Fingal Girls Cup 2018
The Fingal Girls Cup, now in its fourth year, saw four National schools competing in a league structure finishing with a final held this week at Malahide CC.
The competition was run for National schools and participating this year were: Milverton NS (Skerries), Balrothery NS, St Andrew’s NS (Malahide) and Oliver Plunkett’s NS (Malahide).
The competition has been a big success over the last four years with three different schools winning and has produced a lot of high quality cricketers.
The competition was run during April, May & June with over 60 girls taking part.
After the series of league games finished, Oliver Plunkett’s NS were top with St Andrew’s NS coming second. These two schools competed in the final on Wednesday, June 6th at Malahide Cricket Club where Oliver Plunkett’s NS came out the winners.
We had an amazing sunny day with one of the biggest crowds at a Leinster schools match with over 250 spectators watching a very close final which only had 15 runs in it at the end.
The tournament has been a huge success with 90% of the girls participating having since gone on to join their local clubs.
