Bready are quietly going about their business, and their win at home to St Johnston keeps them in Brigade’s slipstream as the table starts to take shape.

Kyle Magee was the match winner with an unbeaten 72, and there are signs that the former Irish youth international is settling at his new club after moving from Brigade.

“It was good to get another win under the belt on Saturday to continue our decent form in the league so far this season,” said Magee.

“Getting a few runs personally was nice to help us over the line. As a team everyone’s playing their role well and chipping in which is key for us to keep pushing on. So far I’ve settled in well at the club and I’m enjoying my time at Bready.”

Magee has scored 244 runs at just over 34, and one of the main reasons for moving – the chance to bowl regularly – has seen him pick up nine wickets. You get the feeling that Bready will have a big say in the destiny of the title come September.
