All seven scheduled matches in the North West Premiership will have to be replayed after another wet Saturday in the region.

The match between Ardmore and Bonds Glen was called off as a mark of respect due to the death of former Bonds Glen player Norman Hamilton.

Three matches did manage to get underway in less than ideal circumstances, but despite their valiant efforts, they only managed a combined 31 overs.

17 of those were at Bready, where Strabane got off to a flier with skipper Nasir Nawaz hit 7 fours and a six in his 47 from 37 balls, sharing an opening stand of 72 with Kevin Gallagher (22).

Ian Young (2-14) broke that partnership and with the Red Caps on 85 for 3, play was abandoned.

Just up the road at Burndennett, only four overs were posssible with Marty Mehaffey unbeaten on 24 as the hosts reached 32 without loss against Newbuildings before it too was abandoned.

At Beechgrove, Brigade's Faughan Valley Cup dress rehearsal against Killyclooney lasted 10 overs before the weather won the day.

Brigade were on 52 for 2, with Ifty Hussain hitting 8 boundaries in his rapid 36 not out from 21 deliveries.

There are two rearranged Premiership matches scheduled for Sunday: Ballyspallen v Newbuildings and Strabane v Fox Lodge, as well as the aforementioned Faughan Valley Cup final.
