Banbridge Rangers Under 16 team will take part in the Mid Ulster Youth Cup Final this Saturday morning against Dungannon Youth at Gordon Playing Fields in Lurgan.

There is little between the two sides who are also contesting the league title and have met already on three occassions this season.

At the start of the season Banbridge Rangers had the upper hand at Dungannon with a 2-1 win but in the return fixture there was a 1-1 stalemate.

The teams were also drawn together in the group stages of the League Cup which ended in a goalless draw.

Colin Martin’s young side are unbeaten in their league campaign to date and two players from the team, Matthew Dodds and Reuben Cobb, have made debuts for the First Team in a breakthrough year for the squad.

The Mid Ulster Youth Cup Quarter Final was a nailbiter against Banbridge Town that was won in the dying minutes of extra time with the Gers securing a 3-2 win.

The Semi Final was much more straight forward as Banbridge Rangers saw off Markethill Swifts 6-0 in an emphatic victory.

Anyone who is intending to go and watch the Final is encouraged to be over at Gordon Playing Fields well before the 10.30am kick off as there are a number of Finals and other matches at the same venue.

The First Team also return to action on Saturday with a trip to Fivemiletown United

Kick off for the First team is at 2.15pm.
