The weekend began with the 3rds visiting Laoise. Batting first in constant drizzle, Sandyford made 196-ao with Anand Joshi hitting a career best 86 with the next highest scorer being Daniel White on 14. Laoise's reply was played for the most part in sunshine and despite an aggressive opening, the innings eventually fell away with the home side being all out for 145, with man of the match Anand Joshi taking 3 wickets.


Anand Joshi who made 86 and took 3 wickets.

A very good win also for the 2nds at home to North County in Marlay Park. The visitors batted first and were dismissed for only 65, with the wickets spread around which Sandyford chased down for the loss of three wickets.

Only one game over the weekend when the 2nds took on Leinster 6ths. Batting first, Leinster made 240-06 which Sandyford fell 24 runs short of, being dismissed for 216 ao (Sanjoe 35, Amandeep 33).

 Nets will not take place in our ground tonight. This is the Park's recommendation due to ongoing concert preparations.

Anto (Club Secretary)

We had a good turnout of 14 teams raising over a grand for the club. Members I saw included Anto, Sanjoe, Lofty, Colin C, Steve L,  Age, Dave W, Ramji, Prem, Paul O'N, Prem, Kanwar, Ronan, Srikanth, Ray S and apolgies if I have forgotton anyone.

Thanks also to Bazil for bringing two teams and founder member Brendan MacConville who came on crutches, having ruptured an achilles playing Taverners.

Let's try and aim for 20 teams next year and more sponsors.


p.s. The quiz was won by a "quiet" team of lawyers and teachers, captained by former member Steve Tonge.
