Glenavon U18 and Dungannon Swifts U18 will face off in the Youth Cup final, sponsored by Dale Farm Protein Milk, at Windsor Park on Wednesday 4 May. The game is set to kick off at 7:45pm.
The Glenavon U18s side go into the game following a very convincing 5-1 win over Glentoran Colts at Crewe Park in the semi-final earlier this year.
Glenavon FC’s Head of Youth Development Chris Chambers has shared his delight in the boys’ achievement, saying:
“We are very proud to have made the final of the Harry Cavan Cup. It’s great to see two local teams reach the final and for me it’s no surprise as I see how much both clubs put into youth development and coaching.
“Over 90% of the players eligible to play have came through our Development Phase into our NIFL Phase which is a great testament to the work our coaches and players have done during their time in our Academy.
“We hope the players and coaches can use this opportunity to gain vital experience that will help them progress as footballers and coaches. The messages and support the young players have received has been excellent, it would be great to see everyone come out and support the team in the final, hopefully we will be celebrating at the end of the game.”
We wish the lads all the best on the big day!
