On Saturday morning a schoolboy player from Sullivan Upper School scored 204 not out in an Under 15 cup match against Regent House.
The schoolboy in question is Mark Adair and his innings took place on the upper pitch at North Down Cricket Club in Comber. Once he had reached his double hundred he retired in the 19th over with one over to go in the innings.
To follow up his performance with the bat, in the afternoon he turned out for his club side Holywood and helped them to a 13 run victory over Woodvale by clean bowling the last 3 batsmen.
Mark’s coach at Sullivan Upper, Paul Osborne, is wondering if this score is an Irish Schoolboy record or if it is a record for a 20 over a side match?
Mark represented the Belfast Inner Cities side last season and in 2011 is a member of the Northern Cricket Union’s under 15 interprovincial team.
