Cricket Club – 1st XI at Aberdeenshire Sat 19th May

Stew Mel  103 all out;   Aberdeenshire  104-2.

Following a good performance at Ferguslie last Sunday and a T20 win over Edinburgh Accies on Thursday evening the 1st XI travelled to Aberdeen hopeful of a strong performance.   Theses hopes were rather undone when Hayden Sweet was caught behind first ball of the match and another three wickets fell quickly.  Michael Miller batting no 5 again did his best to rescue the situation with an innings of 38 lasting nearly two hours with four fours and a six but with Greg Ruthven the only other batsman to get into double figures a final total of 103 was not enough to trouble our hosts despite Shaylen Pillay also removing the opening bat first ball of the innings.   The end came in the 22nd over with Aberdeen two wickets down.

This week’s games are v Edinburgh CC at Campbell Park, Colinton on Tuesday evening in the T20 and against Corstorphine on Saturday at Inverleith (1pm).
