RISHI CHOPRA is the winner of the Long's Supervalu NW Player of the Month for June.

The Coleraine all-rounder scored 409 runs including an unbeaten 192 against Limavady, captured 9 wickets and took four catches and a run out to amass an impressive 639 points.

That haul was just enough to see off the challenge of May's winner - Newbuildings West Indian professional Peat Salman who gained 621 points.

Other players who impressed were the professionals from Glendermott - Azeem Ghumman (544 pts) - and Eglinton's Oraine Williams (463 points).

A special word of praise to Luke Hayes of Fox Lodge who in a golden month took 15 wickets at the incredibly low average of 5.53.

The Coleriane trio of Stephen Hutchinson, Matty Smyth and Gordon Cooke also had successful months with the ball, capturing 15, 14 and 13 wickets respectively.
