After the first weekend of NCU cricket this season, Muckamore captain Sam Gordon has been named as Robinson Services and D&P Cricket Player of the Week.
Having taken over the captaincy for this season, Gordon led from the front as he scored 58* in Muckamore’s total of 116/7 before taking 3/7 as the Moylena side picked up a narrow two-run Robinson Services Trophy victory over neighbours Templepatrick.
That performance means that Gordon will be the first recipient of a £50 voucher to spend on D&P Cricket equipment.
