Dundrum v Ards Cricket Club Under 13 XI and Banogue Cup on Fri 18 Jun 2010 at
Ards Cricket Club Won by 6 wickets

Match report The U13's faced the long trek to Dundrum who are welcome additions to the league this year. The perfect setting at the foothills of the Mournes and a lovely sunny evening made for perfect playing conditions. McCaughan and Paul Kerr bowled a very good opening spell without getting any reward and opener Cullen (10) was the first batsman out caught of the 1st delivery of Conor Balfour's spell. Rooney (0) fell shortly after with Balfour again the bowler. Symington then came to the wicket and made an excellent 26 including a 6 and 2 4's. After Ferguson caught and bowled opener Taylor who batted very correctly for 9, it was time for Andy Kerr to take centre stage taking 3 wickets in 4 balls including top scorer Symington. After a run out in the last over Dundrum's innings closed on 66 for the loss of 7 wickets.

Andy Kerr with 3 for 2 and Conor Balfour with 2 for 9 had the best bowling figures for Ards.

Despite the early loss of opener Hughes for 3 bowled by Symington, Joel Ferguson and Robbie Ingham made steady progress until Ferguson fell to Hutley for 10. Ingham (11) and Warren Martin (11) kept the score ticking over before both were retired to give some of the other batsmen the opportunity to bat. Although Kissock (2) and Cairns (3) fell quickly after, and McCaughan and Nutt were also retired, Conor Graham and Paul Kerr saw Ards home with 3 overs to spare to pick up their 1st victory of the season.

On a warm summer evening, orange juice and crisps gave the Ards boys the perfect send-off before the long journey home.

The Dundrum boys shouldn't be too discouraged by this result as they played some good cricket and they will benefit greatly from playing regular league fixtures.

Also well done to the Ards boys on a good win but next up are North Down so no time to rest on your laurels.
