Cork native Martin Finn bagged 1-8 as London advanced to the semi-finals of the Ulster Senior Hurling Championship following a comfortable 19-point win over Fermanagh at Ruislip.

Top-scorer Finn claimed the Exiles' only goal early in the second half, after his side had romped to a comfortable 0-10 to 0-3 half-time lead with Kevin McMullen also playing a vital role for the hosts.

McMullen set the tone for this contest with the opening brace of scores.

Fermanagh hit a trio of scores in quick succession however with Ryan Bogue on target to edge the Erne County into an early one-point lead.

The visitors amazingly failed to score for the 22 minutes which remained until the interval, allowing London to take control.

Finn's goal ensured a 10-point lead early on the restart and despite the best efforts of Bogue and centre-half-back Declan McGarry, London failed to ease up and comfortably booked a place in the last four of the competition.
