The club had a very good week with victories in both the Fife Cup and the league, unfortunately we missed out on progressing into the next round of the Murgitroyd T20 Cup. We played Cupar in the Fife Cup on a very tricky wicket and managed to overcome them without too many problems, keeping their runs to below 100. Freuchie made the target without losing too many wickets. Jock Wallace was the main stay with 42 not out. The next round should be played next week but we don’t yet know the opponent.
Congratulations to Dave Cowan who captained the 1st XI to their first league victory of the season in my absence. Freuchie amassed a first innings total of 277, Scott Galloway made 94, Scott Gourlay 56 and Dave Cowan 32. Freuchie then restricted SMRH to 115 all out, Steve Rowley was the main wicket taker with 4 for 23, Andy Sutherland 2 for 25 and Jamie McIntosh 2 for 14 against his old team.The scorecard for this match is available here.
WELL DONE LADS!!
Unfortunately we lost to Dunfermline in the Murgitroyd T20 on Sunday, hopefully we can do better against them next month in the Scottish Cup.
A special mention to the Under 15’s who won against Perth in a very exciting game during the week. The game finished in the pouring rain but Freuchie bowled and fielded very well to defend 74. The young lads are progressing very well and improving with every game.
