Back in 20008, the NCU Senior Challenge Cup final was a tough battle, with CSNI wicket-keeper Rob Arthur giving his all in a tense, low scoring affair against Waringstown.

A half century from CSNI skipper Nigel Jones helped the Stormont side to 150 on a difficult track in damp conditions at The Meadow.

Waringstown appeared strong favourites but a batting collapse saw them in deep trouble before they rallied.

Luckily for CSNI they had an able deputy in the shape of Irish international Gary Wilson who had flown in from England for the game.

Rob Arthur had joined CSNI when he moved over to Belfast from London because of his work.

He had played for Durham and English Universities and knew Wilson from Surrey Seconds.

Arthur's parents were originally from Northern Ireland, with his dad going to Campbell College, and also had a connection to North.

There was a happy ending for all as three wickets apiece for Regan West and Wayne Horwood sealed a four-run win, with Gary Wilson taking the deciding catch.
