Trent Johnston to take Cork County training on April 2nd

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011

Cork County are proud to announce that former Irish captain Trent Johnston will be taking senior practise on Saturday the 2nd of April at Ashton School Gym. The all-rounder who has recently returned from Ireland’s excellent showing at the Cricket World Cup in India is taking time out from his preparations for the Irish cricket season by travelling to Cork for a few days. Trent will be hosted by the Rochestown Park Hotel for the duration of his stay and will put the senior squad, captained by Bruce Koch, through their paces between 12 and 2 p.m., which will also include a Q & A session for any young cricketers who wish to come along.

Johnston’s career began at New South Wales where he played alongside the likes of Mark Taylor, Michael Slater and Brett Lee, before choosing to represent Ireland. A positive captain who led from the front, he had little problem motivating his side – as demonstrated when Ireland bounced back from a disappointing World Cricket League in Kenya, where they finished 5th, to demolish the United Arab Emirates and qualify for the final of the Intercontinental Cup. He tore the heart out of the UAE batting line up in their second innings taking three for eight from his eight overs as Ireland recorded a morale-boosting victory by an innings and 170 runs. He led Ireland to a thrilling tie against Zimbabwe in their first match of the 2007 World Cup before beating Pakistan – Johnston hit the winning runs – to record one of the biggest upsets in history. He recently partnered John Mooney at the crease when the North County man hit the winning runs against England at the 2011 World Cup.

All Cork County members are welcome to attend on the April 2nd to see one of Ireland’s cricketing hero’s. For further details contact the Club on 021 4272569 or follow us on Facebook at Cork Countycc
