The draw for the opening rounds of the Amateur League’s Clarence Cup has been made.
While there tends to be more prestige attached to the Border Cup, the Clarence is arguably harder to win. It’s the equivalent of FA Cup in Amateur League circles.
Wellington Rec and Larne Tech face Junior opposition. Johnny Hastings’ Tech side will travel to Bangor YM, while Rec have been handed a home draw against Carnmoney’s 4th Newtownabbey.
Jamie McGarel’s Newington Rangers are away to Dromore Amateurs. Stephen Donald’s Islandmagee have been granted a first-round bye, but have been paired with Malachians in round two.
Round-one ties are to be played on or before Dec. 6.
