All set for an intriguing Champions League Final on Saturday

The first of this season's Champions League Finals in the Donegal Schoolboys League takes place this Saturday morning in Letterkenny.
The decider is at U-12 level and is an all-East Donegal clash between Cappry Rovers and Fintown Harps.
The teams finished first and second respectively in their division.
The Ballybofey outfit will start as favourites as they defeated Fintown in both league meetings, although they were close affairs.
On their way to the final, Cappry defeated Glenea United 3-2 away in the quarter-final and were one minute from going out of the semi-final away to Keadue Rovers only for an Andrew Murray last minute equalizer. They went on to win on penalties.
Fintown didn't get it easy either as they also scored the only goal of the game in the last minute of their quarter-final clash via a Luke McGlynn penalty to get past Milford United.
Another narrow 1-0 victory over Bonagee United, thanks to a Jamie O'Donnell goal put them through to meet Cappry Rovers.
These are two very good teams so a good battle should prevail at Leckview Park with kick off at 11.30am.
East Donegal clubs dominate the final stages of competition at U-14 and U-16 level. There are semi-finals in both age-groups this weekend with Swilly Rovers, Letterkenny Rovers and Kilmacrennan Celtic all still involved at both age levels.
