Enniskillen Rangers quest for a return to Windsor Park and a third Junior Cup title in a row continues on Monday night when they take on Bessbrook United in Loughgall in the semi-final of Junior football’s Blue Riband competition.

It is another big game for manager Michael Kerr and his charges although Kerr acknowledges that they know what to expect from the occasion at this stage.

“Bar Conor Watson, everyone of the boys were there last year and the majority of them the year before as well so we know what to expect from the occasion and I’ll be telling Conor about what to expect,” he said.

“What I keep telling the boys though is that it is just another game of football and we want to play our normal game and get a performance. If we play to our potential I would be confident that we will win the game, no matter who we are playing.

“We have had Bessbrook watched and we will look at what they have to offer but first and foremost we will be looking at our own performance and getting it right.” he added.

Kerr though expects his side to be tested against a Bessbrook side who have already accounted for Enniskillen Town and Strathroy Harps in this year’s competition.

“Anybody in the semi-final is not going to be an easy tie and after Bessbrook beat Enniskillen Town and Strathroy Harps both away from home it shows you their credentials and tells you that they won’t be easy beaten. It is a game we are looking forward to though,” he stated.

The only injury concern for Rangers is Kerr himself.

“We have maybe 19 players fighting to get into the squad for the game and if I’m not right I won’t put myself in the squad,” he stressed.

Rangers are on the verge of a third successive final although Kerr is keen to state that their only focus is on Bessbrook on Monday night.

“There are not many teams who get to three finals in a row and hopefully we can go on and do that, it would be a brilliant achievement. At the end of the day though we are looking no further ahead than Bessbrook in Loughgall this Monday night. You can’t take your eye of the ball and we won’t,” he concluded.
