It was a season which promised much at senior level, but ultimately ended without any major success for the Stormont club.

Luke Georgeson topped their batting charts but the affable New Zealander failed to really hit the heights of 2021, and seemed distracted by the commotion surrounding his U-turn over an Ireland contract.

His 798 runs at 38 (5 fifties, 1 hundred) is respectable, but you feel the talented left-hander is more than capable of a lot more.

Troy Johnson was the only other centurion at the club, making two hundreds in his 660 at 44, while former Irish international Stuart Thompson hit four fifties in his 577 runs at 36.06.

Marc Ellison was available more than usual and he posted 386 runs at just under 30, with a top score of 97.

The best of the rest were Paddy Beverland, Ryan Hunter, and Chris McMorran who all passed 200.

In the bowling, spinner Ben Adair topped their charts with 32 wickets at 21.16, while Johnson, helped by figures of 7 for 13 went on to claim 30 scalps at just 14.87.

Northern Knight and Ireland Academy bowler Matthew Foster took 30 wickets at a tad over 20, while Georgeson's medium-pace saw him take 29 wickets at 23.48.

We were given a glimpse of the future with Finn Lutton (14 wkts) and Harry Dyer (11 wkts) just two of the array of youth talent progressing through the ranks of the club.

Their second XI won the cup, and their U15s made it all the way to the All-Ireland final, hinting at a bright, sustainable future for CSNI.
