Carrick win 2008 U11 Plate final
Carrickfergus won the Under 11 Plate final carried over from the 2008 season because of the rain, when they beat Laurelvale by 7 wickets at Shaw's Bridge on Monday 15 June.
Laurelvale batted first and scored 82 for 9 in their 20 overs, with opener Jamie Curran top scoring with 23. Ben Kane, Andrew Palmer and Simon Scott each took two wickets for Carrick.
Laurelvale had beaten Holywood in the semi-final of the plate at Holywood in a close game that went to the last over.
The main tournament, the 2008 NCU U11 League Shield Final will be on Friday 19 June 2009 at the Lawn starting at 6pm between Waringstown and Armagh. Waringstown are already the holders of the 2008 Quoile Cup and they are obviously out to do the double!!
There were two fantastic semi finals at the Shield last week where Armagh beat CIYMS by 8 runs and Waringstown defeated CSNI by 12 runs- both hard fought, close and exciting contests between two very competitive teams.
