MC - Minor (Lindsay) Cup

Bangor 3rd XI v Muckamore 3rd XI NCU Junior League 4 - Saturday 10th August 2013

Last Saturday Bangor 3's played host to Muckamore at Upritchard Park.

Muckamore skipper Nathan McCurry won the toss and decided to bowl first.

Bangor got off to very good start, Jack Elliott & Matty Wilson batting well, until Wilson was caught behind. Bangor then lost 3 more wickets in quick time & from 39 without loss in 7 overs, were in trouble on 43 for 4 after 11 overs. This brought to the crease the ever dependable Satti, and along with the steady Elliott, put on a 60 run partnership in 12 overs. Whenever Satti was dismissed for 31, the good work continued with Steve Smith & Elliott putting on 31 in just 5 overs. The Bangor innings finished with the comical run out of Matty Kennedy in the 33rd over with the score on 149.

Muckamore's batsmen didn't know what hit them, Bangor's opening pair,  Jack Elliott & Andy Beech were like men possessed. The first ball of the innings beat the outside edge at pace, the third one knocked out the off stump. Beech's first over, a maiden, beating the bat 4 times. The first ball of Elliott's 2nd over saw the middle stump cartwheeling, narrowly missing the wicket keeper. Not to be out done, the first ball of Beech's 2nd over, an inswinging yorker, uprooted the middle stump. The 5th over saw Elliott take his 3rd wicket, the next, Beech took his 2nd, and after 6 overs Muckamore were reeling, 13 for 5. The openers finished their spells, and after 14 overs the score was 27 for 6. The next 5 overs were tightly bowled by George Prince & Matty Kennedy and the visitors could only manage 11 more runs before they ran out of batters.

Bangor won comfortably by 111 runs.

Bangor 149 all out in 33 overs,  J Elliott 53,  A Satti 31

Muckamore 38 all out in 19.1 overs,  J Elliott 4-20,  M Kennedy 3-3,  A Beech 2-7

Bangor 3rd XI v Waringstown 3rd XI NCU Junior League 4 - Saturday 20th July 2013

Last Saturday, Bangor III’s & Waringstown III were involved in a tense & exciting last ball match at a sunny Ward Park.

Waringstown skipper Beattie called the toss correctly and decided to bat first. They got off to a good start with a 40 run opening partnership in 9 overs and by the end of the 20th over were 91 for 2 wkts. A very tight 10 over spell then followed, Ballinger & George Prince only going for 25 runs in this period. They were ably backed up by Capt. Kwelu, with the skipper taking 2 spectacular catches in the slips. All the bowlers chipped in, taking wickets at regular intervals, Waringstown however, did fight back in the last 5 overs and ended their 35 overs 170 all out.

After Tea, Bangor set about the chase. Despite losing the early wicket of Lowry, Mike Kwelu & Mike Hatch put on an 80 run partnership, and at 20 overs Bangor were 99 for 2, Kwelu dismissed for 39. All was well, Hatch at one end ticking over nicely, Neil Bates then Abdul Satti at the other end scoring freely & Bangor were always just ahead of the required rate. At 30 overs Bangor were 150 for 3, 21 needed off 5, at 33 overs Bangor needed only 5 runs for victory. Inexplicably, in the following 11 deliveries, Bangor could only score 2 runs. 3 runs required off the last ball for victory....would you Adam & Eve it...we didn’t get anything off the last ball, Waringstown win by 2 runs.

Waringstown 170 all out in 35 overs A Beattie 50 A Satti 3-30, M Rooschuz 2-27

Bangor 168 for 5 in 35 overs M Hatch 63* M Kwelu 39 A Satti 22 N Bates 20

Bangor 3rd XI v Ballymena 3rd XI NCU Junior League 4 - Saturday 13th July 2013

Last Saturday, Bangor III’s played host to Ballymena III at Upritchard Park. Ballymena Capt. called the toss incorrectly & Mike Kwelu decided to make use of a strong batting line up and bat first.

Despite the early departure of Elliott & Hamilton (Elliott having been dismissed by an unplayable delivery, pitching a foot outside off & clipping the off bail), Bangor did get off to a reasonable start, 40 for 2 after 10 overs. Matty Wilson was batting beautifully along with Josh Lowry, scoring at a good rate until Wilson pulled his Hamstring and had to retire hurt. Josh Lowry however, continued his good work, and with a nice cameo from Jack “Mad dog” Murphie and a belligerent knock from Jamie Mackenzie, Bangor completed 35 overs with 175 runs.

After Tea, Bangor set about the Ballymena batsmen. Apart from Andy Lyttle, their top order struggled against Bangor’s opening attack. When Lyttle was dismissed for 43, there was very little to come, but Bangor, who like to do things the hard way, kept them in the game with an excessive amount of extras (42 in total), with all bowlers struggling with their line & front foot placement (with the exception of Ross Garrett, who for the 2nd week running bowled impeccably). Despite some big hitting & frantic running at the end, Ballymena were always just behind the rate & were bowled out in the last over, 8 runs short of their target.

Bangor III’s had achieved a long awaited victory.

