  1. That's all folks

    That's all from us on a day when Coleraine and Cliftonville set up a first ever Irish Cup final meeting between the sides.

    The Premiership teams proved too strong for their Championship opponents, with Coleraine seeing off the dogged challenge of Larne while Cliftonville steamrollered Loughgall 4-1, with four first half goals.

    In the Premiership, Warrenpoint Town took another big step towards securing survival with a 3-0 win over Dungannon Swifts.

    And the Premiership is back on the menu on Tuesday night with the top-two meeting between Crusaders and Coleraine at Seaview the undisputed pick of the games.

    Join us then, while we'll also be back for a full programme of games next Saturday.

    Bye for now.

    Quote Message: I'm delighted for everyone involved with the club, particularly the supporters. They have had a season where we have been up and down but now we have given them something to look forward to on the last day. The players started all guns blazing and we got our rewards in the first 20 seconds and that gave us momentum. It was all about the result and we're glad to be on the right side of it. from Barry Gray Cliftonville manager

    Quote Message: I was a little bit lost really. I just looked up and cut inside - luckily it went in. The feeling was incredible and it came at a good time. To be able to go over to my family after scoring was special. We got a few things sorted at half-time and came out well on the restart. from Lyndon Kane Coleraine scorer

    Quote Message: We were a wee bit nervy in the first half but more like ourselves in the second half. It's all about winning at this stage - it was never going to be free-flowing football.

    Cliftonville 4-1 Loughgall

    Quote Message: Loughgall responded creditably to conceding those early goals and got themselves back into the game but they shot themselves in the foot for the fourth goal.

  15. RED CARD

    Cliftonville 4-1 Loughgall

    Loughgall's miserable afternoon goes from bad to worse as Peter Campbell is shown a red card.

    It looked as though the striker was dismissed for dissent towards referee Keith Kennedy.

    Coleraine 2-1 Larne

    Coleraine go back in front just two minutes after Larne level as Gareth McConaghie heads home from a corner. It's another delicious inswinging delivery from Josh Carson with defender McConaghie getting a yard on his marker to power in from six yards.


    Cliftonville 4-1 Loughgall

    Loughgall keeper Gareth Buchanan produces a superb point-blank save to prevent a fifth Cliftonville goal and deny Gormley his hat-trick.

    Coleraine 1-1 Larne

    David McDaid heads in the Larne equaliser at the far post. David Scullion supplies a pinpoint cross to the backpost for his former Cliftonville team-mate to nod in from two yards.
