Another Fantastic Week of Cricket for our youth teams!

The Juniors put in a great performance in the Gerry Duffy Cup Semi Final last Friday. The team batted first and scored 233 runs which was a super target to set. This qualified them for the Finals on the same afternoon in Leinster CC. With a mad dash and lunch on the go, the boys lined up to play Merrion CC in the Final. Unfortunately, we were narrowly defeated by 5 runs.

The U8s had a great time at their blitz in Leinster CC with Merrion & Leinster last Sunday. Next big line up is a blitz in Malahide CC on Saturday 6th July @10am, meeting 9.45.

The Cubs put in a fantastic performance against Adamstown last Saturday with a great win. Well done to Jude Barrett, hat trick hero against Malahide last Sunday morning.

Minors also had a great afternoon in Terenure CC last Sunday and Monday – enjoying a BBQ and participating in 3-team mini-tournament with an English Touring Team from Foremarke School and the hosts Terenure CC.
