Ards Cricket Club Under 11 and Quoile Cup v Lisburn on Thu 12 Aug 2010 at
Ards Cricket Club Won by 5 wickets

Match report Having completed their league fixtures, Ards U11's played Lisburn in the quarter-final of the Plate competition at Wallace Park. Ards won the toss and put Lisburn in to bat. Ards made an early breakthrough when Andy Kerr bowled Irvine (0) in the opening over but with Lightbody, an NCU U11 selection, batting impressively, Lisburn had reached 24 in the 4th over when Paul Kerr struck again bowling Glass (0). Lightbody and Getty with Lisburn's best partnership of the innings took the score into the 50's when Warren Martin bowled Lightbody for a very well made 25 which contained an impressive range of shots all around the wicket. Aaron McCutcheon picked up the next 2 wickets of Pinion (10) and Stewart (6) and with 3 run outs and Warren Martin picking up his 2nd wicket of Gilmore (0), the Lisburn innings closed at 94 including 32 extras.

Ards received an early setback when Andy Kerr (5) was dismissed by Lightbody in the 3rd over with the total on 10. Warren Martin, Ards own NCU selection, came to the increase and looked in good form hitting 2 boundaries with his first scoring shots but opener McCutcheon was next to fall bowled by Brittan for a valuable 8 runs. Martin and Paul Kerr took the score into the 50's when Lightbody bowled Martin for 14 and with Graham (1) and Lawther (1) falling in quick succession, Ards were wobbling a bit. But with the light fading an excellent partnership between Paul Kerr (26 not out containing some impressive cover drives and Jack Smith (13 not out including 2 boundaries) took Ards to a winning total of 96 with 5 wickets and just over 3 overs to spare.

This was a great team effort by the boys but special mention must go to Paul Kerr whose innings of 26no and very economical bowling spell of 1 for 6 of 4 overs earns him the MOM award.
