NCU Under 13 Trials

This week we wish Adam McCormick and Mark Johnston every success as they head off on trials with the Northern Cricket Union flying the flag for Cregagh.

Their coach David McCormick commented, "these two lads have set the standard this year and proves to everyone else within the squad that if you work hard you can reap the rewards and that at Cregagh we wont be shy at pushing your talents at a higher level" comments echoed by the committee.
Good luck lads and enjoy yourselves!

NCU Under 11 trials

As the NCU under 11 trials take place this week we would like to wish our boys well as they fly the flag for Cregagh.

Stuart Nelson, Lewis Cunningham, James Hume and Daniel Larmour have been put forward for the trials with the Northern Cricket Union taking place this Thursday and next Thursday, under 11 coach David McCormick commented " these lads have really stood out this year and deserve a crack at the NCU trials this year.The whole team has been brilliant this year and it would be a great end to the year if one of these players was to make the grade. I have every confidence in them and believe they will raise a few eyebrows within the NCU."

The committee would certainly echo David's comments and wish them luck, do yourselves proud lads!
