Cup final fever

Armagh City will be hoping to end their season in real style this week when they contest the Mid-Ulster Cup final against Dungannon Swifts on Tuesday night.
The match will be played at Stangmore Park and kicks-off at 7.45pm.
City will be underdogs against the Premier League outfit but can take heart after turning over Glenavon 3-2 in their semi-final, also playing away from home.
Armagh’s only worry will be the set-up of their back-four as defenders Ultan Lennon (injured) and Luke Grimley (suspended) are unavailable. Dara Noonan was also taken off  near the end of the Bangor match on Saturday as a precaution but, hopefully, he will be fit to play in the cup final.
However, Armagh have plenty of cover in this area and whoever is brought in as replacements will undoubtedly do a decent job.
Elsewhere the team is at full strength and capable of making life more than difficult for the Swifts.
City will be running a supporters bus to the final which leaves their Holm Park clubrooms at 6.45pm.
Meanwhile, Armagh conclude their Championship One season this Saturday, April 25, when they entertain Knockbreda at Holm Park, kick-off 3pm.
A win for City means they would overtake their Belfast opponents in the league table, finishing in a creditable seventh place.
But it will not be easy against a confident Knockbreda outfit who have shown improved form recently.
The sides usually have a close encounter and another eagerly contested match is envisaged again this time around.
Following the match a ‘Night of the Races’ has been arranged in the clubrooms, (starting around 6pm), and everyone is cordially invited to attend.
The ‘Players Presentation’ evening is also scheduled to take place in Armagh City Hotel on Saturday, May 16. Following the awards and dinner there will be music and dancing. Anyone wishing to attend can contact club chairman Philip Johnston or any committee member for details.
