Limavady reach Faughan Valley Cup final
Limavady moved into the Faughan Valley cup final on Thursday night after a convincing win against Glendermott in their delayed section decider at the Hunter Grounds.
A 44-run first wicket stand between Des Curry and Andrew Riddles, both scoring in even time, got the hosts off to a good start while a quick-fire 38 from Andy Britton picked the rate up in the middle.
A wasteful Glendermott attack also conceded 27 freebies as Limavady posted 151 for 7 in their 20 overs with Stephen McCloskey claiming three of the wickets to fall.
Roy Silva opened the batting for the Rectory side and his 32 was by light years the best of the reply, the rest of the card to quote Barry Chambers resembled the telephone number for the Sri Lankan Cricket Board- 0,1,1,2,3,4,5,6,8,10- three wickets each here for Des Curry and son Dean, with two more for Chris Moore.
The Roesiders will have to wait until the 19th of this month to discover who they will meet in the decider at Beechgrove as Donemana and Bready meet in the Tyrone section.
At The John Hunter Grounds, Limavady beat Glendermott by 74 runs
