It’s been a week of mixed fortunes for young Bready and Warriors opening batsman and off-spinner Gavin Roulston. The left-hander’s team were bundled out of the senior cup with an inspired Mark Averill taking six wickets, but on Tuesday he made it back-to-back half centuries for the Warriors as they won a rain-affected T20 clash with Munster Reds at Oak Hill in County Wicklow.

“I was very pleased to score my second 50 in two games for the Warriors, but unfortunately the rain interrupted the game but in the end we were delighted to get the win thanks to fine bowling efforts by Andy McBrine, Marcello Piedt and Ryan Macbeth,” said Roulston, who turns 18 next week.

“Our loss to Eglinton last Saturday in the cup was certainly very disappointing. At the half-way point we were very happy to restrict them to 189 but unfortunately our batting failed to fire on the day.

“Obviously, it was very disappointing to exit the cup but we have started well in the league being unbeaten and hopefully we can continue to build on our league form in the coming weeks.”

Roulston has scored over 400 runs in all competitions, being one of the in-form batsmen in the region.

“I’m pleased with my own form personally at the minute, so it’s just a matter of keep working hard at my game and continue to look to improve.”
