Senior Cup returns ‘Holm’

THE Northern Bank Senior Cup is back at the Holm again after Donemana won a long drawn out battle with Brigade at Magheramason that was finally resolved at 9 o’clock on Monday night.

There was nothing between them after Friday’s first innings but it was nearly 5 o’clock on Saturday before play restarted when a superb spell of bowling from James and Junior McBrine turned the match Donemana’s way.

Frustratingly for the Tyrone side they had knocked off 43 of the 104 runs required to lift the cup when bad light forced the teams off and it was worse again on Sunday when no play at all was possible.

That meant they had to come back again on Monday night and despite conditions being far from ideal the umpires and captains agreed to try to get the match finished.
