Following last weekend’s postponements, the majority of First Round fixtures in the Terry Kelly Memorial Cup competition will get underway this Sunday.

The Campbell’s versus Ballymoor game was the only fixture to survive the inclement weather last Sunday and it was Campbell’s who progressed to the next round after an impressive 6-3 win.

This Sunday, Cup holders Top of the Hill Celtic will be fancied to make it into the second round with victory over Crescent.

And last season’s defeated finalists, Trojans will meet Derry City at Brandywell Stadium. Other notable ties include the meeting between Culmore and Culmore Colts at the Point. Culmore are pre-match favourites, however, Culmore Colts have caused a number of upsets in recent weeks and could spring a surprise on Sunday.

League leaders Park Bar will be confident of booking their place in the next round when they take on Brandywell Harps at the Showgrounds.

Fixtures - Park Bar v Brandywell Harps (Showgrounds); Derry City v Trojans (Brandywell Stadium); Culmore Colts v Culmore (Culmore); Top of the Hill Celtic v Crescent (Lisnagelvin 2); Phoenix v Tristar (St Columb’s No3); Lisahally v Oxford United Stars (Strathfoyle).
