Cliftonville v Ards Cricket Club 3rd XI on Sun 29 Jun 2008 at
Ards Cricket Club Won Ards III 139-5 beat Cliftonville III 138-8

Match report Ards III kept their 100% record intact with a hard fought win away to Cliftonville III at Mallusk. The Ards captain Daren Patterson won the toss and put Cliftonville in to bat on a blowy but mainly dry afternoon. The Ards opening bowling attack of Jonny Calvin and Andy Wright restricted the Cliftonville openers in their first spell of 4 overs to just 20 for 1 with Andy Wright taking the wicket to fall - bowled. The Ards captain then turned to Brian Burgess and Roy Keenan to carry on the good work of the opening bowlers, and in Roy's first over he had the Cliftonville opening batsman caught at first slip by the captain. Apart from the Cliftonville No.3 batsman C. Whitten who made 67 not out the Cliftonville side struggled to 138 for 8 off their allotted overs with the pick of the Ards bowlers being Michael Young with figures of 4-0-14-2 and Roy Keenan 6-1-21-2.

Ards began their innings with a scare when opening batsman Tommy McCullough got a top edge off his first ball, but the fielder put it down. The other Ards opener Nathan Burns was to bat flawlessly for the entire innings scoring an immaculate 81 not out. Ards lost four wickets in the space of 10 overs, which brought Jonny Calvin to the crease and he was to remain there with Nathan until the end scoring a composed 21 not out helping to push Ards over the winning line with 5 balls to spare. Ards III have now won all six matches having beaten Muckamore, CSNI, Cregagh, Holywood, Instonians and now Cliftonville and face Donaghadee at home on 6th July 2008.
