Pollard takes top prize at 2020 Virtual Awards

Saturday, May 1st, 2021

Cork County’s first and hopefully last virtual Awards Night take place on Friday, 30th April, as the club looked back on an eventful and challenging 2020 season that has been condensed due to the Covid health emergency resulting in a T20 only format across all levels of the game.

As the club was unable to celebrate the achievements and impact of members under more normal circumstances at an end of season dinner due to government restrictions, it was better late than never to have a look back as we prepare to look forward to the 2021 season.

2020 Awards Night… Belatedly

Thursday, April 22nd, 2021

Seeing as the club wasn’t able to host the 2020 Annual Awards Night due to the restrictions that have been in place since the end of last season, we will be naming the various award winners from U11s right up to the Club Player of the Year.

With the youth section recommencing training the week after then there is no better time to acknowledge the effects of players, teams and volunteers from a condensed 2020 season.

2020 Christmas Raffle Results

Monday, December 21st, 2020

The draw for the 2020 Christmas Raffle took place in the surroundings of the old Pavilion at the Mardyke on Sunday, 20th December, at 8 p.m. 

There was an overwhelming response to this year’s raffle with members and supporters getting involved in the organisation and purchase of tickets which was great to see. With the proceeds going towards a worthwhile cause and some fantastic prizes up for grabs, then anticipation was high ahead of the big draw.

MC on the night Andy Wootton was ably assisted by Talha Kayani, Kevin O’Sullivan and Abdul Jabbar Younus who took care of proceedings to announce the various winners of the raffle. The winners were selected by using an online number randomizer to void any suggestions of impropriety or Russian interference! 🙂 

The winners were drawn in reverse order starting with the 10th prize and working its way up to the main prize of a 2 night B&B stay at The River Lee Hotel.

The winners were as follows:

  1. 2-night stay at The River Lee Hotel – Bilal Ahsan
  2. Complimentary Club Membership – Veena O’Sullivan
  3. €150 Meadows & Byrne Voucher – Abubakar Saddique
  4. €150 Vanilla Boutique Voucher – Tara Rahman
  5. Sunglasses from Kennedy’s Opticians – Matt Reed
  6. 12-month Pass for Blarney Castle & Gardens – Michael Stout
  7. Pirahna Cricket equipment – Steve Ross
  8. Selection of wines – Ross Durity
  9. Afternoon Tea at The Metropole Hotel – Matt Reed
  10. Uni Salon hair products – Desmond Lucey

The winners will be contacted individually to arrange delivery of the various prizes.

A huge thanks to all involved in organising and taking part in the quiz. Our original target of €1,500 was smashed with the club raising € 2,705 towards the construction of two permanent net bays in the southeastern corner of the grounds with work due to start in the spring once the ground dries up.

All proceeds from the raffle are going directly to the construction of two permanent net bays with artificial wicket surfaces in the southeast corner of the ground opposite the Pavilion. The new training facility would allow youth and adults to improve their game in a friendly and safe environment in an almost year-round basis.

Preparations for the construction of these net bays are at an advanced stage and we hope to begin construction as soon as ground conditions allow.

Your support would be greatly appreciated and go directly to support all our members in their goal to practice and play their best at Cork County Cricket Club.
