The Armagh kingpins saw off a determined challenge from Tyrone side Errigal Ciaran in their game at Clones, while Kilcoo claimed a shock two-point victory over Antrim champions St Gall's.

Cross, who are defending the provincial crown they have held for the past two years, were given a stern examination by an Errigal Ciaran side hoping to book their place in the Ulster decider for the first time since they last claimed the Seamus McFerran Cup back in 2002.

The Tyrone Champions led by a point at half-time, but Cross's experience at this level in recent years eventually saw them seal a 2-10 to 0-10 victory.

In the other game, played at the Athletic Grounds in Armagh, Kilcoo went up against a highly-fancied St Gall's side were widely tipped to make the final from the beginning of the provincial series.

However, the Mourne side put in a spirited display to match their illustrious counterparts, and two late points saw them seal a memorable victory to claim their place in the Ulster final for the first time in their history.

Ulster Senior Club Football Championship semi-final results:

Crossmaglen Rangers 2-10 - 0-10 Errigal Ciaran

Kilcoo 1-9 - 0-10 St Gall's
