Weekend May 23rd-24th
Saturday saw both the 1sts and 3rds going down to defeats. The 1sts were well beaten by Clontarf by 136 runs. The home side made 225 in their innings, the highlight of which was Anto Burke taking his 900th wicket for the club, a feat unlikely ever to be surpassed in the current era of restricted overs per bowler. Sandyford never looked like chasing down the total, losing wickets at regular intervals before being dismissed for 89.
The 3rds game was a closer affair with Sandyford making 161-8 off 40 overs, with Rhys Waters top-scoring on 31. Leinster made the total in the 38th over with 5 wickets to spare.
Better luck for the 2nds on Sunday who had the closest of wins over Phoenix 4ths. Set 159 to win, Sandyford made it with only one wicket in hand, Anand Joshi top-scoring with 31.

The 3rds travelled to Meath to play Knockharley. The home side batted first and put on 129-6 following tight bowling from all seven Sandyford bowlers, David Gray leading the way with 6-1-22-2. Sandyford never looked like making the total following the fall of early wickets and only Ihsan Ullah (19) and Arun Nambisan (10*) made double figures, Sandyford being dismissed for 59.
