For coming 2021 season we intend to enter a 1st 2nd and 3rd XI into the league, as well as host a Social XI. A successful 2020 season saw our first team win their league in Division 2, and the 2XI topped the table in Division 3. The 2XI & 3XI will both compete in Division 3 in 2021 – so we look forward the the inter-club match!
Our First XI team play in the Division 2 Munster Cricket Union League and Junior Cup Competitions. 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. The team won the league in 2020 in a truncated Covid season. Hopefully that form will continue into 2021!
Our Second XI team will consists of beginner to intermediate standard players who want to play fun cricket in a competitive and structured format. Captained by Renny Abraham, the team was very competitive in 2020 – topping the table in Division 3.
Our Third XI team is newly created for 2021, and will consist of mainly beginner, but also intermediate standard players, wanting 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.
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.
