It wasn't the best of seasons for Lisburn who finished bottom of the Premier League, winning 3 of their 14 matches, while they exited the senior cup at the second round stage.

Their bowling was led by Josh Manley whose haul of 34 wickets at 22.18 was the second biggest haul in the region, while he was the only Lisburn player to take five wickets in an innings, doing so twice.

Only two of their other bowlers managed to break the 20 wickets barrier, with Callum Atkinson taking 20 at 25.40, while Ireland Under 19 star Matthew Humphreys claimed 20 at 33.60.

Others to reach double figures were David Simpson (18 at 26.67), Mark Berry (15 at 29.93), and Boyd Rankin, whose 15 victims cost a whopping 45.13 with an economy rate over six.

The batting was dominated by Indian professional Faiz Fazal, whose tally of 1043 at 54.89 was the second highest in the NCU. He made the only senior hundreds at the club - hitting four as well as four fifties.

Robert Rankin was also in the runs, making five half centuries on his way to 502 at 23.90, while skipper Adam Berry made 354 runs at 16.09.

Chris Burns was the only other player to pass 300 runs - 328 at 19.29 - while Jonathan Waite almost got there, making 295 (two 50s).

Matthew Humphreys (247) and David Simpson (218) got past 200, but there was in truth not enough depth and support to Faiz Fazal and Robert Rankin.

There are some excellent youth cricketers at Wallace Park who will no doubt be playing an instrumental role at the club in the years ahead.
