Crossmaglen Rangers and Harps will renew their rivalry in the Armagh Senior Football Championship when they meet in the quarter-finals tomorrow at Keady (3.45pm).

And Dromintee and Maghery clash in what should be an equally absorbing contest at the Athletic Grounds (5.00pm).

The prospect of landing what would be their 20th title in 21 years will certainly elicit a committed performance from Rangers against a Harps side that fell badly by the wayside when the teams clashed in last year's county final.

Aaron Kernan, Paul Hearty, Michael McNamee, Johnny Hanratty, Stephen Kernan, Tony Kernan and Kyle Carragher represent the experienced core of the Rangers side.

Skipper Carragher, though, insists that Harps will have absorbed lessons from last year's defeat.

"We expect a much tougher match on this occasion," he says.

The Dromintee and Maghery tie sees a plethora of county players in action, while St Patrick's take on Wolfe Tones at Ballymacnab tomorrow (1.30pm). In the remaining quarter-final Clann Eireann will face Ballymacnab at Pearse Og Park today.
