Jonathan Beukes (Captain) - Left hand bat and right hand off spin. First senior cup final: Excellent attacking left hander and more than useful with the ball.

Ciaran Patton (Vice Captain) - Left hand bat and right hand medium pace. Third senior Cup Final. Has opened the bowling recently with much success will probably be first change if everyone is fit.

Mark Gillespie - Left hand bat and right hand leg spinner. This is Mark's fifth senior cup final. Having a tremendous season with both bat and ball should have got more Irish Caps.

Peter Gillespie - Right hand bat and right hand medium/fast bowler. Fourth cup final appearance. With brother Mark he will play a big part if the trophy is to go to Strabane.

Kevin Martin - Left hand opening bat. This is Kevin's first senior cup final; he has been among the runs in recent games - formerly played for Ardmore.

Ryan Gallagher - Right hand opening bat and right hand off spinner. First senior cup final, has relished the role of opening the innings - good stroke player.

Paul McNamee - Wicketkeeper and right hand bat. Four senior cup appearances. Loads of experience and a great team player.

Martin Deans - The 33-year-old left hand bat and right hand opening bowler. This will be Martin's fourth senior cup final appearance. Has been dogged by injury for a lot of the season but hopes to make the big one.

Phil Eaglestone - Left hand opening bowler and left hand bat. Second cup final appearance. Has represented Ireland - another who has missed a number of games through injury.

Tommy Barr - Right hand bat and right hand off spin. Tommy has been twelfth man twice before at senior cup finals with Strabane. Has come on leaps and bounds this season and is now a regular in the side.

Andrew Lynch - Right hand bat and right hand medium pace. First senior cup appearance. Another young player who is one to note for the future.

Barry Scott - The 24-year-old right hand batsman and right hand medium pace bowler. First cup final appearance. Likes to play his shots and useful with the ball.

John Gillespie - Right hand batsman. Eighth cup final appearance. A real true club man who has been there and done it.

Gary Gillespie - Right hand bat. First senior cup final appearance. Yet another one for the future won't let anyone down if selected.

Manu Sharma - Right hand batsman. First senior cup final appearance. Has shown some promise when used this season but may have to sit this one out.

Terence Patton Senior (Scorer) - After a magnificent playing career now doing an important job.
