Junior Cup: For the seventh consecutive season there will be a 2nd XI team in the final of the Goldblatt McGuigan Junior Cup but it is nine years since one has beaten a senior league side in the decider.

Waringstown II will meet Civil Service North II for a place in this year's final after beating Section Two teams Drumaness and Holywood.

But the winners will have to do it again on August 8 because Armagh and Laurelvale meet in the other semi-final on July 18 after emphatic victories.

Armagh were the day's top scorers with 331, Stuart Lester hitting 131 as they defeated Cooke Collegians by 188 runs. Although Laurelvale totalled 'only' 280, they bowled out Millpark for 39 with David Henry taking six wickets for six runs.

Paddy Beverland hit 85 not out for CSN en route to their 153 target for the loss of one wicket and another youngster, Ross Waite, top scored for Waringstown II in their 23 runs win.

Beverland is joined by Campbell team-mates Paddy Park and Patrick Telford in the Ulster Schools team for the annual two-day game against Southern Schools, which starts today in Rathmines.
