.
The shield gets proceedings underway this weekend, with the eventual winners advance to the cup semi-finals.
The tournament began in 1995 with Portaferry crowned champions, one of 13 different winners in the history of the competition.
