Venue change for first game of Inter-Provincial Championships

Match moves to Pembroke CC

The venue for the first match of the 2018 Hanley Energy Inter-Provincial Championships on 1 May 2018 has been moved from Oak Hill to Pembroke Cricket Club.

Following recent poor weather in Wicklow, the ground is not currently ready to host First-Class cricket and, as such, the decision was taken to seek an alternative venue

Philip Smith, Cricket Leinster General Manager, said: “We hugely appreciate the support of Pembroke CC in agreeing to host this important fixture at such short notice. It reflects the strong community spirit which exists at Club level within the province”.

The first match will see defending champions Leinster Lightning take on the North West Warriors, in what is set to be the last hit out for the men before the announcement of Ireland’s historic first Test Match team.
