Pick of tomorrow’s action in the NW Premiership looks to be the clash at The Holm, where Donemana will be strengthened by the arrival of Zimbabwe professional Roy Kaia, who missed their thumping 106 runs victory over Bonds Glen.

Eglinton professional Mike Erlank wasted no time in showing how important he will be on his return to Woodvale Road, hitting 73 of his side’s 179 in their five wickets win over Ballyspallen.

The popular annual Charity Shield game between the Premiership and Senior Cup winners takes place on Sunday at Glendermott this year.

League winners Newbuildings needed only 22 overs to reach their rain reduced target of 174 against Strabane on the opening day but Fox Lodge lost by five five wickets after being were bowled out for 102 by St Johnston so skipper Aaron Heywood will be looking for a reaction, starting tomorrow at home to Brigade.
