This weekend, Banbridge Rangers will be going all out to secure their spot in the Premier Cup final.

They travel to face Camlough Rovers (all games kick-off at 1.30pm) in the semi final on Saturday.

Rangers won’t have it easy as Camlough are currently sitting second in the Mid-Ulster Intermediate A division, only two points behind leaders Ballymacash Rangers.

If they’re to make it through, Gers will be hoping for another strong performance from Davis ‘Jerry’ Philip, the St Lucian striker who has made a storming start to his Banbridge Rangers career.

He’s netted seven times in five games and could be the key to unlock Camlough’s defence.

Gers will need a better performance than the one they provided in the last meeting between the teams, when they went down 4-1.

SCARVA RANGERS

Scarva Rangers are still going in search of their first league point of the season. Having had a tremendous promotion-winning term last season, they have struggled to adapt to the higher level of Division One, suffering 12 successive defeats.

This weekend, they host title-challenging Silverwood United, who are just one point off the summit with two games in hand on leaders Coalisland Athletic.

DONACLONEY

Donacloney have a great chance to reel in third bottom Armagh Blues. The locals host the only team below them in the table, Union Lusa, on Saturday hoping to pick up only a second league victory. Lusa, however, could leapfrog the Cloney with a win.

BANBRIDGE TOWN AFC

This weekend, Banbridge Town AFC host Loughgall Reserves at Cheney Park in the Reserve Championship.

At the time of going to press, Dromore Amateurs had no fixture and Rathfriland Rangers’ match had yet to be confirmed.
