Cregagh v Ards Cricket Club Under 15 XI and Graham Cup team on Wed 15 Jun 2016 at 6.00
Ards Cricket Club Won by 6 wickets

Match report Ards Under 15's 2016 league campaign eventually kicked off with an away fixture at Cregagh. Cregagh chose to bat and Nelson and Lawrie put together an excellent opening partnership of 44 before Nelson (17) was bowled by Glen Warwick. Keenan joined Lawrie who was next to depart having to retire after scoring 53 not out, a very good knock which included 8 boundaries. Keenan (14) was well caught by Ethan Davies off Eddie Hawkins and McGrath (1) was bowled by Dominic Allen as the Cregagh innings closed on 95 for 3 off the allotted 20 overs. Allen (1-8) Hawkins (1-21) and Warwick (1-14) were the successful Ards bowlers although McDaid and Parke also bowled fairly economical spells and were unfortunate not to pick up any wickets.

Ards made a steady start with Cregagh skipper Nelson bowling accurately and skipper Harry Jackson (6) was caught off Nelson in the 3rd over as he tried to increase the tempo of the innings. Ards received a second setback when Calum McDaid (3) was caught, also off Nelson, to leave Ards on 20 for 2 after 5 overs. However, Ethan Davies came to the crease and with a perfect balance of aggression and composure he played an excellent knock of 53 retired with 3 maximums and 6 boundaries to put Ards in a strong position and comfortably ahead of the required run rate. Although the wickets of Dean Parke (0) and Eddie Hawkins (2) fell in quick succession, Glen Warwick (8 no) and Craig Boobyer (8 no) batted sensibly to see Ards home on the 1st ball of the 19th over to secure a 6 wicket victory.

An excellent start to the league campaign for the guys with Ethan Davies starring with the bat but with lots of important contributions from others too.
