The Firsts’ season continued its disappointing start as we slipped to a 5 wicket defeat to Division 2 new boys Prees.
Once again the toss proved crucial as Cae Glas batted first and found it difficult to score against an accurate spell of bowling from the visitors. Phil Richards, who bowled through his 15 over spell non stop, finished with a creditable 3 for 19. Skipper, Steve Williams weighed in with 3 for 39. Only a late stand of 52 between the two Tims -Turner (36) and Morris (23)took the home side to 134 -9 in their 45 overs.
In reply Cae Glas found it difficult to apply pressure as the Prees openers took advantage of some loose bowling and John Groom (39) and Norman Ball (23) saw the visitors home with 10 overs to spare for the loss of 5 wickets.
