Holders Linfield have been drawn to face last season's beaten finalists Crusaders in the quarter-finals of the County Antrim Shield.

The Blues won a penalty shoot-out after the decider ended in a goal-less draw at the Ballymena Showgrounds in March.

Cliftonville will host Ballymena United at Solitude, Glentoran are at home to Bangor and Ards will host Newington YC.

All four matches are scheduled to be played on Tuesday 28 October, with the semi-finals in early December.
