Donemana struck first blood in the North West last week, the winners in the only match to beat the weather, and if they can make it two out of two against Coleraine they will prove they are in for the long haul this time round.

Dwayne McGerrigle and Gary McClintock both hit 50s in the seven wickets victory over Glendermott, who host Long's Supervalu Premiership title favourites Brigade.

It was always going to be a big ask for the promoted Rectory side, who have snapped up Stevie Moore from Drummond, to get anything from two such tough opening fixtures so any points they pick up will be a bonus.

Ballyspallen, who won a play-off last year to join Glendermott in the top flight this season, have Eglinton as visitors for their first Premiership game at Bridge Park, while defending champions Bready start their defence, at the second attempt, at home to Strabane.

It has been confirmed that the three games postponed last week will all be played next Sunday, May 12.
