Danske Bank Schools’ Cup reaches semi-final stage

The Bluebell Stadium and Mill Meadow will be hosting the semi-finals of this season’s Danske Bank Schools’ Cup tomorrow (22 February).

Preparing to lock horns at the Meadow in Castledawson are St Columb’s College from Derry-Londonderry and east Belfast school Grosvenor Grammar.

Cup holders St Columb’s will be aiming to reach the final for the fourth time in seven years. In last year’s decider they swept aside Ballymena’s St Louis Grammar, winning the contest by five goals to one.

Kick-off time at the home of Moyola Park is 1pm.

In the other semi-final of the NISFA U18 competition another east Belfast school, Ashfield Boys’ High, who exited at the last four stage last season, will be up against Integrated College Dungannon at the Bluebell.

The match at the home of Ballymacash Rangers in Lisburn is also scheduled to kick off at 1pm.

The winners of the two matches will meet in the Danske Bank Schools’ Cup final at the National Football Stadium at Windsor Park on Tuesday 14 March.
