Ards Cricket Club Lost by 51 runs

Match report On the Monday night Ards met Newforge in a rearranged league match in the T20 format. Newforge batted first on winning the toss and posted a lofty 187-7 off their 20 overs, thanks mainly to Hamza (51) and Ramakrishnan (57), with Conor Balfour taking 3-50 and Sean Francis 2-22. In reply Ards got off to a disastrous start with both Smith and Stewart out in the first over. There followed an excellent partnership of 78 between skipper Roberts (30) and Matt Hulbert (43) which briefly offered hope of a successful run chase. When both fell in quick succession the rest of the batting order failed to fire sufficiently, though both Crawford and Francis hit 16 apiece. As the overs came to an end Ards finished on 136-9, losing to Newforge by 51 runs, a result which offers a setback in Ards quest for promotion.
