4th consecutive Senior T20 Blast title clinched

Monday, June 3rd, 2019

Cork County clinched their 4th consecutive Senior T20 Blast title with a commanding 6 wicket win over Co. Galway at the Mardyke following a long weekend of T20 action.

The Cork men proved irresistible in the competition once completing yet another clean sweep with victories over Cork Harlequins, Limerick City, Limerick and then Co. Galway in the Final.

County remain unbeaten in the Senior T20 Blast since its inception back in 2016 and have really set the bar for other clubs in the province in the T20 format and will no doubt see several of their players get recognition with the Heat and Reds.

Galway too won both their Pool B games against County Kerry and Limerick before going on to defeat Limerick City in a thrilling run chase in their Semi-Final.

Great credit to the grounds staff at the Mardyke who provided an excellent venue for Group A and the Finals Day.

2019 SENIOR T20 BLAST FINAL

Cork County 136-4 [16.5 overs] (Benton 55, Kruger 29, Hassett 17) beat County Galway 134 all out [19.5 overs] (Uddin 51, Mullen 26, Duggan 3-20, Wootton 2-23) by 6 wickets at the Mardyke.

Following a recent appeal on Twitter from Roos Demol (@vlnierland) and Deirdre O’Shaughnessy (@deshocks) looking for cricket equipment for residents at the Direct Provision Centre on the Kinsale Road, a number of members got together to gather up old equipment to donate. 

A big thanks for Andy Wootton, in particular, who donated a significant amount of old bats, pads & cricketing accessories. Also a special mention to Abdul Jabbar Younus, Scot McNamara, Sean Cawley and Robert Duggan for donating other bits and pieces.  

Direct Provision Centre donation

There was great interest through social media with the guys from the Direct Provision Centre putting the new equipment to use immediately once they returned to their residence on the Kinsale Road. It is hoped to continue to liaise with the group with coaching to be organised over the coming months in the lead up to the season. #WeAreCounty
