The weekend began by the visit of Laois 4 to take on David Gray's Sandyford 3rd XI at a very lush Marlay Park. Put in to bat, the visitors made 119-ao, with I. Woodward making 55 and only one of the other batsmen making double figures and that off one over. Despite being 12-04 at one stage, Sandyford made a good effort to chase the score down before being dismissed for 98, with Anand Joshi top scoring on 28.

Can we encourage all members to make an effort to come down to give a hand out and have Marlay shining. It should only take an hour or two if we can all pitch in.
