Silverwood United will go in front of the Irish Football Association on June 12 in a case relating to the Alexandra Cup.

The April 26 semi-final between Silverwood and Hill Street was abandoned in the second half with the scoreline 4-0 to the latter side.

“Our ruling found Silverwood responsible for the abandonment of the semi-final but they have lodged an appeal against that decision with the Irish Football Association,” said the Mid-Ulster Football League’s Paul Suckling.

“That appeal date has been set as June 12.

“The IFA decision will determine the next step but any final, if played, will now take place next season.”

Ballyoran defeated Lurgan Institute in the other semi-final.
