A huge weekend looms for the club as the 2nd XI prepare for their 3rd Junior Cup final in 5 years. Hopefully it’s third time lucky and we can bring home the trophy for the first time since 1992.
Cup finals are always a great occasion and they guys would very much appreciate the support if you made it along.

McLean Bookmakers betting on Lisburn Cricket Club
With no fewer than three teams preparing for various cup final matches, Lisburn cricket club is delighted to announce we have just renewed our sponsorship deal with McLean Bookmakers.
The company has more than 60 shops, including two in the city, which makes it the largest independent betting chain in Northern Ireland, and managing director Paul McLean said he was delighted to confirm new financial backing at a time when the club was entering such a crucial and exciting stage of the season.
He declared: “The set up at Wallace Park is hugely impressive. The enthusiasm and the spirit throughout the club is excellent. So much time and effort is invested in the young players and clearly Lisburn is looking to the future.”
The 1stX1 will play either Waringstown or North Down in the final of the NCU T20. The 2nds are down to meet Cliftonville in the final of the Junior Cup and the 4ths will play BISC in the Minor Qualifying cup final. The under 15’s reached this year’s Graham Cup final.
This is the second season that the BetMcLean logo has appeared on Lisburn’s shirts and the agreement followed talks between Mr McLean and senior Lisburn vice-president Dean Simpson, a former club chairman.
He said: “We are absolutely thrilled with the arrangement. BetMcLean support is crucial as we invest in our club structures, especially the youth section. Lisburn is the second oldest club in Ireland with a wonderful history and a great playing record.
“We have to ensure we play at the highest level and that success is maintained and therefore this sort of financial backing is one of the key factors to make sure standards do not drop”
