PRO snippet – Cup update

It is Cup week again with play in both the IBA and PGL competitions.

In the PGL Senior Cup, sponsored by the Coleman Bros, six teams have negotiated their way through to the QF stage – Old Bleach A, Ballymena A & B, Dunbarton A, Transport A and Larne A. We will have a look at the fixtures once the final two round of 16 ties have been completed.

In the IBA Senior Cup two fixtures stand out – Dunbarton away to NIBA kingpin’s Whitehead and Belmont versus a resurgent Banbridge.

There are three all PGL fixtures with Old Bleach v Larne, Transport v Salisbury and Ards v Ballymena.

In the Intermediate Cup Mossley, Comber and CI Knock all face interesting away ties against Dungiven, Kilrea and Annalong respectively. The all PGL tie of the round looks like Ballymena B (fresh from their win away to Falls A in the PGL cup last night) against old rivals Downpatrick.

In the Junior Cup there are some cracking ties with Old Bleach B v Falls B and Mossley B v Cookstown B catching the eye.

Three PGL sides face tough away games as Larne B (Dun Laoghaire), Pickie B (Portrush) and Ewarts B (St James Gate) all hit the road.

Good luck to all the PGL teams over the weekend.
