Robinson Services and D&P Cricket Player of the Week – Max Burton

Due to bad weather during the week, only five matches were played across the Robinson Services Cup and Trophy over the weekend but it still produced several fine individual performances.

The latest winner of the Robinson Services and D&P Cricket Player of the Week, and therefore winning a £50 voucher to spend on equipment at D&P, is Cliftonville Academy’s Max Burton.

Burton scored 61 of his side’s 122/5 before taking three wickets (3/26) but it wasn’t enough to stop Downpatrick recording a seven-wicket victory.

It has been a great start to life with Cliftonville Academy for Burton, who moved to the club from Carrickfergus alongside Matthew McCord ahead of the 2020 campaign.

He scored 87 in his previous innings against Ballymena, helping Cliftonville Academy to one of their three season victories heading into a final fixture against title-chasing Derriaghy.

Honourable mentions:

  • In the same game, Paul Tate scored 59 for Downpatrick to help secure a victory that leaves them sitting in fourth heading into the final weekend.
  • Yet another honourable mention for Armagh fast bowler Ben Mackey who collected figures of 4-8 and very nearly picked up a second hat-trick of the season in their win over Ballymena.
  • Matthew Lyttle was also in the runs again for Donacloney Mill, hitting 57 as his side recorded an impressive 31-run win over Cregagh.
