The Women’s Third team this week consisted of 10 players as they took on Leinster in the first round of the Minor Cup. However the 10 of Pembroke could not repeat the league win of the magnificent seven in College Park as they lacked the fourth bowler and this cost too many runs.

Nicky Bell returned to the playing fields of Sydney Parade and rolled back the years with her athletic fielding and strong batting. It has been a while since Nicky played as evidenced by her turning up in the traditional whites rather than the pj’s that are now worn. Welcome back Nicky.
