Swords are on the up!

SWORDS Cricket Club had reason to celebrate this week when their first team were granted promotion to Division 9 of the Leinster League.

The new club finished just outside the top two places in their inaugural season in Division 10, but following the withdrawal of another team they have been moved up in order to maintain a nine-team division. Swords' excellent form was thanks in no small part to the exploits of their batsman Sunil Thomas who finished at the top of the batting averages for Division 10, scoring 287 runs at an average of 35.88, including the season's only century against Rush 3rds.
