Ballyclare Comrades have been handed a home draw against Bangor in the last eight of the Steel and Sons Cup.

The two sides, who last locked horns in knockout competition in last year’s Irish Cup, will meet each other at Dixon Park on October 19.

“There will be no easy matches at the quarter-final stage,” said Hill, “I am just pleased to have a home draw, irrespective of the opposition.”

Meanwhile, the Comrades Reserves won 5-1 away to Cookstown Olympic in the Ballymena and Provincial League’s Junior Division 1.
