St Johnston will play Newbuildings, while Killyclooney will face Brigade in the semi-finals of the T10 Championship cup - both matches next Wednesday (August 12th).

The Saints won all three group matches, beating Ardmore by 14 runs at the Boathole to claim top spot.

Ian Macbeth hit four sixes in a top score of 40, while David Lapsley (24) and Andrew McElhatton (17) also chipped in to a Saints total of 96.

Ardmore were ahead of the required rate approaching the half-way point, but two wickets for McElhatton (2-14) and tight spells by Nathan Cole and Ian MacBeth saw them finish on 82 for 5.

In the same group Brigade claimed the runners-up slot thanks to a superb 92 not out from Andy Britton.

The Beechgrove skipper hit 10 sixes in an unbeaten 92 from just 31 balls as Brigade scored 148 against Letterkenny who replied with 70.

In the other group Killyclooney earned the top slot as they beat Bready convincingly.

Andrew Neill took four wickets as the Magheramason side made 72, with Killyclooney chasing it down with five wickets to spare.

They had beaten Fox Lodge the previous week - William Finlay's half century the highlight of a successful chase.

Newbuildings claimed second place after their game against Fox Lodge fell victim to the weather.

The Plate competition sees Ardmore host Bready on Friday August 14th, while Fox Lodge entertain Letterkenny on the 12th.
