Cargilfield 156 – 3
Belhaven 100 all out
A very enjoyable match in glorious sunshine, fit for a Royal Wedding!
Cargilfield opted to bat first and despite losing the wicket of Hugo early on, an impressive stand between Adam and Logan saw both of them retire on 25 not out and set the base from which Cody and Seb could score freely and also make their full complement of runs in quick time. Aggressive running and good calling between the wickets was the order of the day, allowing us to post a challenging total.
I was very impressed with the intensity in the field that followed in the Belhaven innings. Cody kept wicket well, making one stumping and there were some super catches from Murray, Oli and Adam (the latter being the best catch of the day to win the match!) There were a number of strong bowling performances from Oli, Seb and Logan with Murray managing to claim a hat-trick: a feat that most bowlers never enjoy in their whole careers.
Well done to Finn for managing his field confidently and to all the team for the focus that they showed in restricting Belhaven to 100 all out. I thoroughly enjoyed my afternoon with these boys.
