Many commentators had expected the game to result in a facile victory for the Derry and Ulster Champions, but the London-based side made a fight of it in spite of losing Peader Stack to a second yellow card in the first half.

Collie Devlin netted the opening goal for Ballinderry as the visitors went in 1-5 to 0-1 ahead at the break, and Daniel McKinless adding a second goal after the break.

Devlin added his second goal of the afternoon soon after, before Stephen Brown hauled Kingdom Kerry Gaels back into it with an opportunistic goal.

The midfielder was quickest to react after Shamrocks keeper Michael Conlon had saved an initial shot, turning it in for his sides first three-pointer.

A late penalty converted by Kyle Holland left the visitors trailing by just three points in the closing stages, but late points from Conor Nevin and Fintan Bell ended the fightback and sealed a 3-7 to 2-5 victory.

Ballinderry now progress to face Leinster and Dublin Champions St Vincents in the semi-finals in February.
