Drumaness v Ards Cricket Club 1st XI on Sat 08 Jul 2017 at 12.00
Ards Cricket Club Lost By 41 runs

Match report Ards bowled first and Conor Balfour and Jonny Harris took the new ball and both bowled tidy first spells with Balfour picking up a wicket in the third over however the two experienced drumaness batters played well and put on over a hundred runs for the second wicket with the second wicket not falling until the 30th over and the score on 135 as Matt Hulbert bowled N Walsh for 58. Drumaness were now putting the foot down in the final 10 overs but Ards kept fielding with great effort and the bowlers stuck to the task well with Hulbert clean bowling another home batsman the opening bowlers then returned and both bowled well at the death with both Balfour adding another two wickets to his total and Jonny Harris picking up 2 wickets in 2 balls drumaness innings ended on 194
Savage and Cathcart opened the batting and looked positive until Cathcart top edged a short ball to square leg off the tall opening bowler Arafat was next man in and he and Savage were on the front foot however Arafat was next man out for 12 bowled by Walsh, skipper Stewart was in at four and when he launched the bowler straight onto the football field he was looking good for his first big score of the season unfortunately 2 balls later he was caught on the boundary leaving Ards 3 down.
Andrew Savage was batting patiently as wickets fell around him but was getting frustrated at not scoring freely and chipped one to mid wicket, Owen Roberts and young Harry Jackson then played sensibly to take the score past 80 at drinks and when play resumed drumaness brought back the tall left handed and he duly picked up both Roberts and Jackson in the same over both out in the teens , Hulbert and Ingham followed cheaply leaving Jonny Harris and Conor Balfour to take the Ards total upto respectability with Harris top scoring on 27 including a huge straight six endangering the cars in the car park and Conor Balfour ending 17 not out as young Eddie Hawkins was last man out as Ards ended on 153 allout
