Another busy weekend of cricket on the way. Let’s hope the weather is kind to us.
First things first, big congratulations to both the Women’s 2nd team and the Men’s 2nd team for reaching their 20-20 cup finals. We’ll have the details of when and where these finals take place a little later.
So now on to this weekend.
First up on Saturday is the AMC 20 Over bash. We host both Railway Union and Phoenix Cricket from 10.30/10.45 in the morning.
The order of play is as below
10.45 – Clontarf v Railway Union
14.00 – Clontarf v Phoenix Cricket
17.00 – Phoenix Cricket V Railway Union
We have a little taster video on our Facebook page to get the blood flowing. You can find the page by searching for Clontarf Cricket Club on Facebook and liking us.
On the day there (hopefully) will be a BBQ, tea and coffee and of course a bar! If you’re a Lions fan, the club house will be open early to show the match so you have no excuse to miss any cricket.
Afternoon Tea will be available for all spectators in the Tea Room on Saturday €5 per head….all profits to help the continuous improvements to our tea room! Homemade cakes and scones yummy.
Away from the Bull Ring on Saturday the 3rds travel to Castleknock for their cup Quarter final. This is a 1pm start, and the 6ths travel to Park Avenue to take on Railway Union also at 1pm.
Sunday is a bit quieter, the 5ths are at home to Terenure 3rds while the 2nds go to YMCA for what can only be described as a HUGE league game, again both start at 1pm.
The Women are in action on Tuesday and Wednesday with the 1sts going to Leinster on Tuesday and the 2nds making their way to Phoenix, both 6.30 starts. They have both had great starts to their seasons, so if you’re over in their direction please pop in and lend your support.
Finally, the draws for the Leinster Senior 1 & 2 Cup Semi-finals has been made, we have been drawn away in both.
On Sunday July 16th the 1sts go to Merrion (currently top of Division 2).
The 2nds will travel to Knockharley on a date to be confirmed. We’ll keep you updated.
Best of luck to all competing over the weekend.
Hope to see you at some of the games
