With the weather finally having picked up we have a jam packed schedule at the club for the next 8 days. Many of the games at the club have been well attended so far and with the weather picking up we’ll look for the numbers in attendance to continue to grow!
The 4th XI kick us off tonight in the park with their Whelan Cup clash against Malahide. The two sides met in the league yesterday with the 4th XI scrambling a bye off the last ball of the game to claim the win. They will be looking to repeat the dose again tonight.
On Tuesday the 3rd XI take on Old Belvedere at home in the YM Salver. They are also coming off the back of a good win at the weekend against the same team! The 3rd XI got home in another big run chase, which seemed to be the theme of last weekend, and will be hopeful of progressing against their local rivals.
As a result of this fixture nets will be limited on Tuesday and only the 1st and 2nd XI’s will be in attendance due to the restricted net space and the 3rd, 4th and 5th XI all being in action during the week anyway.
On Wednesday the 5th XI look to progress from LCU 20/20 Group B and into the Quarter Finals of the inaugural staging of the competition. They saw off Civil Service by 4 wickets last week in their first group game and will need to deal with the challenge of Adamstown now in order to progress.
We’ll be back to full nets on Thursday evening with everybody encouraged to attend by our Head Coach, Matt Lunson, as we look to stay sharp and work on all aspects of our game with the season starting to get into top gear.
On Sunday the 2nd XI host Oakhill looking to fill their boots again after their epic run chase at the weekend in the Senior 2 Cup against Leinster. They chased down 333 with 2 wickets to spare to progress to the next round and will be looking to build on that excellent victory this weekend.
The 1st XI look to get back to winning ways to finish off the buy slate at the club over the Bank Holiday weekend when they entertain Cork County in the league on Monday. The 1st XI have made a strong start to their league campaign and will look to get back to the business of going straight back to Division One at the first time of asking.
Please come along and support your fellow club mates over the week. All support is greatly welcomed and with the weather as good as it is and the bars fully stocked there is no reason not to come along and make a day/evening out of supporting your club!
