Dundrum Cricket Club whose ground is the most picturesque in the country situated at the foot of the Mourne mountains, have recently received planning permission for a new two bay enclosed net facility which will be a massive help in the coaching of the juniors and seniors at the Club.

The hard-working club committee will seek funding from Newry Mourne and Down District Council and various funding bodies as they strive to push forward on making The Meadow into a much-improved place to play and coach cricket.  The ground is completely different now since the square was turned around and the boundaries extended.  The Club have also recently installed a fantastic new state of the art electronic scoreboard and with more drainage planned this is a very progressive club fully committed to providing the best facilities for their members and visiting clubs.  

The 2021 pre-season spring weekend tour to Shropshire is still very much in the plans subject to Covid restrictions and Wellington Cricket Club Under 18 team is also planning to visit Dundrum in July.

Last year's much shortened season due to Covid was strange as it proved how much the club love cricket as instead of a shortage of players the Club had to arrange extra fixtures for the newly formed 3rd team.  The club have now entered a third team into the Northern Cricket Union and will it be captained by new secretary Andrew Hammond which is great as this provides plenty of opportunities for juniors to get some experience.  Last season it was also great to see three ladies play in the team and that’s another plus for the village club.

Anyone looking to join or sponsor the club contact Jeff Maguire  or use face book Twitter or the club website. ROLL ON SPRING
