New signing Ronan Hale could make his debut for Crusaders this evening away to Newry City (7.45pm).

The 20-year-old former Birmingham and Derry City striker moved to the Crues last night, joining his older brother Rory at Seaview.

A win at the Showgrounds would see Stephen Baxter's men go level on points with the Danske Bank Premiership leaders Linfield.

But midfielder Declan Caddell expects a battle for the defending champions ..

The north Belfast club is flying high on and off the pitch.

Caddell is in his testimonial year and says there's been a dramatic transformation since he joined up more than a decade ago...
