It’s the ‘Battle of the Bann’ for Moneyslane and Banbridge Town as they go head to head in the second round of the Bob Radcliffe Cup next Saturday (12th September).

Slane spent three seasons being hosted at Crystal Park while Jubilee Park was being completed.

The BAWA have many happy memories there including winning Division Two on the last day of the season in 2011 and lifting the Alan Wilson Cup in May.

Now they will return as the visitors (kick-off 2.30pm).

Rathfriland Rangers, meanwhile, have been drawn away to Lurgan Celtic in the second round, that match kicking off at the same time at Knockramer Park.

IRISH CUP

There is also a local derby to look forward to in the secound round of the Irish Cup.

Banbridge Rangers will host Seapatrick, who have already beaten the Villagers in the Bob Radcliffe Cup and the league this season.

Meanwhile, also in round two, Moneyslane will travel to Downshire YM, Drama will host Newcastle and Rathfriland Rangers will welcome Crewe United.

Those games will be played on Saturday 3rd October.
