LAST week’s win at Brigade will have buoyed Glendermott in their bid for Premiership survival but there was little sign of much home cheer as the Bond’s Street side were trounced by Coleraine.

LAST week’s win at Brigade will have buoyed Glendermott in their bid for Premiership survival but there was little sign of much home cheer as the Bond’s Street side were trounced by Coleraine.

Jason Lynch was the hosts’ mainstay again following up his unbeaten 39 with 30 not out here but save for cameos from Alan Johnson and Charlie Elder he received little support. Jarred Barnes did the initial damage with the ball for Coleraine and Rishi Chopra finished things off as Glendermott were bowled out for just 112.

Niall McDonnell and Scott Campbell’s opening stand of 77 put paid to any hopes of another shock and the home team’s former professional, Roy Silva, finished things off in double quick time with an unbeaten 36 off just 14 balls.

At The Rectory, Coleraine beat Glendermott by eight wickets.
