Schools' Cup taking shape despite weather

The Ulster Bank Schools' Cup has, as usual, been affected by the weather and examinations – and although the quarter-finals were due to be played today, only three of the last eight schools are known.

The final first round game was only completed on Saturday, Sullivan Upper beating Larne Grammar, but their second round game against holders Limavady Grammar will not be played until next week.

The quarter-final draw has been made and the winners of that game will be at home to Regent House.

There is one definite second round tie with Down High hosting Grosvenor but four matches must be played before the other two quarter-finals are known. Three will take place on Friday.
