Dundrum travelled to play Waringstown in the quarter final Quoile Cup at the beautiful ground called the lawn and wasn’t a surprise that they won by 40 runs even without Danny Willamson who has been scoring lots runs at under-11 writes Jeffrey Maquire.
Dundrum backed their talented team by winning the toss and batting and played as team by scoring 126 for 7 wickets with good solid batting from Calvin Buckley 27 Stephen Campbell 22 Matthew Fegan 19 Jedd Campbell 17 and wicket keeper Joshua Maguire 17 and Edward Martin 9 .
Waringstown have a fantastic junior set up and would be hard to beat on their home patch but Dundrum coaches Mark Davis Ken Mcnerlin Rahi Kakade Deshmukh have been putting in the extra hours as they know this team still has 25% more improvement to come and the fielders backed up the bowling unit with great catches from Jedd Campbell and Matthew Fegan add the fact that they have so many bowlers and all rounders its certainly going be hard pick the Player of the year as each week someone steps up.
The team knew everyone needed to bowl well to secure the win. Calvin had 4 tight overs for 12 runs Jedd Campbell 4 overs 1 maiden 1 for 26, Stephen Campbell 4 overs 2 wickets for 12 runs.
Matthew Fegan had 4 overs 2 wickets for 17 runs to sneak the Man of the Match by getting the dangerman out. Edward Martin had 1 over for 6 and the wicket keeper got to bowl Joshua Maguire 1 over for 7.
It was fitting that Tom Crudgington bowled 2 overs 1 maiden 2 wickets for just 1 run to win the game as he breathes cricket and set up a semi-final away to Donaghcloney.
With competition for places this team can compete against the best as the U-11 team remain unbeaten in their league section so they have secured a semi final play off at home against section A in August.
Dundrum Cricket Club has a thriving junior section with super facilities and very hard working coaches that emphasise playing as a team and not individuals and that is the main reason all the U-11/13/doing well this season. The U-15 too are unbeaten in the league, and there is no better place to bring your child to learn cricket than The Meadow as there are also free one to one sessions with any coach. The club has their first ever 2-day tour to Ayr in Scotland involving the U- 15 team to play two games, and plans already are under way for an U-11/13 tour next year.
