Tonight’s Top Four Cup showpiece brings D&D campaign to a close

Fresh from their McAlinden Cup victory last week Top of the Hill Celtic will meet Terry Kelly Cup champions, Brandywell Harps in tonight’s Top Four Cup Final as both teams seek to complete a cup ‘double’.

The Top Four Cup Final will bring to an end the 2013/14 Derry & District F.A. season and it promises to be a highly entertaining encounter at Brandywell Stadium. (Kick-off 7p.m.)

Top of the Hill Celtic won the league’s Blue Riband Cup last Sunday morning at Brandywell with a last gasp winner against Trojans.

The Waterside’s Cup kingpins then faced a tricky semi-final match against Culmore in the Top Four Cup but emerged convincing winners, claiming a 5-1 win.

Top of the Hill Celtic eased into their second final of the season with this straight-forward win in a one-sided encounter against Culmore.

The Waterside men took the lead early on through the in-form Darren Harkin and the home side made it 2-0 soon afterwards when Dee McGee scored from the edge of the penalty box.

To their credit, Culmore battled hard and scored either side of half-time to bring the sides level.

It was Celtic who eased into a comfortable lead after this, however, and Colin Murray bagged a brace before Maurice Curtis finished the scoring as Celtic moved into another final.
