Muckamore are keen to make a new start after suffering relegation in 2019, and have skipper Sam Gordon at the helm.

There will be a few new names on the team sheet as six players have moved on to pastures new.

Far from being despondent though, Gordon sees it as an opportunity to hit the reset button, with the emphasis firmly on the young talent at Moylena.

"Firstly we would like to wish all the boys who have left the best of luck this season for their new clubs and hope to see them succeed," he began graciously.

"Obviously with the departures we have a new look Muckamore side with a lot of fresh faces in the first XI. Iím personally very excited to see how this group of players perform come match time.

"The lads have put in a lot of work prior to the Covid pandemic, and now that we are back training again it hasnít changed.

"I think everyone from first down to 4ths canít wait to get out in the middle!

"Even with losing a lot of players our club still has aspirations to play at the top level. I believe this group of young lads have the talent we just need to show it on the pitch.

"This year with the no relegation or promotion it gives out guys a great chance to showcase their skills with limited pressure.

"As much as our club would have loved to see Peet Pienaar come over this year it gives the opportunity to another local to display their talent."
