Both sides sit mid-table in section 1 of the U16 league, Sean Stinsons on 8 points from 9 starts while Glenravel are just a place behind them on 6 points from 8 starts when the league tables were published last week so little appears to separate them on league form.

In the Cup final, set for All Saints Ballymena on Sunday at 11.00am, Con Magees Glenravel take on Sean Stinsons. Aldergrove battled superbly in the closing stages and had chances at the death to draw the match but Stinsons and midfielder Oisin Doherty in particular turned the screw when it mattered the most. The scores were tied on eight separate occasions in an intense but highly skilful game of football.

However Moneyglass midfielder McErlain pointed from a 45 for the final score of the game to seal victory for them on the narrowest of margins. Glenravels Sean McKay reduced the deficit to two, eight minutes from time, but Patrick McCormick, who was having a very impressive performance on the forty, restored the home sides three point advantage on 24 mins. The soft underfoot conditions were starting to take their toll and both teams emptied their bench for the final 10 minutes of the game to try and inject some impetus through fresh legs. The substitutions seemed to work better for the visitors who were starting to get back on top and when man of the match Eoin Hynds goaled to level the game with 4 mins left on the clock an upset looked on the cards. Glenravels hopes were dented when Josh McKeown received a black card from referee Vincent Boyle in the middle of that scoring spree.

Played in bright sunshine, Moneyglass were strong favourites to dampen the spirits of the newly promoted Glensmen and started the game well only to be denied by some last gasp defending from the opposition. It was however Glenravel who registered the first score, coming from the majestic left boot of minor footballer Eoin Hynds who found room on the 40 and arrowed over the sticks after two mins. That was followed by a couple of points from Moneyglass when midfielder Dermot McErlain, playing in a very forward position, picked off a nice point from a tight angle and Colum Duffin added one soon afterwards. Glenravels Josh McKeown equalised from play on eight minutes and Hynds again put Glenravel into the lead two minutes later with another long ranger from play.

For All Saints centre half back Conall ONeill; both Matthew Corr and Jake White at midfield; and Oisin Connolly were best on the night but much may ride on whether Conor Stewart will be available for selection. The All Saints bench held their breath and Aidan Scullion held his nerve scoring against Dunloy goalkeeper Paudie McGilligan (who had looked unbeatable all evening), and kept his side in the game at times, to go a point up, This goal lifted the performance of All Saints and although Dunloy tried their best to come back, the Slemish Park side pulled away in the closing minutes to win by five. Spurred on by this success Dunloy took the lead in the second half and still led the contest with 10 minutes remaining but the visitors finally regained the initiative and strong pressure resulted in them gaining a penalty, after a foul on Saints full-forward Conor ORawe. The Shield final throws together another interesting pairing and looks equally hard to call. Dunloy weathered the early storm however and ever so slowly began to get a foothold in proceedings, finding the All Saints net twice to leave it level at half time 2-01 to 0-07.
