‘Into the unknown’ says skipper Lee ahead of tie


Not for the first time this season local cricketers will be keeping an eye on the weather forecast.

Waringstown, who played two of their three scheduled games last week, are due to face CIYMS at home on Friday in a T20 game.

On Saturday they host Galway at The Lawn in the Irish Senior Cup, this clash the most likely to go-ahead.

“There was an issue over registration between Fox Lodge and Galway so we did not know who our opponents would be until a few days ago,” said Waringstown captain Lee Nelson.

“We don’t know much about them and have been doing some homework on them but in situations like this it is al about how we prepare and play on the day.

“We have been drawn away from home in all of our cup ties so far so it will be nice to have this game in front of our own supporters.

“With the games we have managed to play I am more than pleased with the performances and results.

“James Hall is in great form with the bat with a double century and a century plus in hi slast two innings. Kyle McCallan showed also showed up well last week so at this stage I can’t ask for any more of the players.

“The Irish Cup is to the forefront of our targets this season so hopefully we can progress into the next round.”
