The McBrine twins, Junior and James, may have both missed their first Senior Cup final - they are 51 after all - but they are sure to be the star attractions at Donemana this weekend when they line out in the Qualifying One decider against holders Eglinton II, starting on Friday.

Junior hit 86 not out and James made 42 in Donemana's 205 for six in Saturday's delayed semi-final against Bready II who, despite a century from Colin Spence, were dismissed for 189, mainly due to Ross Campbell, who took five for 24, but Junior also played a major role, finishing with the remarkable figures of 9-5-7-3.

Eglinton won their semi-final more than four weeks ago, beating Strabane II by five wickets.

The two-day Qualifying Two final also starts on Friday with hosts Ardmore II, beaten finalists last year, making it to the decider again with a nine-wickets win, after bowling out North Fermanagh on Sunday for 101.

They will face Bready III, who humbled last year's Qualifying Three winners Limavady, dismissing them for just 47.
