RUSH

  • Captain: Neil Rock
  • No overseas player
  • Players in: Ehtesham Ahmed 
  • Players out: Stephen Doheny , Noman and Shahid Iqbal,

While Rush will have to do without the services of Stephen Doheny who has moved to Merrion, there's the feeling that the club's renowned youth structure offers plenty of promise in the years to come.

Former Irish international Allan Eastwood is optimistic as the new campaign dawns.

"I believe this season although we want to be very competitive but it is also about following up on the great youth world that Lynal Jansen and Sean McCann have done over the past number of years. Introducing the players who are now 16/17/18 into the 1st and 2nd teams hoping and expecting that they will make big contributions towards good team performances.

"There are plenty of young players who will hopefully be knocking on the door of playing first team cricket with Brandon Morris and his promising off spin bowling being at the forefront, and also Ryan Stirrut with his leg-spin.

"I also expect Neil Rock and Nathan Maguire to have good seasons as they have been improving year on year, and have been starring in the Northern Leagues which began last month."

Rush start the season with a home game against Leinster on Monday, June 7th.
