Bonagee United’s passage back to the FAI Senior Cup could hardly be tougher.

Jason Gibson’s side, who were up against League of Ireland Premier Division side Shelbourne on Friday night at Dry Arch Park, begin their FAI Intermediate Cup assault with an away draw at Letterkenny Rovers.

Bonagee lost out 4-0 to Damien Duff’s Shelbourne having reached the quarter-finals of last season’s Intermediate Cup - where they were beaten 1-0 by Rockmount in Cork.

The Intermediate quarter-finalists and Junior Cup semi-finalists receive a passage into the Senior Cup.

Bonagee hosted a crowd of around 1,200 on Friday night for the biggest game in the club’s history.

Only one team from the Ulster Senior League will go through to the national stages of this season’s Intermediate Cup.

Letterkenny are due to welcome Bonagee to Leckview Park on the weekend ending September 11.

The winners of that tie will be at home to Cockhill Celtic on the weekend of October 16.
