Ards Cricket Club Under 13 XI and Banogue Cup v Cooke Collegians on Tue 09 Aug 2016 at 6.00
Ards Cricket Club Lost by 20 runs

Match report Ards U13's eventually took to the field to play Cooke Collegians in a match originally scheduled for May but which had been postponed on 3 earlier occasions due to poor weather. Cooke batted first and with Ards giving 6 bowlers the opportunity to bowl Akarsh (19), Shukla (17) and Graham (26) were the best of the batters as Cooke posted a good score of 120 off the allotted 20 overs. Wicket-takers for Ards were Noah Greenauld (1-9) Alex Miller (1-28) Dharesh McCarthy (2-26) and Ross McCaughey (1-12) with Dominic Allen unfortunate to pick up a wicket in a good opening spell into the wind.

With the light already starting to fade the Ards batsmen began their reply well with Alex Miller and Dominic Allen taking the score to 36 in the 7th over when Miller (14 including 2 boundaries) was bowled by Shukla. The score had moved on to 50 when Allen (20 including 3 boundaries) followed his opening partner back to the 'shed' unfortunately run out attempting a quick single. As Ards tried to up the tempo Ards lost their 3rd wicket when Greenauld (19 with 3 boundaries) was bowled by the returning Shukla. Despite a good effort in the rapidly deteriorating light from Dharesh McCarthy (14 not out) supported by his partners Curtis Ewing (5) Harry Crawford (3) and Ross McCaughey (2no) Ards fell 20 runs short of the required target as Cooke secured a welcome victory.

Due to a combination of the poor weather and the inability of other clubs to get teams on the field this may be the U13's first and possibly last competitive match of the season but this was a good effort by the Ards boys (and girl) and several of the team made valuable contributions with bat, ball and in the field.
