Currie vowing to make changes regardless of Ports' Premier fate

By Keith Bailie

Niall Currie is promising a Shamrock Park shake-up, no matter what division Portadown are in next season.

And although many have accepted the club is destined for the drop, Currie is determined to fight to the end, buoyed by the performances in their last two league outings against Linfield and Crusaders when they took a point off each of the top two.

Ahead of the final eight matches of the campaign, with today's opponents Ballymena United the only team in the top half that the Ports have to face, Currie believes his men are capable of putting together a run that would clinch a great escape.

"We'll keep fighting, but I think I have a good idea of what's needed and I've a good idea of what direction we need to go in," said Currie. "We need to get a lot of things sorted out and there'll be a lot of changes at this club, that's for sure. There are changes coming. We'll have full commitment from all the players and we'll make sure that there is a real pride about wearing the jersey."

Young centre-back Ross Larkin has penned a new deal.
