Bready got the All-Ireland youth competitions off to a winning start as they beat Cork County in the semi-final of the Under 13 Cup.

The Munster side were bowled out for 50 with three wickets for Dean Faulkner, two for Harry Mutch and Cameron McClay, plus one apiece for Sam Loughlin, Millie and Jodie Spence.

Openers Ben Campbell and Suyesh Kumar put on 46 for the first wicket, with Campbell hitting 6 fours in his 31.

Bryan got a consolation wicket for the Munster side, but Kumar (12*) and Sam Loughlin (1*) ensured the 9 wicket win in seven overs.

Bready will now play the winners of Instonians and the Leinster U13 champions, who are due to be decided in Dublin on Tuesday.

Cork County were to host Merrion in the U17 semi-final but that game didn't take place.

Lisburn are also due to host two matches against Bready next Monday in the U13 girls and U15 boys competitions.
