The draw for the Quarter-Finals of the Ulster Bank Schools' Cup has been made, with a number of mouth watering clashes down for decision.

None more so that of the holders BRA who entertain Foyle College, who have an excellent history in the competition.

Francis Collins' excellent all-round performance saw him top score with 54 and take three wickets to lead his BRA side to a 73 run win over Wallace HS.

Foyle were indebted to their captain Andrew Austin whose unbeaten 61 guided them to a seven wicket win over Methody.

Limavady GS are handed a home tie with RBAI in what is sure to be a difficult task for the NW side.

Eglinton left-arm spinner Josh Martin had a six wicket haul in their emphatic 99 run win over Strabane Academy.

RBAI romped home in their second round tie against Regent as Matthew Lightbody hit 66 in their total of 203 for 5. In reply Regent could only muster 65.

The most remarkable performance of the round came in Down HS three run win over Belfast HS. With Belfast needing just 9 runs with 7 wickets in hand, Andrew McGavera took 6 wickets for just one in a superb spell to complete an incredible turnaround.

Their reward is a home tie with Grosvenor GS, who edged out Sullivan Upper by two wickets in a tense encounter, thanks to Stuart Nelson's unbeaten 65.

Ballymena Academy have home advantage over Campbell College in the final tie of the round.

John Glass scored 54 and took three wickets as Ballymena beat Coleraine GS by 48 runs - Joel Gocher also picked up 4 for 10 in the 48 run win.

It was an altogether much tighter affair for Campbell, who saw off  Ballyclare  HS by three runs in a dramatic last over finale.

All the quarter-final ties have to take place before May 21. The draw in full is as follows:


  • Ballymena Academy v Campbell College
  • Belfast Royal Academy v Foyle College
  • Down HS v Grosvenor GS
  • Limavady GS v RBAI
