Longford's debut game in coloured clothing ended in defeat when they lost by 7 wickets to a strong Kerry side in the first round of the newly formed RSA National Cup.

Longford never really recovered from a disastrous start which saw them falter to 12 for 3, and despite the best efforts of Adnan (84), their final total of 129 was never going to be enough.

So it proved as Kerry lost just 3 wickets passing the total and will now face a daunting journey to Muckamore.
