Schools cricket – update

Tim Hart writes, “Holyrood Secondary School hosted Belmont Academy in the latest match in the Cricket Scotland National Secondary Schools Cup. Batting first, at Titwood (Clydesdale CC), it was the visitors from Ayrshire who posted a big total – their 170 for 2 being spearheaded by a fantastic 88* from Finn Turner, with a good supporting 39* from Nari Bhandari. In reply, Holyrood Secondary School’s chase was hindered by Callum McCormack taking 4 for 12 from his four overs. Holyrood Secondary School would finish on 113 for 8. Belmont Academy’s next round tie will see them travel to Titwood again – to play Hutchesons’ Grammar School.”
