It was a season to remember for The Rectory side as they won a divisional title for the first time in their history, securing a return to the top echelons of NW cricket.

The club's batting fired, with six players scoring 300 runs or more, with four different centurions and 18 half centuries scored.

Former Irish international led the way, the epitome of consistency with nine 50's and a hundred on his way to 926 runs at a superb average of 77.17 - the best in the league by a considerable distance.

Skipper Gordon Montgomery made 499 runs at 35.64, also making a hundred and three 50's.

Bob Robinson hit 460 runs at exactly 23 making two 50's, as did Alan Johnson who scored 428 at 32.92, which also included 136 not out - the club's highest score of the year.

Jason Lynch was their other centurion as he hit 330 runs at 22, while red ink specialist Gordon Cooke averaged 52.67 in making 316 runs.

On the bowling front, four players passed the 20 wicket mark with Gordon Cooke's haul of 45 wickets the second best in the Championship.

It was a family affair for the Cookes, with elder brother Ian taking 28 wickets at 18.96, while David also chipped in with 18 wickets at just over 19.

Alan Johnson was another who had an excellent all-round season with 28 at 24.94, while teenage spinner Ben Mills captured 22 wickets at 22.73.

Dale Culbert picked up 19 wickets at just over 10 apiece, while 'Goofer' was another who captured a Michelle, although he only took eight wickets.

Glendermott will no doubt find the going tough in the Premiership, but they are rumoured to be close to strengthening the playing ranks for 2019.

If they source a couple of locals as well as a high quality overseas player, then they are more than capable of holding their own in 2019.
