THE first finalist in this year’s Ulster Bank Schools Cup will be decided today, weather permitting, when BRA take on RBAI at the Castle Grounds (3.30pm).

BRA joined their Belfast rivals in the semi-final with a 17 runs victory away to Limavady Grammar, bowling out their hosts for 98.

Foyle College beat Wallace High on Monday by nine wickets in the third quarter-final and they will have home advantage in the semi-final against Methodist College, who beat Strabane Academy 2-0 in a bowl-out on Tuesday.

This Friday, the original date for the cup final, has now been put back to Friday week (June 21), still at Moylena.

Meanwhile, following last week’s Schools Trial, the selectors have included six players who were not available, including captain Marcus Poskitt, to face MCC in the annual game at Osborne Park next Tuesday (11.30am).

Joining Poskitt in the team are Matthew Hutchinson, also from Coleraine Grammar plus Rhys Logue, Kyle Magee, Reece Malone and Adam Reid.
