All 3 senior teams were in action on the final weekend of the 2018 season. A mixed weekend for the club with 2 wins and 2 losses.
The 1s sealed promotion back to the Premier League at the first time of asking with a comfortable victory against Donacloney Mill on Saturday at the Park. Dingle and Simmo the stars with the bat. Simmo followed this up with a 3 for with the ball which was matched by 2s stalwart Boothers making his first senior outing of the season. Congratulations to everyone involved with the 1sts on what has been a most enjoyable season.
Unfortunately ours 2s came up short in a winner takes all match against Instonians with both teams looking to avoid the drop to Junior 2. Hard lines to Gav McGill’s men who will no doubt come back stronger next season.
The 3s concluded their season with two 20/20 fixtures against Bangor on Saturday, winning 1 and losing 1. This meant that William Blair’s young side finish 4th in Junior 5. A good return for such a young team, who will be looking to push for promotion next season.
