Score: 0 - 1
It was to be a happy return to the venue of last year's final as holders Trim Celtic progressed to the next round of the Challenge Cup with victory over Boyne Harps. The winning goal came from the boot of James Goggins as he rifled home a half volley from the edge of the box after Brian Faulkner's through ball. Celtic had chances to go further ahead but Faulkner was denied by the Boyne keeper. With moments remaining Harps almost forced a draw but Celtic keeper Iain Telford superbly saved.
