THE Mid-Ulster Radcliffe Cup final between Lurgan Celtic and Loughgall, has finally been set for Holm Park, Armagh on Tuesday April 26 (7.30pm).

THE Mid-Ulster Radcliffe Cup final between Lurgan Celtic and Loughgall, has finally been set for Holm Park, Armagh on Tuesday April 26 (7.30pm).

This game has been the subject of dispute since Boxing Day when it was called off at Mourneview Park in view of alleged threats against Celtic.

Then it was arranged for Easter Monday at Holm Park but Lurgan protested to the IFA that the vote to determine the venue, included those from Loughgall.

The IFA referred the matter back to the Mid-Ulster FA who took a second vote without the participation of the Loughgall delegates and this agreed to Holm Park as the preferred choice.

Fermanagh's NFC Kesh are through to the final of the IFA Junior Cup following their win this week over Carnbane League outfit Shanro Santos.

They now await the winners of Derryhirk United, also from the Fermanagh League and Ballywalter REc who face each other at Seaview next Monday (7.30).

Dunmurry League's West Belfast United are one step away from the Co. Antrim Junior Shield decider.

Downpatrick Hospital are already in the final, having beaten Knockbreda Parish II, leaving West Belfast against Ballymena Saturday Morning League's Raceview Rangers in tonight's other penultimate tie (7.30) at Taylor's Avenue, Carrick.
