    Read the report from Dundrum’s recent match, as young players like James Wright, Andrew Campbell, Matthew Douglas and Scott Symington stood up to deliver victory against Woodvale.

    DUNDRUM Cricket Club men’s 1st XI progressed into the quarter-finals of the Junior Cup with a three-wicket win over Woodvale 2nd XI.

    On Saturday Dundrum welcomed Woodvale to The Meadow looking to continue their good form and make it six wins in a row.

    However, Dundrum were missing five players and knew they would need to play well to get the result.

    Dundrum stand-in captain Scott Symington won the toss and elected to bowl first.

    Woodvale opened the batting with Wayne Horwood and Zarar Khan.

    Dundrum have opted to give youth a chance this season.

    Therefore, they opened the bowling with 17-year-old James Wright and 18-year-old Andrew Campbell.

    Dundrum got off to a fantastic start as Wright (1 for 24) dismissed Khan (0) in the third over to leave Woodvale 8 for 1.

    Horwood was joined by new batter Timothy Browne, looking to rebuild the innings. Wright and Campbell bowled a super opening spell of bowling, getting extra pace and bounce out of the wicket.

    However, the Woodvale batters dug in, slowly rotating the strike, seeing off the young bowlers.

    Woodvale managed to reach 40 for 1 from the first ten overs and looked good to begin attacking the Dundrum bowlers.

    Scott Symington came into the attack, managing to have Browne (10) caught behind by Phil Jenkins.

    Stuart Campbell (1 for 25) then had the dangerous Horwood (29) dismissed, also caught behind by Jenkins.

    Symington then began to run through the Woodvale middle order, picking up a further three wickets as Woodvale began to struggle.

    At the drinks break they had fallen to 84 for 6 from the first 20 overs.
