The draw's been made for the first and second rounds of the Toals County Antrim Shield.

In round one, holders Crusaders will face Knockbreda with last year's beaten finalists Ballymena taking on Harland and Wolff Welders.

There's also an east Antrim derby, Carrick against Larne. 

Linfield will play PSNI, a team they drew 1-1 with in a friendly at Newforge last night.

The second round draw's also been made and if the teams get through there would be Crues against Cliftonville and Blues against the Glens derby games in the last eight. 

Details for the Ballymena-Welders tie have yet to be confirmed.
