N. Down 2 v Ards Cricket Club 1st XI on Sat 01 Jun 2013 at 1.00
Ards Cricket Club Lost by 9 wickets

Match report With Garry Stewart unavailable, vice captain Paul Cox lost the toss and was asked to bat by North Down skipper Andrew Haire. Some tight bowling from the evergreen Billy Adams and the much younger Davidson saw the first 5 overs pass uneventfully, with just a solitary boundary from Balfour leaving the score on 12-0 after 5 overs. Davidson then took 2 wickets in successive balls at the start of the 6th over. This heralded the start of a batting collapse which, had it not been for some great running between the wickets and some great boundaries from the bowling pair of Ryan Patterson (11no) and Pete Devlin(22), could have seen Ards finish on a total much less than the 90 all out they achieved.

Ards set about defending their low target well, with Devlin striking in his erratic first over to remove opener Irvine. This brought North Down captain Andrew Haire to the crease to join ex-Ardsman Gavin Anderson - son of Ardsman Neil, and grandson of the late Jimmy Anderson. These 2 batsmen took the Ards bowling attack on, and with young Anderson looking particularly impressive, they surpassed the meagre Ards total in just 14.3 overs.

Ards - 90 all out (28.4 overs) P Devlin 22, P Davidson 3-26

North Down 2nds - 93-1 (14.3 overs) G Anderson 40no, A Haire 29no
