Jeff, you're a legend! It's true I've never played at Dundrum more's the pity. I think you guys will do ok. Your results last year showed you can play and a pro will help.
With D McCann away to Derriaghy will mean they have their first decent cricketer without a 'Van' in his name. The grapevine says they have replaced the Van Der Merwe brothers with Ford Van Transit and Hertz Van Hire both were living in the Boucher Road. Rumours have it they're working in a KFC. Apparently it's a specialist job and those skills can only be flown in from the Cape or Northern Transval or something. Any sign of local boy Freddie Van Der Burgh to pick up his player of the year from 2005 yet?
No thanks Jeff. I expected you to offer the bet which is why I told you I'm not a gambler. I'd worry all season about it. If you do better I'll be the first to congratulate you.
Again, good luck.

As for Mister New York Jeff another beaten favourite at 10/11. i hope you hadn't the kitchen sink in it.
is it getting near that time for league position predictions?? always makes interesting reading. Straight to the point there Mark, yeah Dundrum will find it tough and i am sure survival is there aim for this season, it is a big jump, but who knows. There are a lot of teams in that league with similar ability and it might come down to whos pro is better to see who survives.
If you recall Downpatrick nearly scored 400 last year against CSNI who are now talking themselves up for a title push. Could we see them scoring 500 against Dundrum? More than the fish will be gutted if they do, eh Jeff?
Jeff you'll need more than a nice wee ground and a great place to enjoy cricket to survive in this league. Downpatrick will hammer you and you'll be lucky to win more than two games! Good luck as you'll need plenty of it. These websites are great for bumming and blowing as you find out when you read them back after the season is over. I'm not a gambler (don't have the money) but Dundrum would be at least 500/1 to win this league.
jeff i was just looking at the fixtures and i am on holiday for the game at our place. Our boys might stand a better chance of a win with me away. Any new faces down in dundrum this year then?
paul. the banter between us & downpatrick will be SPICEY as their is nothing better than DERBY GAMES!!& home from racing & cant BELIEVE im up £ as all the tips i posted nearly all lost thank god for BETFAIR & betting in running as won 500£ sat but drank most off it but kept back 20£ for TAITOs bet! realy do agree that strangford road is top ground & ill wager this win lose or draw we will leave plenty£ over the bar as lt will be good to have the craic with new clubs this season. mister new york will win kempton tuesday.
Taito and Jeff if the derby matches are half as entertaining as the banter then there'll be a lot of fun and I'm sure a few drinks irrespective of the results. I've been to the Strangford Road and it's a lovely ground and from what you say Dundrum is also beautiful. If only they'd bring back the old County Down railway!
paul: it must be south sown speak or something thats why i understand jeff.
Jeff: I will have to consider that bet, it might make it interesting. As far as Leni saying that Dundrum are a village cricket team, well you now have the opportunity to prove him wrong.
Jeff if you know me at all you will know that any wages from CIYMS went straight back over the bar and probably more, it was just a ploy to increase the bar takings lol
paul. ive been on beer since thurs & dont understand my ULSTER SCOTCH LINGO myself, but im SURE TAITO KNOWS ITS only a bit of BANTER! IM just looking forward too the season starting as DUNDRUM are in section 2 for their first & hopefully not the last time.3 winners today at DOWN ROYAL DAN GEORGE. WEXFORD LADY ROBERTA & FLIRTING AROUND. well TAITO U TAKING THAT WEE BET?????
Good article with Barry Chambers. Makes you appreciate what goes on these days and although he's paid for some of it there's no doubt a lot of what he does is at his own expense.
As for Jeff Maguire and Dundrum I'm sure I'm not alone in saying I don't understand the half of it. Is Taito some sort of translator?
u 2 r sum crac!
Having played 8 seasons in section 2 NCU can i say that it will be very tough for any side to win. Like NCU Section 1 there are two noteable sides to look out for but this does not mean they cannot be beaten. Holywood im sure surprised themselves last year proving that the section 3 winners/promoted sides cannot be underestimated.Anyone about to play in Sect 2 will find an extremely competitive league but an enjoyable one devoid of all the pressures Section 1 brings.
