The North West has recently been helping Sion Mills, their most decorated club, celebrate their 150th anniversary however this Saturday afternoon a Championship club at the other end of the age spectrum will be going into the biggest game of their short history. At 120 years younger than Sion, Killyclooney will this weekend take on Woodvale for a place in the final of the 2014 National Cup.

The Ballygomartin Road side will head over the Glenshane on the back of a decent season so far- one of a clutch of clubs within touching distance of second place in Section 1. They bring a few players capable of taking a hand in the outcome too, including Sam Fleming, Paul Robinson, Marty McKeown and of course the prolific Sujit Khalbor, however this represents their toughest task in the competition by some way. The visitors have been handed two "walk-overs" in the tournament so far and have beaten only Laois to make it to the semi-finals.

Mark Gordon's side are totally unrecognisable from the one that won just once in the league in two years up to 2013 and have taken the league by storm in comparison this time, behind only Glendermott in the promotion race thus far. Recent form may well be a concern for the Killyclooney all-rounder, but with himself, Alan Colhoun, James Colhoun and Richard McMorris all in good form this summer you can expect the North West side to give this a real go.

There is little doubt that this represents their biggest game since joining the North West league in 1984 however the home side will be hoping that they can make it through to an even bigger one in four weeks time. The rest of the region will no doubt be behind them as they attempt to do so.
