WHITE HORSE T20 LINE-UPS DECIDED THIS WEEKEND

The Group stages of this season’s White Horse T20 competition will be concluded on Thursday night with the semi-finalists for the subsequent cup competitions confirmed following those games.

Ardmore lead Group A by 20 points from Coleraine and the Bleachgreen side complete this phase at home to St Johnston, while the Bannsiders finish off away at Bready who will play in the Sperrin Springs Cup.

Killyclooney and Eglinton will fight out the top two places in Group B- the leaders taking on Glendermott who are currently third while the villagers are at Bonds Glen.

Newbuildings host Strabane in Group C- the winners of that one will claim top spot with the unbeaten Foyleview team currently 19 points clear of their rivals.

Brigade have already qualified in top spot from Group D with Fox Lodge, their opponents this week, finishing second and booking their place in the Eric Cooke Cup.

The focus then switches to the Long’s SuperValu league on Saturday where the game of the day looks to be the local derby between surprise leaders Killyclooney and Donemana in sixth.

‘Clooney have been in scintillating form on the back of Blayde Capell’s record-smashing efforts to date and in all honesty, this is probably the first time they’ll have hosted their neighbours without being behind the sofa.

The home side may well have done enough already to book their top 8 place ahead of next year, but even so, they’re still slight underdogs here.

Second placed Bready will be red-hot favourites to keep the pressure on as they travel to Ballyspallen while Brigade are also on the road and they too will be expected to claim the points at Bonds Glen.

Ardmore have quietly gone about their business having won five of their six so far and they head to Strabane Park on Saturday.

Six weeks ago this would have been a really interesting game, however the Red Caps have been in free-fall of late and have lost their last four league games. They’re more than capable of bouncing back at any time of course, but this looks a tall order on current form.

It’s Fox Lodge’s turn to sit out this Saturday giving the likes of Donemana, Coleraine and Newbuildings to close in- the current champions with a home game against St Johnston ahead of them.

It’s an ideal chance for the cup finalists to move up the table and that’s also very much the case for Eglinton as well, after an indifferent start from them.

You’d have to think that nothing other than a win at Burndennett will do for the villagers.

Glendermott got their first points on the board last time with a win at home to Burndennett.

The Rectory side are on their travels to Coleraine on Saturday- a venue where they’ve already recorded a senior cup win this season- but the home side will be desperate to keep their place in the top half of the table.
