Bangor v Armagh - 19th August
The U13s travelled to the Mall in Armagh for the quarter final of the NCU U13 league knock out stage. Captain Ryan Chambers won the toss and batted first, with Kai McPeak and Daniel Young opening the batting. Armagh started well with captain McCall conceding just one run from his first over and sending a ball whistling past McPeak’s nose before getting through his defences soon after for 1. McCall struck with his very next delivery to remove Andrew Pyper with another quick ball. Chambers and Young dig in and managed to build a platform to fight back from. Both batsmen kept the score ticking over steadily, but after Chambers was caught off Nicholl for 22, the middle order struggled to get the ball away to get the run rate up towards the end of the innings. Nicholl struck again removing Young for 24 as he tried to finish the innings with some aggression. Conor Cox and Josh Webster saw Bangor to 4 for 60. Credit must go to both McCall and Nicholl for their impressive bowling throughout. In reply Armagh were given a challenge of their own in the form of Chambers who opened with two tidy and quick paced overs. Cox and Adam Bell battled hard for a breakthrough and there were chances, but they were either just out of reach or couldn’t be held. It was the introduction of McPeak’s leg spin on a green pitch which made the difference with McCall popping up a catch to Young. Soon after Young struck, bowling Rainey without scoring. Jennings, dug in well to keep the score moving and Nicholl swiftly notched up the winning runs to see Armagh home by 8 wickets. By no means a walkover, Bangor pushed Armagh until the end with good work in the field making the batsmen work hard and with ever threatening bowling.
Bangor v North Down - Friday 19th July 2013
On Friday night Bangor’s U13s took on North Down at Ward Park, with North Down batting first. There was immediate action with opening bat Walker chipping Conor Cox to the safe hands of Josh Webster at behind square leg in the first over. In the very next over Adam Bell struck with Johnston top edging one to Zach Kerr at point. In the third over Cox struck twice more with Robinson caught by Daniel Young at Cover and two balls later with Kai McPeak taking the catch behind square on the off side. The next over was a quieter affair as Bell battled against a tricky wind. But it didn’t stay quiet for long with Cox taking a further three wickets in his third over with Young, Kerr and keeper Matthew Quinn taking the catches. Quinn’s catch was particularly impressive, standing close to the stumps. Conor finished with the staggering figures of 6 for 7 and Adam 1 for 12. The introduction of the change bowlers was a moment of excitement and intrigue. Young and McPeak both recent converts to the art of leg spin and neither disappointed Kai struck first with a beautiful leg break that turned back from outside leg to knock back Boyd’s middle stump. Daniel struck with a fabulous caught and bowled to end the innings with North Down playing a man short. Chasing 25 to win, openers McPeak and Young batted with great sense, but that didn’t stop them playing some impressive shots, including three consecutive fours for Young, to wrap up a fantastic win in the third over. A fantastic performance all round from Bangor and a wonderful spirit from both teams throughout the match. Another victory should see Bangor into the knock out stages of the U13 competition.
Bangor v Dundrum - Friday 28th June 2013
Dundrum under 13 team lost to Bangor by 26 runs with Ryan Chambers top scoring with 24 stylish runs Andrew Pyper 11 and Josh Webster & Conor Cox both scoring 9 not out. Dundrum had started well with Edward Boyd getting a run out with direct hit and Stuart Campbell bowled tidily 4 overs for 12 runs. Captain Andrew Foster was again on the money with four overs 1 wicket for only 3 runs and the three under 11 bowlers all tried hard as the extra four yards makes it tough for the under 11s but they all tried hard. Calvin Buckley 4 overs for 17, Spike Davis 4 overs 1 for 21 and Philip George 2 overs for 11 and nearly a very good hard hit catch of his own bowling Edward Boyd showed improvement with 2 overs for 8 runs as Bangor scored 77. Dundrum fielded 7 under 11 players so it would take the top 4 to get the runs but only Stuart Campbell 17 got double figures. Man of the match Conor Cox bowled superbly with excellent figures of 5 wickets in 20 balls for just 8 runs. Chambers took 2 for 14, McPeak 1 for 6 and McIlmail 2 for 6 as Dundrum scored 51 losing by 26 but the biggest cheer of the night went out to 7 year old Matthew Foster who fielded well scored his first of many in his career.
