The Minor Cup is the seventh tier cup competition, with the 2015 edition of this venerable trophy having its final in Laois Cricket Club on August 22nd. The competition is one of the older on the provincial circuit, with the first edition of the Minor Cup being won by YMCA 4 in 1926. A new competition, aimed at a lower level of cricket was instigated in 1986, and fittingly that was won by another YMCA side, YMCA 5.
Division 6 ended up in one of the most exciting league finishes of the season, and as such it is a little difficult summarising the season, knowing that the denouement was probably all that mattered
Division 8 was split into three distinct parts. There were three clubs who were battling to escape the drop (see below), there was Leinster 4, and there were five teams chasing Leinster 4
Knockharley 3 and Castleknock 3 made the early running. Castleknock won their first four matches and Knockharley being 5-2 on June 22nd
Before we get too far in to this update I feel it is important to set the scene as to what exactly Division 6 cricket is about and who the players are. Some may say this may have been more useful at the start of the season but what are you gonna do, life is life and pancakes are lovely.
