It was a steady enough season for Eglinton, who finished sixth in the league and came close to capturing the senior cup.

They were on course to beat Brigade in the showpiece decider with Stuart Thompson and Jamie Millar sharing what looked to be a match defining partnership, before collapsing as Ryan MacBeth and Andy Britton wreaked havoc.

Overseas professional didn't have a cup final to remember, but otherwise had a tremendous all-round campaign.

Eglinton's batting was heavily reliant on Erlank and Stuart Thompson, although there were contributions from Ross Allen and the Millar brothers. too.

There were five centuries, and 14 fifties made by the batters, with Erlank topping the charts in making 785 runs at 46.18 (2nd highest aggregate in the NW).

Irish international Thompson also hit two centuries, in making 597 runs at 59.70, while Ross Allen scored 420 runs at 26.25.

Jamie Millar was the other centurion, helping him to 399 runs at 26.60, ahead of his elder sibling Andy who made 381 runs at 21.17.

Erlank was the top wicket taker in the region with 40 wickets at 15.85, with Lee Ritchie taking 27 wickets at 20.52 on his return to the club.

Ross Allen had the only five wicket haul at the club on his way to 26 wickets at 18.04.

Stuart Thompson (18 at 18.04), Andy Millar (17 at 31.71) and Jamie Millar (12 at 27) were the other players to capture double figures.

There are strong rumours of player movement at Eglinton which will be a worry for the village club, so hopefully they will be able to retain the majority for the 2019 campaign.
