There was treble cause for celebration with Waringstown the toast of the Cricket Ireland Awards.

They won the Club of the Year award, Morgan Topping was the Player of the Year, while legend Kyle McCallan was inducted into the Hall of Fame.

"We were delighted and grateful to receive the Club of the Year at the Cricket Ireland Awards on Friday night," a club spokesman told CricketEurope.

"It was truly a club effort on and off the field and so many people contributed to a remarkable twelve months. Our pavilion had a water leak the week before Christmas 2022 and the entire interior was destroyed.

"It took a combination of our own efforts (Mostly labouring!)  and those of skilled local trades people to get pavilion operational for the start of the season.

"The weather was a constant challenge throughout the year, particularly with so many games at The Lawn. We had three attempts at T20 finals day plus hosting the Irish Senior Cup and National Cup finals!

"Our First XI had a marvellous season against a backdrop of injuries and unavailability and our youth teams their best season for many years.

In October, again in dreadful weather conditions we installed additional drainage around the square and at the Clare Road end of the ground. It took collective spirit and a lot of resilience but we had some great craic along the way!"

Other NCU winners saw Neil Rock and Amy Hunter pick up the interpro player accolades.
