Ards Cricket Club Under 13 XI and Banogue Cup v Instonians A on Fri 04 Jun 2010 at
Ards Cricket Club Lost by 121 runs

Match report The U13's faced Instonians A knowing that their opponents were the hot favourites to win Section 3. Ards made an early breakthrough when Ross Martin bowled Dolaghan for 2 and things looked even better when Jonny Harris bowled McNamara for 9. However Poland and Johnston then put together a good partnership and upped the run rate cashing in on some loose Ards bowling. After the loss of Poland (37) to Harris and Johnston (29) to Conor Balfour, Luke (48no) and Darling (24), who fell to Joel Ferguson in the last over took Instonians A to a daunting total of 189 for 5 wickets after the allotted 20 overs.

Unfortunately for Ards, Instonians' bowling was just as good as their batting and Mairs took the early wickets of Ross Martin, Hughes and Harris to leave Ards struggling. Despite a good knock of 24 from Joel Ferguson, wickets kept falling at the other end as the Ards batsmen struggled to cope with some excellent bowling from Johnston and Kerr. Jamie Kissock (7), Graham Cairns (7) Stuart McCaughan (6) and Robbie Ingham (7) were the only other batsmen to make any impression on the scorebook as the Ards innings closed on 68 leaving Instonians A comfortable winners.

The Ards boys shouldn't be too discouraged by this result as they were playing a very good team with strength in both batting and bowling departments. Next up are newcomers Dundrum and the Ards boys will be hoping to get their first win of the season.
