Cork Cricket Club

Positive start to the season for the 1st XI

It was an extremely positive start to the 2016 competitive season for Cork County as they recorded victories in both Leinster and Munster competitions. A slightly weakened side that travelled up to Kenure to face Rush on Saturday, 30th April, came away with an invaluable 3 run victory thanks to a fine all round team display.

Bank holiday Monday, 2nd May, saw a relatively young Cork County side take on Midleton for a place in the Senior Shield decider against County Kerry. A great bowling display from ‪#‎CCCC‬ youngsters Brian Kelleher with his first senior 5 wicket haul and speedster Aaron Cawley with another 3 wickets saw County home by 7 runs.
