Update on progress on the registration of players - one week on.

Every year throws up a division that is closer than all the others, and this is it. Some one is going to be unlucky to be relegated, someone will rocket up the table after a couple of wins in August, and there will be a battle royal at the top. All we have to do is to try and find out who will fill which role.

Some users are experiencing problems when attempting to use the new Direct Player Registration system, with Internet Explorer 8, and with phones and tablets. More recent versions of Internet Explorer (9, 10 and 11) are working correctly, as are all other browers on PCs and Macs (eg Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Opera etc). We have been told that the problem should be fixed by early next week. Apolgies for any inconvenience caused

Can those stalwarts of middle government Rush 3 finally realise their potential, or will they be disposed of in a ruthless fashion?

The start of the new season is upon us. Some changes in league structures.

Gerry Byrne continues his series on Leinster Senior Cup Finals with an account of Leinster's second win in the competition in 1941 against Dublin University.

Another preview, another set of excuses. Division 11 for 2014 is like the first day of school. There will be a number of teams who vaguely recognise each other, but the vast majority have never met before, and will spend the first term warily circling each other.

The announcement of the new arrangements for Player Registration

Coaching staff from the Leinster Cricket Union will soon be running the above workshop for Secondary school teachers. The course will cover areas like batting, bowling, fielding/games and will also involve a separate scorer’s course for interested teachers and/or students.

Cabinteely CC are now recruiting for their new youth section, and are running a camp for u13 boys and girls in April

Division 12 looks like being a league of two halves this season, with the nine teams nicely dividing up in to a perceived bottom four, and a top five based on a bit of guesswork. However, I predicted the winner of this league last year, so lets try again!

Another in the Series on Leinster Senior Cup Finals since 1935
