Player Profiles: Senior Men’s VC Cormac McLoughlin-Gavin

Today’s player profile is the one and only Cormac McLoughlin-Gavin and is sponsored by Olive Skerries, thank you for your continued support ☕️

Name + nickname: Cormac McLoughlin-Gavin (Cormo/Beef/LeBoeuf)

Age: 26 years old

Favourite batting shot: Pull shot

Bowling type: Right Arm Off-Spin. Still trying to turn one!

Debut for the senior team: Terenure Away in July 2012

Best memory in hills colours: Winning our 2nd All-Ireland Cup in 2014. The last ball run-out in the 2013 T20 final is a very close 2nd though!

Worst memory in hills colours: Losing the All-Ireland in 2017 to Waringstown. Still hurts!

Favorite player you’ve played with: Naseer Shoukat.

Player you wish you got to play with: I joined The Hills just after Bryn Thomas was with us and have been told by many club members that he would have been great for me!

Favorite ground you’ve played in apart from the hills: Eastcote Cricket Club, London

Funniest thing you’ve seen on the pitch: I once captained a school’s game for Gormanston where I had to teach a group of 10 classmates the rules of cricket so we could field a team.

My friend Conor (a keen golfer) went out to bat for the very first time and set up outside his crease. The opposition wicketkeeper suggested that it might be an idea to stand behind the white line. Naturally, Conor didn’t need any help. First ball he executes a beautiful full golf swing, misses it completely, holds the pose for the cameras, and is out stumped without troubling the scorers.

Unsurprisingly we lost the game.

Goals for future: Win plenty more trophies with The Hills and play for Ireland at senior level.
