Match report Ards Colts bow out of the Cup.
Team skipper Jonny Calvin decided to bat against Instonians Colts in this 25 overs a side match played at Londonderry Park. Instonians had featured in the Schools Cup final against Foyle and Londonderry a week previously and Ards knew that they had a big task on their hands. Andrew Savage with 37 and Paul Mawhinney with 15 got them off to a good start against a very strong bowling attack. Jonny Calvin with 18 and Adam Balfour with a hard hitting 26 saw Ards past the 100 mark and an upset seemed on the cards. Sam Ingham (14 not out), Ryan Burgess and Stephen Forrest took Ards to a very respectable 127 for 5 wickets.

On fielding the Ards bowlers very quickly found themselves up against a very powerful batting side. Openers Maxwell and Alexander took 27 runs off the first 4 overs and the score climbed to 57 for 1 after 10. The introduction of Tom Donnan (2 for 11 who bowled Maxwell for 33) and Jonny Calvin (2 for 26) put Ards back in the game at 82 for 4 off 16 overs. Unfortunately at this point the two Martin brothers were at the wicket and set about the Ards bowling attack. With 5 fours and two sixes between them they took the game away from Ards with just 2 overs left.

This was a good performance by the Ards Colts in taking Instonians so close at the end but perhaps regretting the fact that 17 wides made a significant contribution to the opposition total. The other wicket takers were Andrew Savage 1 for 36 and Peter Devlin 1 for 27
