Aaron M. Bailey

Aaron was a vital member of the 1st XI squad in 2013 and was a member of the RSA Leinster Cup Final winning team. Scored his maiden senior century (108*) for the 2nd XI versus North County 2nds at Claremont Road. Has now turned his arm to bowl left arm slow.

In 2012 Aaron was a squad member of the Leinster U17 squad after a couple of very good years for both the successful 3rd & 2nd XIs at Claremont Road. Forced his way into the 2nds as an opening bat and can be called upon to break up opposing partnerships with his left-arm pace. Easily one of the best fielders in the Club, covering the ground quickly and taking excellent catches in the deep. Also a very good hockey player representing Leinster in that code as well, however 2013 could see a major step in cementing his name on the 2nds teamsheet while progressing to grab a spot on the 1st XI.

Another pupil at St. Andrews College.
J.J. Cassidy

2013 saw JJ push his way into the 1st XI and for most of the season was the man with the gloves. Was a squad member of the Cup Winning team and is currently in the Irish U19 squad.

JJ came into the 2nd team mid-way through the 2012 season and cemented his place with a great display behind the stumps against Clontarf in Castle Avenue. Is a genuine wicket-keeper, with good hands and can look forward to the 2013 season with great confidence. In his final year at St.Michael's College.
Rajesh Chawla

Rajesh has recently moved from Old Belvedere CC where he captained the 1st XI in Division 2 during the 2011 season.
Lee C. Cole

Lee is one of four very talented Cole brothers who have made their mark in both cricket and hockey. Lee has been a prolific schoolboy cricketer at YM, representing Ireland at U13, U15, U17 & U19 level.
Made his senior debut in 2009 and is a top order bat. Has all the shots in the book just needs to occupy the wicket and the runs will come.
