There was to be no magnificent seven cup wins in a row for Donemana, and they struggled in the league which by their high standards amounts to a bitterly disappointing season.

There's no doubt they were badly affected by a combination of injuries and unavailabilities which meant they were rarely able to field a settled side.

It wasn't all doom and gloom though, with the second string having a superb season, doing the treble, with the league, cup and Ulster Plate all in the trophy cabinet at The Holm.

In addition they lifted the Midweek Cup after a tough tussle with Killyclooney.

A look at the stats shows there was still plenty of power with the batting making 21 half centuries and five hundreds.

Six players made more than 400 runs with overseas player Malith Cooray leading the way with 741 runs at 43.59 (4 x 50's and 2 x 100s).

The McClintock twins were next with William making 558 at 26.57 and Gary 483 at 37.15.

Andrew Riddles (453 at 32.36), Andrew McBrine (447 at 37.25) and skipper Ricky-Lee Dougherty 435 at 33.46) were the others to pass the 400 mark.

The bowling returns are nowhere nearly as impressive with only three players taking more than 20 wickets.

Andy McBrine (26 at 16) heads the chart, while Jordan McGonigle (21 @26.10) and Willie McBrine (20 at 35) were the others.

The weakness in the bowling unit suggests the target for an overseas player may be well be a bowling all-rounder rather than a batting one.

There's no doubt that Donemana will be there or thereabouts, as their history shows they don't entertain too many barren campaigns.
