NW CRICKET FINAL: Meet the men from Donemana Cricket Club
Donemana are gearing up for another Bank of Ireland Senior Cup Final.
The majority of the squad has been there and done it.
Ricky-Lee Dougherty (captain, wicketkeeper) - In his first season as captain Ricky-Lee has done a great job so far and has maintained the Clubs remarkable record in this competition by reaching another final.
There are few better, if any, behind the stumps and when he clicks with the bat he can really accelerate the run-rate.
He would love to lift the senior cup in his first season as skipper.
Tom Riddles - Tom is an important man at the top of the Donemana innings and if he can get going here and bat long, it could set the holm men up for a big score. Tom is a fantastic fielder with a great set of hands.
Gary McClintock - An important all-rounder who will look to make a big impact in the final. With the bat especially, Gary makes scoring runs look so easy at times. A superb player who has matured so well over the past few seasons.
Andy McBrine - The Irish international particularly enjoys the big occasions as his record in previous cup finals prove and expect this one to be no different.
He will be a key man again, a superb all-rounder who brings so much to the side.
Andrew Riddles - ‘Aggie’ has been a wonderful addition to this already talented side. His innings in the semi-final showed just what he’s all about, combining his talented ability an his gutsy never say die attitude. Made for the big occasion.
Jan Frylinck - In his second season at the Holm and Jan has been fantastic. Has continued his excellent bowling form from last year and has looked different class with the bat this season. Great fielder, a complete all-rounder.
William McClintock - Just like his twin brother, William is a very important all-rounder and can be a dangerous man with bat and ball. His innings in the semi-final when his side were in trouble showed great maturity, and with his ability is capable of repeating that in the final.
Dwayne McGerrigle - Returned to regular first team action this season, Dwayne is a match winner on his day. A devastating hitter of the ball, great to watch when he’s in full swing. An experienced campaigner and a safe pair of hands.
Ritchie McBrine - Ritchie has a knack of taking big wickets early in the game. An important part of Donemana’s bowling attack, but also a real danger with the bat, can score runs for fun at an alarming rate.
William McBrine - William, like the twins is only 19 years of age and will be playing in his fifth consecutive Senior Cup Final. A very good off-spinner and excellent fielder who is more than useful with the bat. Hoping for his fifth winners medal.
Jordan McGonigle - The most experienced player in the side who still loves his cricket, excels in the big games, excellent spin bowler who is also more than a useful batsman, the young players in the side look up to him for guidance.
Kyle Dougherty - Another youngster with great all-round ability. His bowling especially with subtle changes of pace makes him a real handful. Played in last years final and has always been involved in the squad in previous finals.
