North Kildare Cricket Club Men's 2nd XI v Longford 1 on Sat 27 Apr 2013 at 13:30
North Kildare Cricket Club Lost by 114 runs

Match report Seconds stumble in opening fixture

The scoreboard isn't misleading in anyway and the seconds were soundly beaten in their opening fixture of the season. That said, there were highlights, almost all of which were provided by skipper Neil Vorster.

Roughly 27 overs into the season Vossie took what will probably turn out to be the catch of the season diving backwards to take a ball that had already gone past him. He took a second spectacular catch to remove the penultimate Longford batsman as well as snaring three wickets for himself and scoring an unbeaten twenty-four as the rest of the Kildare side collapsed around him.

Other high points were tidy bowling spells from Futter and Dalton along with good catches in the deep from O'Neill and Futter.

The rest we'll put down to experience and hope that we get better as the season goes on.

A warm welcome to Lucy Small and Jack Hurley. Today was Jack's first game of competitive cricket for North Kildare, but he fitted into the the seconds' team spirit straight away.
