Thrilling T20 Finals Day in store on Sunday
There are a couple of mouth-watering finals in store this Sunday as the North West T20 cups are decided at Strabane Park.
Proceedings get under way at 12 noon with the Eric Cooke Cup final between Ardmore and Fox Lodge. The Bleachgreen side have been in the thick of the action all summer long, and indeed it looks like being a telling weekend for them as they play leaders Burndennett in a crunch league game just 24 hours earlier.
A win there would send Peter Harrigan’s men into Sunday’s contest with confidence sky high and the prospect of the in-form Peet Pienaar getting among the runs, or Decker Curry on the scent of that magical century is likely to draw a decent crowd.
The Foxies will be no back number themselves and although it has been an in and out year for them, Aaron Heywood’s side would mind being cast as underdogs one bit.
The second of Sunday’s finals is a genuine heavyweight clash as Brigade take on Donemana. These two also meet in the league on Saturday at the Holm where a win for Andy Britton’s team would seal the title race.
A win for Brigade in both games would see them complete a rare domestic quadruple of trophies, but you can bet your bottom dollar that Andrew Riddles’ team will be doing everything in their power to prevent that.
It looks set to be a superb day of cricket at the Park where admission is £5 (£3 concessionary) with all proceeds going to the Derry Midweek’s Charity Fund.
