Sat 18 August – Cae Glas II v St Georges IV

Once again Cae Glas were asked to bat first and a 100 opening partnership between Andy kemp 47 and Tim Turner 44 promised a large total. Mirroring the test side there was then a sizeable batting collapse as 7 wickets fell for 40 runs. It was only thanks to an undefeated 8th wicket stand of 63 between Shaun Southern with 38 not out and Barry Vaughan with 16 not out that a target of 206 was set. St Georges did not help their cause by dropping 9 catches of varying degrees of difficulty. Stand out bowler for St Georges was Mike Ross, getting both turn and bounce from the dry wicket to take 5-56.

St Georges reply as always started positively with a number of boundaries but with the loss of the 2 openers there was only one result possible. The opening bowling pair of Shaun Southern 3-31 and Helen Morris 2-29 strangled the middle order with batsmen 3 – 6 only contributing 10 runs. Only Mike Ross with 53 not out adding to his earlier 5 wickets looked to score runs as St Georges finished well short on 154-7 as Cae Glas continue their recent good form to secure 16 points in a one sided draw.
