Civil Service North sealed a top half finish in the Ulster Bank Premier League yesterday, winning the final (20 overs) match of the season, against CIYMS by nine wickets.

Led by Andrew Cowden, CSN's fourth place finish, behind champions Instonians, Carrickfergus and Waringstown, was a one place improvement on last season while CI dropped two to fifth, Lisburn up one to sixth and North Down, last year's runners up had only relegated Derriaghy below them.

In the North West, Newbuildings beat Bond's Glen to go into Saturday's promotion/relegation play-off against Drummond, but there was disappointment for Eglinton U13s and CSN U11s who lost their All-Ireland finals to Leinster and The Hills respectively.
