Belfast Royal Academy have received a tough draw in their bid for a hat-trick of titles in the Ulster Bank Schools Cricket Cup.
Although they received a first round bye they will travel to either Foyle College or Regent House in the second round. Last year’s runners-up RBAI were also one of seven sides to receive a free passage to the second round and they will play either Limavady Grammar School or Belfast High School.
