A glorious day at Gatacre on Saturday saw Cae Glas get back to winning ways with a comprehensive 135 run win over basement club Corvedale.

Having lost the toss, the innings got off to a faltering start as the Corvedale opening bowlers made early in-roads with Cae Glas struggling to 60 for 6. However, throughout the early losses, Ben H managed to hold things together with a steady 34.

It took a 70 run 7th wicket partnership between Tim M (28) and Gaz to get the innings back on track and a further late flourish and 30 run partnership between Gaz and Tim T took Cae Glas to a final total of 183 for 9 in their 45 overs. Gaz finally finished on 62 not out.

In reply, Corvedale never looked like challenging the total. Opening bowlers Tom G and Ruch soon ripped through the Corvedale defences as they were bowled out for 48.
The bowlers were ably assisted by the best fielding display of the season as the Cae Glas fielders took 8 catches to finish the game with 15 overs to spare.
