Cricketing Connections

By Ballyclare High School on 28 June, 2024



 On the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the formation of Muckamore Cricket & Lawn Tennis Club, the School invited representatives of the Club to attend a short talk on the historic cricketing connections between the two. Club President Trevor Barnett, an Old Ballyclarian, presented the School Library with a copy of the recently-published book ‘From Mill To Moylena And More – The Threads That Bind Us’ which explores the rich history of the Club from its formation in 1874 to the present day. A significant number of former pupils are closely associated with the Cricket Club and feature prominently in the book.
