As Saturday is the first round of the Gallagher Challenge Cup there are no Robinson Services Premier or Section 1 league games on Saturday however there are two Section 1 games on Sunday and a full complement on Saturday in Section 2.

Robinson Services League Section 1
There are two intriguing games on Sunday in Section 1 as joint leaders on net run rate and unbeaten Derriaghy travel to Uprichard Park to take on Bangor. Second placed Downpatrick, who are also unbeaten so far this season, entertain Lisburn at The Meadow.

Sunday Fixtures
Bangor v Derriaghy, at Upritchard Park, Bangor
Downpatrick v Lisburn, at The Meadow, Downpatrick

Robinson Services League Section 2
There is a full complement of fixtures in Section 2 this coming Saturday for the first time this season. Early Joint leaders Ballymena face a tricky away trip to near neighbours Templepatrick. Saintfield also have two wins from 2 and face the short trip to the Village Ground to take on Drumaness.

Donaghadee and Larne (who face each other on Sunday at Northfield) play their first games of the season on Saturday with the former hosting Belfast SuperKings (who won their first competitive game of cricket last weekend) and the latter hosting Monaghan after the game was switched to Sandy Bay.

Cliftonville Academy are another team who are unbeaten in league and cup this season and they host Dundrum at the Castle Grounds. Dundrum were on the wrong end of a high scoring game against Belfast SuperKings last weekend.

Two teams looking for their first win of the season face each other at Fullerton Park as Cooke Collegians host Victoria. The last game in Section 2 on Saturday sees Dunmurry travel to City of Belfast Playing Fields at Mallusk to take on BISC.
