BUCCS HOME TO UCD

published:Nov  20

Buccaneers face University College Dublin in the Ulster Bank League at Dubarry Park on Saturday afternoon with the action getting under way at 2.30 p.m. Buccs are still chasing their first win in Division 1A and surely their luck will turn for the better sooner rather than later. They have been decidedly unfortunate in a number of matches so far in what has been a steep learning curve for the squad.
