Challenge Cup Final

Friday 5th August 


The Green, Comber


This Friday the 1XI take on CSNI in the NCU showpiece final

It is always a fantastic final, and a great occasion in the local sporting summer

A tough task awaits Nigel and his team, but it’s a competition they thoroughly enjoy

Tickets can be purchased online via the link below, or on the day at the ground

£8 online for Adults

£10 on the gate

Under 16s go for free

We sadly have no control over the prices as this is an NCU event

With Juniors going for free we would love to see a huge turnout from all our youngsters, supporting and cheering on some of the guys who have coached them through the season

It is a huge day for the club and we need to see plenty of CI colours around the boundary, so make sure to wear some Blue and Black

For former Presidents, Treasurers & Office Holders we would encourage to wear a CIYMS tie if you have one

There a bar facilities at the ground, and usually hot food, coffees, ice creams as well

History Makers!

On Sunday the 1XI became the first CI team to make it to the Irish Cup final in our club’s history

Away at Phoenix they triumphed by 6 wickets in a rain shortened game to secure their spot in the All Ireland final

John Matchett continued his burgeoning romance with the Cup, top scoring with 55 and taking 3 crucial wickets in the first innings

Phoenix posting 116-9 in their 25 overs, 2 wickets a piece for Allen Coulter on his return from injury and 2 for Keith. The target chased it down in the 21st of the reply for the loss of 4 wickets

The final is scheduled for Saturday 27th August at Bready Cricket Club, Magheramason on the banks of the Foyle

We will face up against Lisburn Cricket Club who defeated Clontarf in the other semi final
