Windmill Stars will meet Orchard City in the final of the Bessbrook Cup after both teams secured semi-final wins at Derrylecky on Saturday.

Kevin O’Rourke almost sent the game into extra time when in the final minute he broke through on goal to threaten ‘keeper Joe Price but narrowly shot wide.

Windmill Stars cruised into the final as strikes from Gareth White and Josh McKeown sent them on their way to a 5-1 victory over Newry Celtic.
