Crossmaglen Rangers and Harps are set to renew their rivalry in the Armagh Senior Football Championship now that they have been paired in the quarter-finals.

In a match that is a re-run of last year's final, Rangers will be bidding to take what they hope will prove a decisive step towards their 20th county title in 21 years.

Harps secured their place by virtue of a 3-17 to 3-14 win over Sarsfields at the weekend with Rangers having earlier accounted for Tir na nOg.

Also through to the last eight are St Patrick's who will now meet either Wolfe Tones or Forkhill while Ballymacnab will take on Clann Eireann.

Ballymacnab are viewed as dark horses following a fine win over Pearse Og at the weekend while Wolfe Tones will be particularly keen to show improved form following their defeat to Maghery.

While Crossmaglen Rangers are still in pole position for the title, the championship has assumed an extra competitive edge according to Armagh spokesman Sean O Moaliste.

"There are a few teams in there with their eye on the title," he says.
