SEMI-FINAL SHOWDOWNS in the Ennis Carpets Clare Cup are to take place next weekend.

Reigning champions Avenue Utd take on Fairgreen Celtic on Saturday (May 6th) with Lifford FC facing off with Tulla Utd on Sunday (May 7th).

Frank Healy Park is confirmed as the venue for both semi-finals. Saturday’s tie kicks off at 5:30pm while the Sunday showdown as an 11am start, Pa Gleeson and Paudie Hayes have been appointed as the respective referees.

David Russell’s Avenue are favourites to retain the Cup but will face off with Fair Green for the first time, a club that will feel they have nothing to lose and are buoyant from their Division 3 success.

Lifford who reached the penultimate stage last year only to lose to Newmarket Celtic from a Stephen Kelly header in extra time. Adrian Walsh’s charges were victorious in the Hugh Kelly Cup final while Mike Moloney’s Tulla Utd have forged a strong Cup run and will look to end their season on a high.
