Kearney's boys off the flyer thumbnailCiaron Harkin (right) is quick to celebrate Ian Parkhill's opener as Coleraine defeated Warrenpoint Town 3-0 at The Showgrounds.

Coleraine....................................3
Warrenpoint Town......................0
COLERAINE earned a 3-0 success on the opening day of the season as goals from Ian Parkhill, Stephen Lowry and Eoin Bradley were enough to overcome Warrenpoint Town on the Ballycastle Road.
The opening day of the 2018/19 Danske Bank Premiership campaign looked as if it was going to be tough for Oran Kearney's Coleraine. A mixture of injuries and suspensions meant the Bannsiders had a total of 10 absentees from the match day squad.
The absentee list included Aaron Traynor, Lyndon Kane, Adam Mullan, Steven Douglas, Stephen O'Donnell, Aaron Burns, Matthew Kirk, Brad Lyons, Jamie McGonigle and James McLaughlin.
This was to have no bearing on the game as goals from Ian Parkhill, Stephen Lowry and Eoin Bradley secured all three points for the Bannsiders.
Warrenpoint Town almost grabbed the lead in the opening minutes. Coleraine failed to deal with a dangerous corner and Stephen Lowry was forced to clear 'Point's effort off the line.
