Yesterday was a famous day for County Tyrone at the SuperCupNI.

In the Premier section, James Convie scored a last gasp winner at Coleraine Showgrounds to give Tyrone a famous 4-3 victory over Celtic, knocking the Scottish giants out of the tournament. Convie's winner came seconds after Celtic equalised.

In the Junior section, Tyrone beat Chile's Colina 1-0 to set-up a semi-final with Rangers tonight.

Tyrone boss David Harvey said: "They showed great character to keep fighting to the very end."

In tonight's Premier semi-finals, County Antrim will play Newcastle United at Riada in Ballymoney(5.45pm) and Valencia take on Right To Dream at the same venue (3.45pm).

In the Junior section, Rangers and Tyrone play at the Coleraine Showgrounds (7.30pm) while Charlton Athletic face Pumas at the Riada (1.45pm). In the Minor semi-finals, Ballymena United play Dungannon at Anderson Park at noon, while Finn Harps face Glentoran at 12.30pm in Portstewart.
