Two big cup finals this weekend X

Two youth cup finals take place this coming weekend as the 2015/16 Donegal Youth League nears to its conclusion.

On Friday evening, league winners Drumkeen United take on Swilly Rovers in the Colin Breslin Memorial Youth Cup final and on Saturday, Letterkenny Rovers play Gweedore Celtic in the John Gorey Curran Cup Final.

Both games will be played at Diamond Park, Ballyare.

On Saturday, Gweedore Celtic and Letterkenny Rovers played out a dress rehearsal for this weekend's Gorey Curran Cup final with a semi final tie in the Ulster Youth Cup.

Rovers won 1-0 with a late goal from Conor O'Donnell enough to give Letterkenny a dramatic victory.

In the other semi final Drumkeen United were defeated by Monaghan outfit Blayney Rovers in a penalty shoot-out.

It was a disappointing day for Drumkeen who at one stage looked to be on their way to the decider when they led 2-0 with goals from Darren Bonner and Eoghan Kennedy.

However, Blayney Rovers hit back and forced the game to penalties where they got the better of the St. Patrick's Park side.
