New President at Railway Union Cricket Club

Railway Union Cricket Club President

LOCAL resident Elaine Coburn has been elected president of Railway Union Cricket Club for 2013.

She is the first woman president in the 109 years of the Club and with the new season at Park Avenue starting in mid-April, she sends a message of welcome to the people of Sandymount, Ringsend and Irishtown, especially the schoolboys and schoolgirls.

“As president this year, I want to ensure that Railway Union maintains its reputation as a good place to visit and play cricket, while continuing to strive hard for honours on the field of play.

“It has been a difficult number of years for the club, but I hope to help us to redouble our efforts to regain our position as the premier club in Leinster and Ireland. Like all clubs we rely on a small number of people, and I would encourage all members to spend more time improving our club – by helping with the facilities, coaching the young players, attending our vital fund-raisers or even just by supporting all the sides in the club. Drop down to watch the 4ths or the Under 13s, you’ll enjoy the craic and your support means a lot.
“May I wish all our members and friends a happy and successful 2013 season.”
