Friday’s matches

Ayr CC’s two junior league matches with Poloc CC were both cancelled today as a result of the recent wet weather.  Also not played was the Weirs CC versus Prestwick CC Under League match, the Ayrshire club conceding the match.  And, another Ayrshire side, Kilmarnock CC, also had a week off this Friday, its Under 11 clash with East Renfrewshire CC being rescheduled for 1 September 2017.

The games that were played in the WDJCU’s youngest hardball league saw wins for Clydesdale CC over East Kilbride CC (by 10 runs), Greenock CC over Glasgow Accies CC (by 59 runs) and Stenhousemuir CC over Uddingston CC by 38 runs).  Clydesdale CC’s win saw Fizan Rashid take 4 for 9, whilst the match between Greenock CC and Glasgow Accies CC featured the unusual event of an Under 11 side losing no wickets, Greenock CC scoring 81 without loss batting second at Glenpark.

In the Under 15 League both the combined sides in action this evening came out on the losing side, the Ferguslie|Kelburne side going down to a 89-run defeat to Clydesdale CC in Paisley, and the newly-formed Renfrew|West of Scotland combination team losing by 54 runs at The Tryst.  Clydesdale CC’s win featured Asad Khan (78), Daniel Cairns (45) and Ross Heginbottom (50*) all making contributions with the bat, Heginbottom’s unbeaten knock seeing him face just 23 deliveries.  In the combination side’s reply, Cameron McLean was again in the runs, scoring 69.  Meanwhile in Larbert, Stenhousemuir CC’s win featured 44 (29) from Kai Reed and a “3-for” for Callum Grant.
