It was a steady season for the Saints who finished fifth in the Championship, winning six matches and losing seven matches.

The club's batting was relatively consistent, but only one player managed to make it in to the top 20 of the NW run charts.

David Lapsley was the only centurion, with his 134 against Killyclooney (which included 13 sixes) helping him to 413 runs at 22.94, which also included one of the clubs five half centuries.

Jack MacBeth was second, hitting 359 runs at 17.10, hitting one fifty, as did his father Ian, on his way to 345 runs at 21.56.

Michael Rankin scored 321 runs at just over 20, while David MacBeth made exactly 300 at 16.67.

Rammohan Goud, Machingal and David Barnard all passed 200 runs.

The club had two bowlers in the NW top 20, with Nathan Cole having an excellent season, capturing 32 wickets at 17.78, having one of the club's three five-wicket hauls.

Josh Cole impressed at times on his way to 24 wickets at 23.62, while Ian MacBeth hit the 20 wicket mark, at a cost of 27.90.

Rammohan Goud was the second player to take five wickets in a game, managing 15 at 15, limited by his availability, while Jacob Maruske had the best figures of the year - 5 for 6.

There were also double figure contributions from David Macbeth (12), David Lapsley (11) and Andrew Fleming (10).

The Donegal club have started major ground and square renovations for the 2019 season, and have also recruited Kevin Martin once more as a Coach/player, so it promises to be quite a year on and off the field at The BoatHole.
