Fitzwilliam @ Terenure College July 20th 2022

In a rearranged game the Walnut Taverners welcomed Fitzwilliam LTC in a rare midweek fixture.

The pitch was both fast and dry from the recent heatwave with plenty on offer for bat and ball.

Batting first the Walnuts put up an above par score with strong contributions from Damian, Josh, Garret, Gerry. But Fitzwilliam showed their athletic prowess to restrict the Walnuts from posting an unassailable total.

In reply Fitzwilliam batted consistently throughout their innings and always stayed ahead of the run rate and eventually the Dublin 4 side surpassed the Walnuts total with 2 overs to spare.

As always, Fitzwilliam were sporting and affable opponents and both teams enjoyed pizza afterwards in the rugby club (tip of the hat to Damian).

We look forward to our 2023 fixture against the cricket team of this most famous of tennis clubs.
