IFA PREMIERSHIP FIXTURES RELEASED

IFA PREMIERSHIP newcomers Ballinamallard United begin life in the senior ranks with a home game against Dungannon Swifts on Saturday, 11th August following the release of the 2012/13 fixtures.

Whitey Anderson's side will be hoping construction work at their Ferney Park home will be completed in time to host the fixture but have nominated Dungannon's Stangmore Park ground as their alternative venue.

Defending champions Linfield must travel to Ballymena United, managed by Blues legend Glenn Ferguson, whilst runners-up Portadown host Lisburn Distillery at Shamrock Park.

And in the only game between two of last season's top six Coleraine welcome Setanta Sports Cup champions Seaview to The Showgrounds.

Elsewhere, Cliftonville meet Glenavon at Solitude and Glentoran lock horns with Donegal Celtic at The Oval.
