Kearney relishing United challenge thumbnailNew Ballymoney United manager Liam Kearney admits to having “some irons in the fire” on the player transfer front and hopes to announce new signings this week. Liam Kearney, Ballymoney United manager

NEW Ballymoney United boss Liam Kearney has said tapping into his brother is one of the ways he hopes to help the club win the Northern Ireland Intermediate League this season.
The former player was unveiled as Keith Thompson's replacement last week and since then has wasted no time in reorganising his backroom staff and identifying potential signings.
Kearney takes charge of his first training session this evening (Tuesday) as his side prepares to welcome Newbuildings United to Riada Stadium for the league opener this Saturday.
Part of any planning will likely see him pick up the phone to his sibling who, incidentally, is the current manager of Coleraine Football Club. "I speak to Oran about football day in and day out, week in and week out, so of course it is going to be a benefit," he told Chronicle Sport. "Chatting to someone whose team is sitting at the top of the Irish Premiership is a no-brainer. I know the game against Newbuildings is going to be tough, they have beaten us already this year in a cup competition, but I feel we can get something out of the game.
