U15s defeat Harlequins in Game 1 of Cork Youth Series

Friday, June 30th, 2017

Cork County U15s put in a mature team performance to record a comprehensive win their first game against Cork Harlequins as part of a 2017 Cork Youth Series. Put into bowl, County restricted Quins to 149 all out in 27 overs, with J Buss (23) and J. Gilbert (24) best of the Harlequins batsmen. For County Daniel Kennedy (3-28), Masroor Salam (2-16) Rioghan O’Sullivan (2-17) were the best of the bowlers, with all the team contributing in the field.

In reply County chased the total down in 30 overs for the loss of 2 wickets with Eshan O’Sullivan (49) and Rioghan O’Sullivan (30) the best of the County batsmen. Special mention must also go to Joe Bailey who fielded for Quins during the County innings, due to an unfortunate injury on the Quins side during the warm up between innings.

Congratulations to Daniel Kennedy and this team as they head into Game 2 on Friday, 7th July.

Cork County U15s beat Cork Harlequins by 8 wickets


County Cubs beat Midleton by 5 wickets in Munster U14 League

Monday, August 8th, 2016

On a very damp day in Midleton, Cork County U14’s recorded their first league success of the league in their last league fixture of 2016.

Winning captain M. Salam won the toss and choose to bowl first on a misty afternoon and that decision looked to be a very good choice with H. Safi running out the Midleton’s opener with a direct hit from midwicket off the first ball.

Another wicket followed in the third over, however from there Midleton built runs with a superb 29 (retired n.o.) from L. O’Reilly, with supporting scores from I. Sharif (22) and J. Bryan (20). This helped Midleton to a score of 117 a.o. after 19.1 overs.

Best of the County bowlers were H. Safi (3.1-0-3-17) E. O’Sullivan (4-0-2-18), D. Kennedy (3-0-1-14), M. Salam (2-0-1-18) and R. O’Sullivan (3-0-1-26). It should also be noted that A Hussain had a great run out with a direct hit from long stop.

In reply County chased down the target of 118 in 17.1 overs for the loss of 5 wickets. Best of the batsmen were Z. Pirzada 26 (retired n.o.), E. O’Sullivan (21 n.o.), A McAllen (17 n.o.) and H. Safi (13). For Midleton I. Sharif (3-0-1-19), H. Edgerton (3-0-1-26) and L. O’Reilly (4-0-1-26) were the best of the bowlers.

Well done to all.
