North Kildare Cricket Club Men's 1st XI v Clontarf 3 on Sun 11 Aug 2013 at 12:30
North Kildare Cricket Club Won By 9 Wickets (25/25pts)

Match report The firsts looked to beat Clontarf and get back to winning ways after a couple of disappointing results.

NK were off to a bright start as Neayvn won the toss and put Clontarf in to bat. What a toss it was to win! Within the first eight overs, Immy and Tom had asserted their authority; Tom bowling opener Kilbride, Immy bowling no.3 Delaney and then, Tom taking an absolute blinder to his right off his own bowling. With the score on 13/3 off eight overs, Clontarf were looking down the barrel. With a partnership desperately needed, NK put the foot down on the throat and didn't allow Clontarf a way back into the game, largely due to Wazzie, who took his first 5-for, for the club. Wazzie bowled with great control, bowling three of his victims, Walshe taking a good catch at first-slip and trapping no.7 dead in front. Wazzle left the score on 60/8 after his five wicket haul, which brought Manny to come on and wrap up proceedings. Manny took the final two wickets (including opener who offered the only real resistance) for not a single run.

Job one done exceptionally well and NK were straight back out after ten minutes to chase 64. Rob and Immy opened up and Rob was back in the hut after slapping opening bowler, Delaney for four, then nicking off the very next ball. This brought Manny to the crease. There was no playing about from the pair - Manny taking his time and Imran playing in his usual fashion, playing his shots with great execution. The pair easily knocked off the target, Immy ending on 40 NO, from 24 balls (6x4's, 1x6's) with Manny ending up on a no-nonsense 14 NO out from 28 balls. NK running out winners by 9 wickets, with 40 overs to spare.

So - the firsts record their tenth league win of the season, but know that their remaining games will prove much more of a test than today's.

Next up - Civil Service away in two weeks, in what should be, a very tough game.

Congratulations to Wazzie on his first club five-four, it really is well deserved and it has been coming. Many more, please Waz!

Thanks to Gerry for scoring and for all who helped with tea and drinks.
