Lisburn II v Muckamore II - Sunday 27th July 1986 - Moylena

Were you right ? – 2nd XI fast bowler Michael Blair took all 10 wickets in a innings. The only time it has ever happened in the club’s history. Remarkably however, the feat did not include a hat-trick. The 2nds won the match by 98 runs after bowling Muckamore out for 54. Michael had a big shout for the MOM also top scoring in Lisburn’s 152 with 49 !
