It was a solid season for Pembroke who finished fourth in the league, reached the cup semi-final, and the quarter-finals of the Irish senior cup.

The batting saw three hundreds scored as well as 15 half centuries, with Theo Lawson leading the run charts in making 513 at 30.18 (1 hundred, 2 50's).

That saw him in 11th position in the overall Leinster averages, with Fiachra and Lorcan Tucker also making the top 20.

Skipper Fiachra scored two centuries on his way to 449 at 24.94, while Lorcan was incredibly consistent making six 50's in the ten matches he played, scoring 437 at a healthy average of 48.56.

Andrew Balbirnie only manged nine matches, scoring 291 at 41.57, while younger brother Jack made 268 at 17.87, and Diarmuid Tucker 250 at 15.62.

New Zealand left-armer Alex Ridley led the way in the bowling, taking 31 wickets at 21.94, one ahead of Jack Balbirnie, who impressed in taking 30 wickets at 17.87.

Fiachra Tucker had two five-wicket hauls in his 22 wickets at 24.32, while Paul Lawson captured 18 at 24.67.

Teenagers JJ Garth (14) and Gavin Hoey (10) also reached double figures, while injury and unavailability meant Josh Little only took seven wickets.

The recent signing of Shaheen Khan certainly bolsters the playing capability of Pembroke for 2019, and if they can their full team on the park, then they will certainly be hard to beat.
