Ardmore reached the final of the City Cup after a comprehensive 5-2 win over Foyle Wanderers with ace marksman Calvin McCallion hitting four.

Damie McGee’s side will now meet the winners of the Draperstown versus Lisahally tie which will be played tomorrow (Thursday) night, at Dungiven.

Congratulations to Ardmore Reserves in winning the Supplementary Cup with a 2-1 victory over Draperstown Reserves.

This Saturday there are three games in the Premier Division.

City Cup

Draperstown v Lisahally

Draperstown’s main aim at the beginning of the season was to gain promotion to the Premiership and that is almost achieved, so it is a bonus that they find themselves in the semi-final of this cup although their performances certainly merits it.

Lisahally have lost their way a little bit in the last couple of weeks but they would also have had one eye on this game, they are a quality side with a great team spirit. They may come out on top but it won’t be easy.

Prediction: Lisahally

Premier Division

BBOB v Ardmore

Overall even if the Old Boys stay up it will have been one of their worst seasons ever and they must strengthen for next season.

No one can deny Ardmore they have been the best team all season.

They are going all out for a clean sweep of all four trophies and manager Damien McGee must take a lot of the credit.

Prediction: Ardmore

Foyle Wanderers v Lincoln Courts

It looks as if Wanderers are going to have to settle for the runners up spot, however it will still go down as a decent season.

If they can keep their side together they will always be challenging for honours.

The Courts are merely fulfilling fixtures in a season that promised so much early on just petered away manager Kolyn Patterson knows what is required to make them a force again.

Prediction: Foyle Wanderers

Tullyally v Drummond

Tullyally are another one of those sides who not for the first time were looking to be challenging for honours but a number of poor results in the month of January ended all that.

Drummond are finishing the season with a flourish they are on a winning run which if they can keep it going could see them finish in third spot, they nay continue their winning run.

Prediction: Drummond
