A derby Towns’ Cup final between Enniskillen and Clogher Valley is still a possibility after the sides were kept apart in the draw for the semi-finals of the competition.

Willie Gibson’s Skins side have been paired an Armagh 2nd XV who have already dispatched both Ballyclare and Omagh so far in the competition while Clogher Valley will face the winner of the Carrickfergus v Ballynahinch quarter-final.

Skins coach Gibson admits that at this stage of the competition all games are going to be tough although he is delighted that they will have home advantage for their semi-final tie.

“There is no easy games at this stage so it doesn’t really matter who you get as long as you are at home so we’re delighted with a home draw.

“Armagh though are going to be a good enough side. Their 1st XV is going well so you would expect that their 2nd XV will be going well as well,” he commented.

Clogher Valley Head Coach Davy Black must wait to find out who their opposition is going to be on March 25 but regardless of who it is, he is expecting a difficult game.

“You are at the last four stage of the Towns’ Cup so it is going to be tough no matter who comes through. Ideally, we would have liked to have had a home draw but it is what it is. It’s nice to have made it through to the semi-finals but as with all cup competitions, you ultimately want to go on and win it,” said Black.

However, both Black and Gibson stress that the semi-final will now take a backseat as they focus back on the league.

“The cup will now be put to one side and our whole focus in on the league. We have a massive game away from home against Cooke this week and it is more important than the cup. I always say that the league is your bread and butter and we want to get to safety in the division,” said Black.

For Gibson, the focus is on trying to make an impression at the other end of the Championship One table.

“We’ll forget about the Towns’ Cup for now as we have some big league games before that. We want to try and get into the top four and to do that we will need three bonus point wins so that is a great challenge for the boys. We are back to Ards this week and it will be another tough game,” he added.
