Bright future ahead for Merrion as Minor Girls win cup!

Posted by MCC ADMIN (SH) on 19 July 2018


The Minor Girls beat Rush to claim the cup for the first time in Merrion's history. 

Before the team headed off to the northside they managed to have a team meeting where they picked the batting order and managed to compose a new Merrion song.

The girls bowled first and restricted the hosts to 84/9 after a wonderful team fielding performance. Leaving Merrion needing to chase a total of 39 for victory after 45 runs were subtracted for the loss of nine wickets.

Our girls all batted wonderfully and Merrion reached a winning total of 99/2 from their 20 overs. 

The team went back to Merrion to celebrate their win with pizzas and helped cheer the Women's 1s to victory against Leinster with their coaches Tilly and Izzy putting on a show for the cup winners

Congrats to the girls and a special mention to manager Lesley Light and to youth development officer Izzy Joyce.

The future is bright.
