We won!! Well done to the lads on Saturday, despite rain and Duckworth Lewis we managed a good win against Dumfries – scorecard here. This goes a long way to helping secure our stay in SNCL Division 2. We look forward to Weirs on Saturday and hopefully another win, well done again.
Only 3 games left of the season so lets just get our heads down and do our very best to finish in the highest possible position.
I’d like to mention Fergus Black who makes his debut for the 1st XI on Saturday, he has looked very good at training so deserves his chance in the team.
Another bad day for Freuchie Cricket Club on Saturday, another average display in all departments! We probably gave West Lothian an extra 30 runs due to some errors in the field, but at half time we were still confident of chasing down their score of 196. Scott Galloway once again was our main runs scorer, but even he will feel disappointed at not finishing off the job in hand, going for 64. With plenty of batting still to come, we needed somebody to take responsibility to win the game for us, sadly there was no one up to the challenge and we fell agonisingly short by 3 runs.
This week we have the long journey to Dumfries, where we will find another tough test of our resilience. Its been a few years since we played them but history tells us that these games are usually tight affairs.
Due to work commitments, Jock Wallace has dropped down to the 2nds as has Andy Sutherland. Their replacements are Dale Cowan and Graeme Christie, who makes his 1st XI debut this season.
Congratulations to the 2nds who won their game against Livingston on Saturday.
