Enniskillen Rangers quest for four consecutive Junior Cup titles may have been delayed due to coronavirus, but it gets back up and running on Monday, July 20 with a repeat of last year's semi-final against Bessbrook United.

In the 2019 game Rangers were beaten but due to Bessbrook fielding and ineligible player, the Fermanagh side were reinstated and went on to make it three titles in a row in the competition.

For manager, Mickey Kerr, even though their opponents may use last year as some sort of incentive, the game is "done and dusted" with the only focus being on the game on Monday.

"It’s a new year, a new game, a new season for me and the players and I have already said it to them when I was speaking to them," said Kerr.

"Last year is done and dusted for us. OK there is an incentive there because the boys felt last year they didn’t play to their potential they have a chance to go and prove that last year we did have a bad game in that semi final and we have to show our true potential and that’s up to the players.

"It's not often you get a second chance like that in football so it's really up to them to show they are good enough."

Kerr says any grievance Bessbrook have they can keep that to themselves and that his side's sole focus is on Monday night not what happened 12 months ago.

"Our sole focus is we are 90 minutes away from a Junior Cup final so we want to make sure we put in as close to a perfect performance as we possibly can and I feel personally if we do put in a good performance of what we are capable of we will win the game."

There will be very little to learn about Bessbrook, but Kerr is not underestimating the challenge they will pose to his four in a row chasing side.

"They are a very good side. They are well organised, well drilled, very big physically strong, organised through the spine of their team but so are we.

"We can mix it if we have to but also with the quality we have there.

"We have to pay attention to Bessbrook and give them the respect they deserve. They are a very good side. It's going to be a very good game."

For Kerr and his players, who had not trained collectively since March 7, there is a short turnaround to the game so the focus will be on getting the players in to the best condition possible for Monday.

"Even though it is only six days away we are glad to hear that the game is going ahead so well get ready for business now

"Its really going to be try and get as close to 100 per cent in a short period of time. It is going to be the same for the four teams that are in it.

"It is just about preparing to our maximum and making sure we are as close to our best that we can be in that period of time," added Kerr.
