The draw for the third round of the Intermediate Cup has been made, sending both of our local sides on trips away from home.

Banbridge Town will travel to take on Amateur League Premier Division side Nortel while Moneyslane have been awarded a trip to face Championship One side Ballyclare Comrades.

Town smashed their way past Portaferry Rovers 4-1 in round two during a run that has seen them go eight games without defeat in all competitions. If they can maintain that form, they will hope to make it safely through to the last 16 of the prestigious competition.

Moneyslane enjoyed what many at the club believed to be their biggest ever victory in round two.

They hit Glentoran Seconds for six in a 6-2 victory at Jubilee Park and now get the chance to face second tier opposition in a competitive fixture.

Slane are on a sterling run of form too, having lost just four of their last 27 fixtures.

Both of those round three fixtures will take place on Saturday 23rd January, kick-off 1.30pm.
