Friday’s matches

There was a full card of fixtures in the two junior Friday leagues this evening.  In the Under 11 League wins were recorded by Ferguslie CC, Glasgow Accies CC, East Kilbride CC and East Renfrewshire CC on the field, whilst Clydesdale CC benefited from a concession from Prestwick CC.  Ferguslie CC’s win was over Greenock CC by 60 runs, Uzair Ahmad taking 3 for 10 as Greenock CC lost twelve wickets batting second at Glenpark.  In a slightly closer affair at Shawholm in Glasgow Poloc CC lost to East Renfrewshire CC by 22 runs, two wickets falling in the final over to see the Woodfarm Pavilion side ease to their eventual win.  East Kilbride CC’s win was another away win on the night, this time at Scott Ellis Field against Kilmarnock CC and the winning margin 61 runs.  Another big winning margin was Glasgow Accies CC’s 87-run win over Renfrew CC, Rory Paterson top-scoring for the New Anniesland youngsters with an unbeaten 22.

In the Under 15 League there were wins reported for two of Glasgow’s southside clubs: Clydesdale CC beating Stenhousemuir CC at The Tryst, and Poloc CC seeing off Glasgow Accies CC, also on the road.  Spookily both sides won by 51 runs, Clydesdale CC’s win owing much to Daniel Cairns 52* (39), whilst Sohaib Shah’s 133 (65) was the main reason behind Poloc CC’s win.
