For coming 2019 season we intend to enter a 1st and 2nd XI into the league, as well as host a Social XI. A successful 2018 season saw our first team get promoted to Division 2, whilst the new 2XI will compete in Division 3.
Our First XI team play in the Division 2 Munster Cricket Union League and Junior Cup Competitions. Captained by Charlie Bryan, the team is a mixture of more experienced players and up and coming youth players. The team gained promotion in 2018, with a strong finish that saw them win 6 of their 7 final matches. Hopefully that form will continue into 2019!
Our newly Second XI team will consist of beginner to intermediate standard who want to play fun cricket in a competitive and structured format. We also have a policy of including 3-4 of the the younger members in the squad to help the develop and become the future of the club.
2018 saw a strong league performance from our 1XI, finishing second in the MCU Division 3. The team has been promoted to play in Division 2, so we are looking to to recruit new members to play competitive cricket at an intermediate standard.
Lismore Social XI
This team is a bit more laid back and easy going, suiting all ages and abilities. The purpose of this team is to head out on a sunny day, run about a bit and try and get a few wickets, runs or catches while you are at it. In recent years we have welcomed well known teams such as RTE, The Theatrical Cavaliers, The Leprechauns, Garda Cricket Club and Mount Juliet. We also have hosted touring teams from the UK, including The White City All Stars and The Old Record Players.
If you are interested in coming to visit Lismore and playing cricket on one of the few remaining all grass wickets left in the country, then get in touch and we would be delighted to welcome you.
