Donemana Pen Pics
Donemana Pen Pics-
Dwayne McGerrigle- Hard hitting batsman equally adept batting at Number 1 or Number 6. Gave up the captaincy earlier in the season to concentrate on his game and capable of taking this match by the scruff of the neck if he gets started.
Graeme Boyd- An in and out season so far, possibly due to work committments but little doubt that he plays a very solid role for the Holm men when called upon.
James McBrine- Looking to set the seal on his 30th season in senior cricket with a winners medal and played a match-winning innings in the semi final win against Pembroke. Seriously talented all-rounder who will be one of the experienced heads that skipper Shaffique will look to if things get tight.
Jordan McGonagle- The former Ireland spinner has been back to his very best since handing back the captain's armband and will be another that the Tyrone side will look to as they seek to keep Leinster's batsmen quiet.
Junior McBrine- Like his brother he looks set to have a massive say in Donemana's chance of winning the trophy, the all-rounder has once again continued to defy father time with yet another string of impressive performances this season.
Andy McBrine- Junior junior has belied his youth this season with a confidence matched only by his stunning ability as he has cemented his place in the first XI this season. Happy to open the batting, and indeed the bowling and is already showing the fighting spirit you would expect him to have.
Azhar Shaffique- The model club professional if ever there was one, the Pakistan player continues to do exactly what it says on the tin. Another big year with both bat and ball and the new captain to boot, Azhar would dearly love to finish the season in style after an indifferent domestic campaign.
Richard Kee- Typifies the Donemana style, the opener has revelled in his role at the top of the order since returning from his short stint at Fox Lodge. Can be brutal on the seamers as evidenced in the semi final and quite capable of taking the game away from opponents early on.
Richard Dougherty- Continues to ply his trade as one of the best wicketkeepers around and a fantastic player to come to bat with a couple of overs left. You won't see him until near the end of the innings unless Donemana are 9 down, but when he does arrive in the middle, watch out for sparks.
Dale Olphert- Has turned into one of Azhar's regular picks for first team duty and whilst his main job will be to bolster the middle order, he is a useful go-to bowler as well. Recorded some decent scores this season and one of the safest fielders in the league.
Stephen Dunn- What a year it's been for the left arm seamer, revelling in the new ball role vacated by Andy Britton. The bowler has learned how to vary and disguise his pace a lot better this season and has been able to control the swing a lot more and the results are there to be seen. Could be a handful with the new white ball.
