THE draw has been made for the 5th Round of the Irish Cup with Linfield v Crusaders the tie of the round.


Two other all-Premiership ties see Cliftonville take on Ballinamallard United at Solitude, and Portadown welcome Dungannon Swifts to Shamrock Park.

Five Northern Amateur Football League sides were in the draw with Rathfriland Rangers away to Institute, Ballynahinch United away to Premiership side Coleraine, Immaculata away to Ards, Rosario YC travelling the short distance to Knockbreda, and Kilmore Rec heading to Tobermore United.

Ahead of the draw, Chairman of the Challenge Cup Committee Gerard Lawlor said: “The Cup Final in May is an occasion that every player wants to be involved in, and I am sure that there are many players here today who have that very dream.  Linfield have dominated this competition in recent seasons and will want to win it again, but other teams are queuing up to lift the Irish Cup.”
