Hi << Test First Name >>, Your Terenure CC news this week

The season is now well and truly under way. Following the June weekend the clubs sides are having very mixed seasons. The 1st XI while struggling for results have shown some improvement over the last couple of weeks with battling displays at Waringstown, Clontarf and at home to North County. The 2nd XI remain unbeaten in the league, while the 3rd XI and Taverners XI are winning more then they are losing. The youths fixtures are also beginning to take place quick and fast at all levels. May also saw Diarmuid cycling to Waringstown to raise funds for the Youth Section, the MCCplaying a match on the hollowed (non) turf of Terenure and Dave Brennan and Sean Jennings doing a great job topping up the paint work around the ground.
Annual Subscriptions Due

Many of you will have received e-mails & invoicesfrom Chairman of Selectors Ken Brennan and Club Treasurer David Brennan over the last week or so. Can all members please ensure they pay their annual subscription asap as the running of the club depends on a steady flow of income. Subs can be paid to any member of the committee.

Tour de Nure
Diarmuid 2 - 0 The Weather
Dermot at the Gates
On Saturday 10th May 2014, Diarmuid Lynch, ably assisted by Madeline,undertook his epic140 km cycle to Waringstown CC in order to raise funds for the Youth Section. Despite hearing the weather had put an end to the fixture while close to Drogheda, Diarmuid bravely continued on his 6 1/2 hour journey and in doing so raised over €500 for the club.Anyone who wishes to make a retrospective donation can do so through Brian Dalton. Many thanks to Diarmuid & Madeline for making the trip from all at the club. Your efforts are greatly appreciated

Taverners Round Up
The Taverners team have now been in action the last 4 weeks, kicking off the season with a "net"Tom O'Brien session on Friday 9th May which was quickly followed by 3 scheduled games against Dundalk CC, the Dept of Justice and UCD CC. The Dundalk game saw a home win, thanks in the main to a superb bowling display which restricted Dundalk to 64/6 off 20. TheTerriers chased this comfortably for the loss of 3 wickets, despite the early loss of Thomas O'Brien O'Driscoll and Stephen O'Connor, with Sid Nair top scoring with 20*. Due to Dundalks use of a minibus manypints were had by both teams to celebrate the result as well as to discuss Tom O'Briens dismissal.
Unfortunately forall the weather put an end to the Dept of Justice game before it began enabling anyone interested to watch the Amlin Challenge Cup Final.John KellyNext up came UCD whichresulted in the teams 1st defeat of the season. Outclassed by a superiorteam, the Tavs did well to bat out their 20 overs, thanks in the main to a large amount of time spent at the crease by the Wizard from Wickla,John Kelly. Despite restricting College to just over 100, the Terriers were never in with a sniff finishing approximately 70/9. Highlight of the game would have to be Andre Cavanaghs drop.
Onwards and upwards from here, with the visits of Balls.ie and the Terenure Walnuts to come in the next couple of weeks, quickly followed by a Minor 2 Cup game against Phoenix 6ths.

MCC visit Terenure CC

On Friday 30th June 2014 the club was delighted to host the MCC as they took on a LeinsterMCC Flag Development XI. Terenure players were present on both sides with Ken McDonald and Conor Kelly representing the MCC and Danny Hogan and James Smith representing the Leinster Development XI. MCC batted first compiling a massive 316/5 off their 45 overs. In reply the Leinster Development side could only muster 167, 27 of which were contributed by James.

3rd XI Round Up
The 3rds have had a decent few weeks with a loss against Swords in a low scoring encounter sandwiched between 2 excellent batting displays which led to winsagainst Greystones and Mullingar.
In Greystones a Chris Walshe 98* ably supported by a brisk 54 from Oisin Farrell and 34 fromChris skipper Diarmuid Lynch led to a score of 232/7 in 45 overs. Farrell bowled economically taking 1-22 off 8 overs but the star of the show was Aaron O'Neill taking 6-44 to tear the Greystones heart out and win the game.
Against Swords in Terenure a fine opening spell by skipper Danny Hogan,taking 4-19, led the way in bowling Swords out for 99. The Terenure reply never got going and despite the best late efforts of Taimur Inam(24) and Sobuj Khan (17)couldn't get over the line, losingby 15 runs.
Again in Terenure having lost the toss and been asked to bowl there was a fine effort in restricting Mullingar to 129 all out. Aaron again was the pick of the bowlers with 3-42 with PhillipAaron Rout contributing a fine effort of 9 overs 2-8 and Danny again pitching in with 2-30.
A brisk start was made between skipper Cotter and Aaron and when Cotter got out for 26 the score was 44-1. Danny Hogan came in and kept the foot on Mullingar's throat, scoring 50 of the next 86 runs to lead the side home. With him at the end was David Gash on 1* after Aaron had been dismissed for 31.
17th May: Terenure beat Greystones by 13 runs (Scorecard)

1st XI Round Up
Since the last newsletter its been a busy period for the 1st XI with league games taking place against The Hills and North County, a Leinster Senior Cup game taking place against Clontarf and an Irish Senior Cup game taking place against Waringstown.
Following the 10 wicketdefeat to Merrion things could only improve and they did slightly with the visit of The Hills to Terenure. Despite a poor performance with the bat, being dismissed for 93, the lads battled hard in the 2nd innings managing to remove 3 of The Hills top order, thus gaining a bonus point.
This improvement continued in Waringstown the following weekend as Terenure dismissed a very Umar & Jamesstrong Waringstown for 178. Pick of the bowlers was Stephen Moreton who took 4/30, closely followed by Ken Brennan with 3/35.Unfortunately,despite the efforts of Umar Jehangir, against a very strong home attack we fell short in the batting once more, this time losing out by 68 runs.
MortsAgainfurtherprogress was seen with the visit to Clontarf in the Leinster Senior Cup on theSaturday of the June Bank Holiday. Batting first, despite being 17/4, Terenure reached arespectabletotal of 188, thanks in the main to 77 from Stephen Moreton and 40 from RuJones. Tarf
reached 106/2 in reply before a collapse saw them floundering at 140/7.Unfortunately for Terenure, Tarf sneaked home in the 2nd last over for the loss of 8 wickets. Pick of the bowlers were Dave Langford Smith with 3/29, Ru Joneswith 2/20 and Stephen Moreton with 2/35.
Monday then saw the visit of North County to Terenure. Lady Luck was definitely on the side ofTed theawaybatsman who got away with lots in the first 25 oversbeforeeventually powering off to reach 241/5 despite the best efforts of Conor Kelly who took 4/40. In reply despite a solid stand of 77 between Stephen Moreton (31) and coach Ted (57) the lads fell short by 89 runs.
Surely a win is just around the corner
17th May - The Hills win by 7 wickets (Scorecard)
