2nd XI Match Reports
IT’S no wonder that everyone at The Lawn is excited about the current crop of young players coming through.
Adam Dennison and Aaron Kennedy are considered two of the hottest prospects in the NCU, and they showed exactly why as Waringstown Seconds romped to a nine-wicket win over CIYMS at The Lawn on Saturday.
Chasing CI’s decent-looking total of 227 for eight, the young duo produced a remarkable opening stand of 227 in only 31 overs to take the scores level, with both scoring magnificent centuries.
Dennison carried his bat for an unbeaten 105 which included 16 boundaries and Kennedy was only out with a run required for victory. He had scored 103 and also struck 16 fours.
Earlier, another young prodigy James Mitchell was the pick of the Waringstown attack with two for 47, figures that did little justice to the impressive way he bowled. Keith Morrison claimed two for 25 while Michael Hingston made an excellent 91 for CI.
Waringstown have now won all their league matches in a superb start to the campaign under veteran captain Alan Waite. They face Cooke Collegians in the Junior Cup on Saturday, with original opponents, their bogey side Academy, having been kicked out of the competition for fielding an ineligible player.
