On a scorching June day, the Cargilfield men took the field against local rivals Fettes, who made the short trip from Stockbridge. Orhan lost the toss and we were put into bat. Fred on debut opened with the skipper and got the team off to a flyer. Joseph and Leopold played some elegant off side shots which showed the improvement the squad has made over the first half of term. Some powerful hitting from Oliver and James pushed the total on to 101 off our 16 overs.
Fettes reply never really got going through some fabulous bowling from Orhan and exceptional ground fielding, catching and throwing from Paddy and Leopold. The Cargilfield men restricted Fettes to 51 in reply. It was a fabulous team performance, however player of the match had to go to the skipper Orhan who scored 39* and contributed with figures of 0-3 off his two overs. Well done, chaps!
