PSNI v Ards Cricket Club 1st XI on Sun 02 Jun 2013 at 1.00
Ards Cricket Club Won by 7 wickets

Match report A disappointing loss in the cup, but hopefully now Ards can concentrate on their quest for promotion from Section 3, which continued on Sunday 2nd June with a comfortable 7 wicket win over PSNI at Newforge.

This fixture was a rearranged game, and therefore a 2020 format. Garry Stewart had returned from a weekend away early to play in this one, and had no hesitation in asking PSNI to bat when he won the toss. After a tight opening over from Sabrie, Patterson let the pressure drop somewhat by going for 14 in his opening over - only redeeming himself by taking a wicket with his last ball. All of the bowlers bowled well and the fielding was of an excellent standard - with particular mentions to the stunned look on Ian Farley's face after holding a sharp catch at gully, and also to 'Flying' Paul O'Brien whose full length diving catch could well be the catch of the season at this early stage. PSNI did not offer much resistance with the bat, with only Gardiner and Flanagan making double figures, and when Paul Cox bowled PJ Whyte for a duck in the 18th over the PSNI innings closed at 64 all out.

Ards set about their reasonably straightforward task positively with Jonathan Keenan and fresh back from university Sam Ingham opening the batting. Jonathan in particular looked in good form with what some might say uncharacteristic attacking strokes on both sides of the wicket. Sam was eventually bowled for 12, and Paul Cox and Ian Farley also went cheaply. It was left to Jonathan Keenan to knock off the winning runs with a boundary off the first ball of the 17th over. A good knock of 30no for ex-pat Jonathan whose confidence should grow as a result.

PSNI - 64 all out (17.4 overs) Patterson 3-19, Singh 2-8, Cox 2-13

Ards - 66-3 (17.1 overs) Keenan 30no, Allen 2-3
