Portadown BBOB secured a spot in the Foster Cup final with last-four glory against Keady Celtic.

The 2-1 success arrived thanks to Matthew Donaldson and Adam Hobson in the thrilling knockout clash.

Hobson capped a driving run into the box with a pass which Donaldson converted to break the deadlock.

David Marsden proved sharp between the posts, with chances to increase the lead arriving for Sam Thornbury, Lee Bonis, Daniel Macartney and David Irwin across the semi-final.

Hobson increased the lead and BBOB worked hard to survive a Keady goal, with the hosts down to 10 men at the final whistle.

BBOB will meet Donaghmore in the showpiece final, with all support welcome.
