U15s lost in opening round of the Graham Cup
The U15s lost by 67 runs to a strong CSNI XI in the Graham Cup last night at Stormont. Having restricted the home side to 156 with a disciplined bowling display and good ground fielding. Best of our bowlers was Alex Hewitt with 3 for 26 helped by two stumpings by Sam Topping. In the face of some hostile and accurate bowling by the opening pair of Hugh Minford (2 for 7) and Adam Simmonite (2 for 5) in their allotted 8 overs our run chase faltered and wickets tumbled regularly. Contributions of 43 from Shane Burke and 22 from Stuart McCollam added respectability to the inevitable defeat.
Congratulation to CSNI and we wish you all the best in the future rounds of the Graham Cup.
