In the older Under 15 age-group, Clydesdale CC were nine-wicket winners over Stenhousemuir CC, Humza Zulfiqar taking 3 for 13 as the youngsters from The Tryst were bowled out for 78.  Angus Guy (53*) then led the home side to the win inside eight overs.  In the clash of the combined sides at Glenpark, it was the Ferguslie|Kelburne side that came out on top against Greenock|Helensburgh, 33 runs the margin of victory.  Cameron MacLean (67) and Scott Glassford (45) both made meaningful contributions to the visiting side, whilst Lukas Fischer-Keogh made 41 not out in a losing cause.  Clydesdale CC’s nine-wicket win wasn’t the biggest winning margin however, Ayr CC beating West of Scotland CC by ten wickets in their clash at New Cambusdoon.  John Greene’s 31 not out wasn’t enough to prevent the visitors from Glasgow posting just 58 batting first, and Ayr CC raced to their target of 59 in under six overs, Richie Simpson with 35 not out, and Jack Lynch 23 not out.  The final Under 15 League match result reported this evening was the very opposite to the matches at Titwood and New Cambusdoon, Poloc CC and Glasgow Accies CC playing out a tie at Shawholm.  Batting first, Poloc CC posted 78 for 5 with Abdul Malik scoring 48 not out, a total Glasgow Accies CC matched, nine down, with Christopher Holdstock ending up unbeaten on 30.
