Davy Scanlon will head into what is a very busy and very pivotal weekend for Bready Cricket Club knowing that by Sunday night he could become the first person in the club's history to lift the North West senior title.

Last weekend's win in Strabane left the Warriors' bowler with one hand on the old trophy and a wide-margin win on Saturday against Coleraine could well be enough to seal the deal. If results elsewhere don't go their way, Bready will have another crack on Sunday, albeit against a Brigade side still sniffing a chance themselves.

Reflecting on last weekend and how it teed up the run-in, "Sca" felt that experience had won the day.

"It was a tough game and a bit of inexperience against their spinners got us into trouble. We're fortunate in that we have lads down the order who can bat and we knew that Strabane had to keep going with their bowlers which would open up an end for us in the latter overs if we could get there; and that's how it worked out.

"It was a massive win and it means that we go into the Coleraine game on Saturday in a good position."

"They've done well too and are still in with a shout. It shows how competitive this league can be that we had a first v second game last week and another one this week. Depending on other results we might even have a third on Sunday when we go to Beechgrove!

"Coleraine have done really well this season and they'll be a big threat so we have to make sure we go about it the right way. If we lost there it would change the complexion of the Brigade game on Sunday because then my old pal Andy Britton is right back in the mix. The ball is in our court now though so we have to fight to the end to keep it here."

On the team front it is one in and one out for Bready this weekend- Jamie Magee is on holiday while Gregory McFaul returns having missed the Strabane game.

For Scanlon it is now all about holding their nerve and he has no doubt his side has the reserves to keep going.
