We slightly unexpectedly found ourselves in the second round of the Russell Court Trophy facing Clondalkin 2 in Halverstown. In summary we won by 23 runs with a fine all round team effort. Four batsmen made 20+ and Mark Ronaldson(21) launched a massive 6 that landed on the pavilion roof. Not to be outdone his father Tim(21) also hit a six.
The fielding was equally exciting. Tim got 2 stumpings which is an improbable event in Division 13 and reminded him of his youth when he was club wicketkeeper. The bowling unit of Drumm, Case (4 wks), Ali (3 wks) and MacNiocaill (2 wks) kept it very tight and the ‘coup de grace’ was Neville’s double wicket maiden in the last over. We march onto the quarter-final to face AIB on 14th June.
