Cork County v North Kildare Cricket Club Men's 1st XI on Sat 25 Jun 2016 at 1.00pm
North Kildare Cricket Club Lost By 9 Wickets (0/25pts)

Match report June has been a tough month for the 1st XI with results not going their way, despite on occasion being in a good position to bring a positive result home, it hasnt happened. In Cork the month came to a most disappointing end with a very heavy defeat at the hands of NKs hosts. On winning the toss NK opted to bat first on a decent looking Cork track. After a slow but steady start against good opening bowling Neavyn was run out to a direct hit, after which the wickets began to fall on a regular basis as the 1sts struggled to get any kind of a grip on their innings. In the end NK were bundled out for a paltry total of 87.

Needless to say if the 1sts were to stand any chance of defending this total they would have to take 3 or 4 very early wickets to try and put some pressure on Cork. Paul Ryan did manage to remove the Cork no.1 with the very first ball of the innings but there was to be no more joy for NK. Grobler, who was under no real pressure given his teams target, took the attack to the NK bowlers in a manner that suggested he wanted this game done and dusted quickly. He batted well for a rapid 50 and Hassett at the other end looked solid, if a little uncomfortable against the pace of Hofmeyr at times, as the pair took Cork to the their target with ease.

All in all a dreadful day at the office for the NK men and not one they'll be dwelling on too much.
