SEVEN days after lifting the North West Senior Cup, Brigade skipper Andy Britton will experience an even more satisfying feeling tomorrow evening if the Premiership leaders beat Donemana.
The former Donemana player returns to his roots knowing a win – or possibly even a narrow defeat – will be enough to win the title, with two games to spare.
Last week he, jokingly, asked, “do you think they would give me the trophy at Donemana?” The answer to that is ‘no’ but it wouldn’t stop the champagne being uncorked in the away dressing room if they can call themselves league champions for the first time since 2011.
As 11 wins out of 11 would indicate, the Beechgrove side have been a class apart this season with every player contributing and there could be a double celebration this weekend because on Sunday they face Donemana again, this time in the final of the Faughan Valley T20, at Strabane, with the prize for the winners a place in the All-Ireland T20 finals, at Stormont on August 25.
Two other trophies could be decided this weekend, with Killyclooney playing Fox Lodge in the Women’s Cup final tonight and if Burndennett beat the weather and Ardmore and Newbuildings, they will win promotion to the top flight as winners of the Championship.
