Weekend September 6th-7th 2014
A great win in their final game of the season for the 1sts over Castleknock 1 in Marlay Park. Batting first the visitors were dismissed for 128 and which Sandyford chased down for the loss of 3 wickets, with Rahman Jaberkhal continuing his good form with another unbeaten 50. Srikanth Boddu made 25 which leaves him 2 runs short of 1000 runs for the season.
A much need win for the 3rds in the club's first visit to the greyhound field in Dundalk. Ravinder Singh won the toss and put Dundalk in to bat and they were dismissed for 69 with Sankar Indraganti taking 6 wickets and Gurmeet Singh 4 catches. Sandyford reached the total for the loss of 4 wickets.
Sandyford 3rds: Back row l/r Sankar Indraganti, Chris Keene, Rhys Waters, Rajkumar Bhasin, Jamie Stackpoole, Cliff Kennedy, Anand Joshi. Front row: James L Kelly, Adrian Humphreys, Ravi Singh and Gurmeet Singh.
The 2nds made it a grand sweep of victories for the weekend at Marlay Park by beating Leinster 5ths by 3 wickets. The visitors made 101 and despite being 35-04 at one stage, a quick-fire 49* from Amandeep Sahota steadied the nerves. Srikanth Boddu took 4 wickets and may also have scored his 1000th run of the season but that remains unconfirmed.
