Glendermott overcame a rusty start to power to a 5-wickets win at Burndennett.

The home side's openers Mark Doherty (29) and Mark Pollock (25) shared an opening stand of 59 in 8 overs before skipper Alan Johnson decided he had seen enough and took matters into his own hands, accounting for both.

Spin to win is the key in the NW and Ben Mills helped himself to a five-wickets haul as the hosts collapsed to 133 - not helped by a calf injury to Niall McDonnell, who retired hurt.

Two wickets apiece for Ross McCay and Conan Pollock had the contest even at 73 for 5, but Manav Chhabra proved the match-winner.

He thumped 6 fours and 3 sixes in a 28-ball knock, adding 61 in 7 overs with Trevor Britton (19*) to seal a five-wickets win.

The Nedd had a tough Championship baptism as they went down to a 10-wickets loss at Bonds Glen.

The Ballykelly side were bowled out for 137, with Jamie Mills making 31 and 20's for Sean Hargan and Johnny Young.

Heinrich Roberts took 3 for 17, while there were two each for new professional Divan Posthumus and teenage spinner Sam Kincaid.

Another teenager, Sam Haslett top-scored with an unbeaten 61 from 57 balls (9 fours, 2 sixes), sharing an unbroken opening stand of 138 with Simon Killen, whose run-a-ball 59 included 5 fours and 3 sixes, as the Bee Gees romped to a 10-wickets win.

St Johnston got their season up and running with a 7 wickets win at home to Ballyspallen. The visitors struggled batting first with James Cusack's patient 54 the best of their 120 for 8 - four wickets for Scott Devenney.

Deepak Reddy thumped four sixes and 3 fours in an unbeaten 57 from 56 balls, adding 71 for the second wicket with David Lapsley (31) to all but seal the win.
