Cup Triumph against Irvine

Posted on Monday 8th June 2009 by Colin Dawson

Accies 1st XI, with only four members of Saturday's league side present, travelled to Irvine yesterday and came back with a three wicket win having chased down an Irvine total of 205.

It seems that skipper Abhay Andar has found his miserly bowling touch again assisted by Messrs Kelso and Zai all of whom claimed two Irvine scalps [not a pretty sight at the best of times] whilst Ken Austin bagged a half-ton [plus 4 catches behing the stumps] assisted by Tanvir Singh and Himansu Mishra.

They now travel away to meet Strathmore on a date to be decided in the quarter final round.  Watch this space.

Windyedge Record

Posted on by Colin Dawson

It can't be true?  But it is!  A 143 run opening partnership between Matthew Lewis [73*] and Chris Allen [58] secured a high scoring draw for Windyedge down at Gatehouse of Fleet on Saturday - see scorecard  By my calculations that's 16 points to Gatehouse and a very hard earned 9 points for Windyedge.  Who says there's no place for the draw in the lower divisions?  Well done lads.

Richard Andrew - "The quiet man"

Posted on Friday 5th June 2009 by Colin Dawson

It's easy not to have noticed unless, like me, you religiously check all the website team scores - Randy certainly didn't employ the Anniesland town crier for his hat-trick for the Sunday Dev XI last weekend against Sannox.  Perhaps it's the salt air that did it but with figures of 5 balls bowled, 3 wickets for 0 runs [the first 2 balls must have been boring!] he promptly ended Sannox's innings and ensured an early return for the ferry trip back to the mainland. A repeat against Hillhead would be more than welcome.

Congrats Randy - an acceptance speech at the AGM in September is expected.
