AHOGHILL Thistle Development and Belfast Athletic will meet in the final of the Linda Welshman Memorial Cup after them winning their semi-finals games on Saturday.
The Intermediate Cup games are at a standstill due to an appeal from Desertmartin FC to the IFA against a decision of the League Committee who ruled Desertmartin had played a player in January who was registered prior to the Registration Window opening on January 1st 2022.
The destination of the Intermediate Division Title is also in doubt at present. Belfast Celtic have lodged an appeal to the IFA against the League Committee ruling that Belfast Celtic forfeit all games a player who the Committee claim was a registered Cliftonville FC and not Belfast Celtic who had also registered the player.
