Under 12 inter-area update

Tim Hart reports, “Sunday the 20th of August was the final date of scheduled matches in the 2017 Under 12 Inter-Area Tournament, with Ayrshire hosting North Glasgow, and Clyde hosting South Glasgow.  At Scott Ellis Playing Fields (Kilmarnock CC), Ayrshire dismissed North Glasgow for just 50, in fifteen overs, with Jamie Kerr (Ayr CC) taking 3 for 11. In reply, Ayrshire reached the target for the loss of 3 wickets, in seventeen overs.

“Meanwhile, at Meikleriggs (Ferguslie CC, pictured below), South Glasgow batted first and scored 128 for 6 in their twenty overs. In reply, their Clyde hosts were always just behind the required rate and finished 115 for 4.

“The area group not participating in this round of fixtures was Lanarkshire. However, they did manage to play a game too – playing a friendly against Perth & Kinross, at Torrance House (East Kilbride CC), which was won by the visitors.

“The results mean that South Glasgow finish top of the standings for 2017. Congratulations to them and their coach Rodger Cairns – but, most pleasingly, eight of the ten scheduled tournament matches have taken place, with Ayrshire and Clyde planning to re-play their match previously cancelled match next Sunday too.”
