Eglinton will have home advantage in the Faughan Valley T20 Cup final when they take on Brigade in the decider this coming Sunday, July 25th.

The villagers have been in excellent form this season and have won Group B in the 40-overs league.

Andy Millar captains the side and is joined by his brothers Robbie and Jamie. He also has the Averill brothers Mark and Craig, as well as the Dunn cousins, Stephen and Simon.

Richard 'Fish' Wylie has enjoyed something of a renaissance since he came back into the side, while the depth of their squad has been shown by a number of players chipping in with crucial contributions.

Wicket-keeper and opening batsman Tommy Orr has scored heavily recently, none more so than his match-winning century in their senior cup win at Burndennett.


Brigade by their high standards have endured a lean season, but their cup pedigree is undisputed and they will be keen to capture silverware in their Beechgrove centenary year.

Captain Andy Britton will be urging his side to lift their game and the region's leading wicket taker Ross Allen could play a pivotal role against his former side.

Another player formerly with Eglinton, Adam McDaid, top scored in their loss to Glendermott last week, while there were also half centuries for Kyle Magee and DD Barr.

If opener David Murdock can fire, then Brigade would be in a strong position, but too often their top order has let them down.

In Ryan Macbeth, Ryan Barr and Ifty Hussain they have proven quality and it should be an intriguing contest between two evenly matched sides.

Play gets under way at 2pm and there will be a collection for the Derry Midweek Charities.
