With many of the Intermediate clubs involved in external competitions, it meant a reduced set of domestic Intermediate matches. In the only A division match, Lower Maze had a 2-1 win over Seapatrick, whilst there were some surprises in the B division as the new boys continued to thrive.
Craigavon City maintained their 100% record with a good win at Bourneview Mill whilst Tullyvallen shocked Moneyslane as they won by the odd goal in three at Jubilee Park. Markethill Swifts remain unbeaten also, as they secured all three points in a close match at Dungannon Tigers.
Junior football got under way and there were successes in Division 1 for both last year's winners and runners-up. Hill Street accounted for Armagh Rovers in Lurgan and Silverwood Utd won at Riverdale. More impressive were Ambassadors, who thumped Scarva Rangers by 8-2. Newly-promoted Red Star also had a good start as they hammered six without reply past Ballyoran.
In the only Division 3 fixture, Goodyear opened their account at the expense of White City, whilst two new teams entertained a good crowd in Banbridge, as the Youth Club OB scored the only goal in their fixture against Southside.
There were 13 first round ties of the Marshall Cup played and 13 goals were shared in Keady, where the local side from Division 2, Keady Celtic ran out winners by 9-4 against Aghalee Village of Division 4. Another Division 4 side to take credit were Newmills, who held Division 2 hopefuls Celtic Club to 4-4 after extra time, only to lose on penalties.
