Ballymena IV v Ards Cricket Club 3rd XI on Sat 29 Aug 2009 at 12pm
Ards Cricket Club Won

Match report Ards captain Daren Paterson, playing his final match before hanging up the boots called correctly and sent Ballymena in to bat.

It was a good start to the game, both openers being removed thanks to Ryan Burgess and Pete. The Ballymena middle order stuck in, but the lower order gave way to some good bowling from Gavin Anderson (6-2-11-2). Graham Hamilton bowled a great 7 over spell, creating pressure from one end as Ballymena's batsmen searched for quick runs. The total of 116 was below par on an astro strip.

Ards openers Adam Balfour and Jonny chanced their luck early on, before Adam was caught at mid-off on the drive. Number 3 Ronnie Balfour (24) and Jonny put on a quickfire partnership of 40 before Ronnie was trapped lbw by Martin. Ards then lost the wickets of Sam Ingham and Daren Paterson who both fell without scoring. Then Jonny's innings came to an end- one short of the 50 run mark and Ards had collapsed. Pete and Stuart Dempster hit 4 boundaries in a crucial stand and Brian Burgess (6*) and Gavin Anderson (5*) steered Ards to the win.
