The Halverstown Acorns
On the back of two years of Summer Camps and Primary Schools coaching, we where able to bring back underage cricket to Halverstown. We have a crop of kids aged between 8 and 12 that have taken to cricket like ducks to water. They got their first taste of competitive action on September 1st as Bagenalstown brought a team to Brannockstown. We play pairs cricket were everyone gets to bat for at least 3 or 4 overs each. and every player gets to bowl.
The game was a big step up from the drills and training sessions they've had over the summer. There was a big crowd of parents there from both teams to cheers on the kids. Bagenalstown who have had a full season of playing games and were very experienced, but our Acorns gave their all with Bat and Ball. 
We followed up this game with a trip to Bagenalstown for a Blitz tournament with games again Carlow and Wexford. The experience of the game 2 weeks previously had stood to them and they all played with so much more confidence. 
Current Halverstown Acorns Squad:
Elise McConaghy, Sile Conroy, Stephanie Johnston, James Lynch, Theo Lynch, Jack Lynch, Naomi Williamson, Drew Williamson, Ivan van Wyk, Noelle Rosa, Nolan Rosa, Innayah Zafar, Aryan Mehmood and Zainab Shah.
