The Hills won the RSA Irish Senior Cup for the second time in three years on Saturday as they beat the holders Clontarf by just nine runs in a thrilling contest at a packed and sun drenched Castle Avenue.

In a match which ebbed and flowed throughout, the experience of Hills skipper Nazeer Shaukat (3-40) and Irish international Max Sorensen (3-50) proved crucial in a nail-biting finale.

Chasing 240 for victory, Clontarf lost the early wickets of Mark Collier and Colin Currie with just 18 on the board, but a solid third wicket stand of 77 between Andrew Poynter (41) and Bill Coghlan (40) brought their team right back into contention.
