Cricket – UCC drawn at home to Waterford in Munster Minor Cup

The draw for the 2016 Munster Minor Cup was carried out on Saturday by the MCU Cricket Committee and the results of that draw were published today. UCC were the penultimate team drawn and will take on Waterford & District at the Farm in the opening round. It will be a tough test for Shahrukh Nawaz and his team as the Suirsiders played in a higher division last year, however the familiar surroundings of Curraheen Park will be a distinct advantage for the Cork side with Waterford having failed to win an away game throughout 2015.

UCC suffered a first round exit in this competition last year despite one of their best performances of the season and will be keen to avoid doing the same this time around. The date for the fixture will be announced by the Munster Cricket Union shortly.
