There’s the possibility of a fourth consecutive Danske Bank NW Senior Cup final between Donemana and Brigade after the two sides were kept apart in the semi-final draw.

Donemana, winners of the competition for the past three seasons, have home advantage over Coleraine, who they have beaten in each of the last two years.

Coleraine, who won the competition for the only time 29 years ago against Strabane in 1986, will be hoping it’s a case of third time lucky.

Brigade - beaten by Donemana in the last three finals - will be hoping to win the trophy they last won in 2010. They will take on Eglinton at Beechgrove.

The Villagers needed a last wicket stand of 36 between Simon Olphert and Ross Allen to overcome Championship side Drummond on Saturday in the quarter-final. Eglinton last won the famous trophy back in 2006.

The Donemana versus Coleraine tie will take place on Saturday June 27, while the Brigade versus Eglinton decider will be on Sunday June 28.
