Woodvale gave as good as they got in the Premier League, winning and losing seven matches to ensure a fourth place finish in the table.

The batting was dominated by Ruhan Pretorius who scored 918 runs at an average of 54, which included three of their four senior hundreds as well as five fifties.

Harry Warke was second in the aggregate list with 543 at 28.58 (four 50s), just ahead of James Hall who totaled 525 at 29.17.

Aditya Adey also passed the 500-run mark, making 502 at 26.42, with a senior hundred and a half century. There is then a huge gap to Sunny Stephenson and his 170 runs, while Wayne Horwood, Stephen Bunting and Ferhan Saeed also made more than 100 runs.

Only two bowlers claimed more than 20 wickets, with Pretorius again very much top of the pile.

He took 29 wickets at 18.62, with one of three five-wicket hauls managed by the club's bowling unit.

Aditya Adey had the best figures of the Ballygomartin Road's side's attack (7-14) which helped him to 26 wickets at 21.46.

Ferhan Saeed with 17 wickets at 22.18 was third in their aggregates, just ahead of James Hall, whose 15 victims were at a relatively expensive 31.33.

Others who managed double figures were Pavan Karthik (11 at 33.03) and Kyle Walsh who took 5 for 28 on his way to ten wickets at 28.90.

Woodvale have shown they aren't afraid to strengthen, while also investing in facilities and youth.

No doubt they will continue to progress in 2022.
