Sion are all set for a new season and will have a new skipper at the helm.

The club enjoyed a succesful 2022 with double success for Simon Galloway and his squad.

They begin their Qualifying One season with a home tie at The Holm field taking on Eglinton 2nd XI.

"Sion are looking forward to a new challenge this year moving into Qualifying one and the squad are excited for the season,' said a club spokesperson.

"We believe we have the quality within the team to make a good fist of the campaign and playing against better teams on better pitches will only serve to improve our game.

"There has been a change of captain for the season ahead, with Simon Galloway stepping down after many years at the helm but continuing to play.

"Taking over is the very capable Andy Lucas and we have no doubt his guile and experience will see the team to great effect over the season.

"A couple of returning players bolster the squad with Johnnie and Chris Havern lining out for their home club again. 

"Preparation is completed and now it’s down to business from Saturday."
