Loughgall and Lurgan Celtic for Christmas cracker!

LOUGHGALL will be hoping for some revenge as they prepare to face Lurgan Celtic in the Bob Radcliffe Cup Final on Boxing Day at Lakeview Park.

A repeat of last year’s final showpiece, the kick-off is at 11am. The Villagers went down 1-0 to Celtic in the 2011 final and will be hoping to avoid another shock defeat this Wednesday.

It will be manager Colin Malone’s fourth consecutive final in the Bob Radcliffe Cup, having guided his Banbridge Town side to the final in 2009 and 2010.

He brought Loughgall to the final stage last year and he once again guided the Villagers to the final this year after a penalty shoot-out victory over Banbridge in the semi-final.

Meanwhile, games for Portadown and Glenavon due to take place this afternoon have now been rescheduled.

Five of Saturday’s Irish Premiership matches had to be postponed because of waterlogged pitches.

Glenavon had been due to travel to Stangmore Park to take on Dungannon Swifts, while Portadown were to face Lisburn Distillery.

The matches called off have now been rearranged for Tuesday,  January 15.
