fonaCAB Junior Cup | Quarter-finals recap

There were away wins across the board as the fonaCAB Craig Stanfield Junior Cup reached the quarter-final stages.

Cleary Celtic, Tummery Athletic and Enniskillen Rangers all won on the road to book their places in the last four, while the Trojans YCG-Lincoln Courts clash failed a morning pitch inspection.

The 'tie of the round' saw an all-Fermanagh & Western League meeting between Lisbellaw United and Enniskillen Rangers at Drumad.

Rangers moved in front with around a quarter-of-an-hour on the clock when Eoin McManus connected with a corner to head past keeper Joshua Brownlee, but Lisbellaw got back on level terms on 57 minutes after Philip Beacom slotted past Joel Peden.

But Rangers regained the lead five minutes after that with what proved to be the winner after Mark White brought the ball across from the right side of the area before laying it off for Mark Cutler to slot home from six yards.

Holders Dergview Reserves relinquished their grip on the trophy after going down at home to Tummery Athletic.

Alaaeddine Dhouioui opened the scoring for Dergview after 16 minutes, a lead they held until midway through the second half when Gerard Duddy levelled for Tummery with Martin Hughes then bagging the winner with ten minutes remaining.

And Coalisland Athletic, winners in 2021/22, also exited the competition after Cleary Celtic defeated them by the odd goal in three at the Gortgonis Playing Fields.

Daniel McNulty edged Coalisland into an early third minute lead, but it took two goals in the closing stages to see Celtic through after Declan Monaghan - on 83 minutes - and Stephen Hughes, with a minute of normal time remaining, settled the tie.
