Sandyford Cricket Club
Weekend May 2nd/4th
The 1st's game on Saturday against Longford was postponed due to the rain as was the 2nds game on Sunday against the Hills as the pitch was deemed unplayable.
The 3rds traveled to Bagnalstown on the Monday. Put in to bat on a soft wicket, the innings was going well and we were 59-03 at drinks. 17 runs later for 7 wickets and Sandyford were bowled out for 80 with Jamie Stackpool top-scoring with 12. The home side knocked off the runs for only the loss of 2 wickets.

Weekend April 25/26th
The first competitive game of the season saw the 3rds take on Adamstown 4ths in Marlay Park. The visitors won the toss and made 165-07 and despite the additional of 10 penalty points, Sandyford were unable to chase this score down making 146-06 in reply. The club welcomed back Dave "Rasher" Ryan after a ten year absence and he formed an opening stand of 72 with Ray "Razor" Shimmins.
Dave Ryan who played for us for the first time in ten years following his exile with Dundrum.
Weekend April 18/19th
The good news is that club captain, Kanwar, is now the proud father of a baby girl, Meera (below).
Less good news on the field where in a pre-season friendly, Sandyford were well beaten by Cabinteely. The opposition batted first and made 144-04 from 30 overs. An under-strength Sandyford only made 70 odd in reply.
The first competitive game of the season is on next Sunday where the 3rds take on Adamstown. Non-starred players please post your availability in the Forum.
