HOLDERS Fanad United have been handed a mouth-watering four team grou for the defence of their Donegal News Ulster Senior League Cup.
Ollie Horgan’s side have been drawn in Group B alongside two of their old adversaries, Letterkenny Rovers and Swilly Rovers. Buncrana Hearts make up that group.
Fanad won the 2011 competition thanks to a 2-1 win over Cockhill Celtic last August at Leckview Park. Goals by Shaun McElwaine and PJ Hagan fired them to glory in the final.