Bangor 175 for 7 in 35 overs. J Lowry 62, M Wilson 32 ret hurt, J Mackenzie 26

Ballymena 168 all out in 34.4 overs. R Garrett 7-0-17-3

Waringstown 3rd XI v Bangor 3rd XI NCU Junior League 4 - Saturday 1st June 2013

Thirds narrowly fall to Waringstown

Bangor thirds put on a brave display but fell short against a strong Waringstown side. Waringstown scored 149 for the loss of 7 wickets with A Beech taking 3-18 and Ross Garrett 2-31.
Bangor fell 18 runs short in reply.

Bangor 3rd XI v Muckamore 3rd XI NCU Junior League 4 - Sunday 26th May 2013

Last Sunday Bangor III’s travelled to Muckamore for a re arranged league fixture. Bangor won the toss & chose to bat first.

After getting off to a steady start, 3 wkts were lost in quick time, leaving the score on 31 for 3 after 8 overs. There were 2 crucial partnerships, firstly between Mike Hatch & Ross Garrett, who put on 30 runs and then Mike Hatch & James Griffin, again with a 30 run stand.

These two partnerships allowed Bangor to reach a total of 126 for 9 off 35 overs, Mike Hatch with a very impressive 41 & James Griffin 13 not out, the latter having played the shot of the day, a glorious extra cover drive for a boundary 4.

Muckamores’ openers made better use of the facilities, despite some tight bowling from Mike Kwelu, they never looked in too much difficulty, putting on an 87 run opening partnership in 19 overs. But then Arman Sirpal got the breakthrough, trapping McCurry LBW and after a change of ends, Ross Garrett chipped in with 2 wkts in his 5th over, 3 falling in 2 overs. Sirpal took 2 more wkts in his next 2 overs and with score at 103 for 5 with 6 overs left, Muckamore found themselves under a bit of pressure. Unfortunately the experience of Irvine & Cathcart saw the home team across the finishing line with 3 overs to spare.

Bangor 126 for 9 in 30 overs. M Hatch 41, M Kwelu 15, J Griffin 13*

Muckamore 127 for 5 in 32 overs. A Sirpal 3-38, R Garrett 2-36

Bangor 3rd XI v Armagh 2nd XI NCU Junior League 4 - Saturday 4th May 2013

Bangor 3rds welcomed Armagh 2nds to Upritchard Park. Bangor skipper Mike Kwelu won the toss & asked the visitors to bat first.
Bangor started very well with Andy Beech, putting the ball right on the spot, but at the other end, Abdul Satti, playing his first match for Bangor, struggled with bowling uphill into a gale force wind. None the less, Bangor managed to keep the pressure on, and at 10 overs Armagh were 30 for 1, Satti taking his first of many wickets for the club. 1st change bowler Morne Rooschuz was a revelation, taking 3-17 from his 6 overs, figures that really halted Armagh's accelleration. But with the visitors skipper at the crease, he & his partner ran very well putting Bangor under a bit of pressure, and manage to score 40 runs in the last 5 overs to close thier innings on 127 for 7.

Bangor's innings started solidly with Jonny Parker & Daniel Kennedy putting on an opening stand of 40 runs in 12 overs before Parker was given out LBW. Contibutions by Satti & Ian Fletcher kept Bangor in pole position but a middle order collapse which saw Bangor lose 6 wickets for just 15 runs saw the game swing massively in Armagh's favour. Valiant efforts from Chris Boal & Ross Garrett at the end were not enough to prevent Bangor losing the match by 29 runs.
Armagh 127 for 7, Extras 34, M Brownlee 31, S Cardwell 25. M Rooschuz 6-1-17-3, A Beech 6-2-11-0
Bangor 98 all out, D Kennedy 31, I Fletcher 14, J Parker 13

Bangor Invitational (2nds/3rds XI) v Bangor Grammar School 1st XI - Sat 20th April 2013

Saturday saw the first game of the season at Upritchard Park, a 2nd/3rd XI Invitational team welcomed the BGS 1st XI to the club for pre-season fixture.
As with tradition the senior team were given the opportunity to bat first and despite the loss of an early wicket they progressed to 60 for the loss of one wicket, Gavin Campbell was in his usual swashbuckling form and dealing mainly in boundaries while Arman Sirpal worked the ball to all parts of the ground. Unfortunately the loss of Campbell and Sirpal lead to a major collapse in the Bangor batting as the BGS spin twins of Kennedy & Miller took advantage of the turning artifical! The Bangor innings was rescued by some hard hitting from Daniel Kennedy and Mike Kwelu who added 40 valuable runs for the last wicket, shot of the day came when Mike Kwelu stroked a magnificent 6 over cover from the bowling of Taj Kwelu.
The BGS innings started slowly with Mike Kwelu picking up an early wicket, however a fine partnership developed between Ryan Burgess & Taj Kwelu. Ryan was quick to punish the bad ball while Taj played sensibly throughout the innings with both batsmen reaching their 50. Bangor's bowling showed much promise with the majority of people bowling for the first time this year. Paddy English, Ross Garret & Morne Rooshuz supported Mike Kwelu in the seam bowling whilst slow bowlers Arman Sirpal and Daniel Kennedy were unlucky not to pick up more wickets.
A very enjoyable start to the season and encouraging to get some match practice before the first 3rd XI league game this Saturday. Good luck to the BGS 1st XI for the season ahead.
