Weekend Review: 9th/10th May
After 2 weeks off due to a burst water pipe from above, the 1st XI finally got their compeitive cricket season underway as they travelled to Leinster CC
in Round 1 of the Irish Senior Cup. A delayed start saw the game reduced to 40 overs, again due to the recent rain, and with CCC losing the toss and having to bowl first, 56-5 after 25 overs was more than an ideal response. Some lower-order hitting from Leinster saw them reach 122ao in the 37th over, which seemed slightly under-par. CCC set about the chase, and against some excellent bowling, also lost early wickets. At 32-5 things were not looking promising, but a steady 32 from Ryan Eagleson helped the cause. However it wasn't meant to be for CCC, in the end 114ao, 8 runs short.
All other Senior team games fell victim of the weather, with re-arranged dates yet to be confirmed.
