It's a huge weekend for Brigade, as the league leaders face Ardmore in the Premiership, before switching their attention to cup matters and a semi-final at Eglinton.

The Beechgrove side have been in decent form, a fact acknowledged by skipper Andy Britton.

"It’s been a good season for us so far with it all coming together," said Britton.

"Everyone has been contributing at different times with performances right throughout the squad.

"The new players have been a great addition, settling in quickly. Cameron Melly’s power hitting in the middle-order has been a revelation and that hundred against Donemana was a bit special.

"Young Scott Macbeth has done really well too with his all-round game. The attack has a nice balance now and we feel we have most options covered.

"We are aware it’s a massive weekend for us and it will be tough against Ardmore and at Eglinton. Both have produced good displays at times this season.

"We are at full strength for the matches with no injury worries. I’m happy with our form and if we play to our potential then I’m hopeful of getting the results we need."

They won't have Hayden Melly in their ranks just yet, with the younger brother of Cameron not expected to arrive at Beechgrove just yet.
