THIS season’s Blue Riband Cup Final in the Saturday Morning League, will be a battle of the “Swifts,” with Phoenix and Creggan emerging from last weekend’s semi-final ties.

Phoenix defeated Westbank United 3-1, a result which saw Westbank end the season in frustrating fashion having also lost out in the race for the league title to last weekend’s winners.

In the second semi-final, Creggan Swifts were also forced to come from behind to defeat Brandywell Celtic 3-1, and an exciting final is anticipated.
