Cae Glas I v Wellington III – 23 August

Cae Glas I slipped to a 4 wicket defeat on Saturday at Gatacre against fellow mid tablers Wellington 3rds. Having been asked to bat first, the Glas’s top order woes continued as they were reduced to 15 for 6 against Surrey league import Steve Brookes who took 4 for 18 in 13 overs of top seam bowling, ably supported by Naz Akhtar who took 3 for 20. Only a late rally from Aidan  (25), Tim T (21) and Yappy (18) brought the home side some respectability as they closed on 93 for 9.
 
In response, an early breakthrough from seamer Tim T, and a sustained accurate spell which brought him 4 for 20 gave the Glas a glimmer of hope, but Wellington hung on to reach their target for the loss of 6 wickets. Robin Edwards, making his Cae Glas debut, got his career off to a good start with 2 for 21 from 8 overs of hostile quick bowling.  Good to have you in the side, Robin!
