Aug 8 – Welshpool v Cae Glas II


Toothy on his way to 82. I put the performance down to a contented married life……

Welshpool were off to a flyer after being put into bat, punishing errant Cae Glas bowling. Nick Davies (60) and Russel Cadwallader (81) putting the hosts in control and enabling the home team to reach 268 for 5 off 45 overs. Two wickets each for Mike Edwards and Ian Holgate were just rewards for Cae Glas as late wickets stemmed the flow with Welshpool threatening to set a 300+ score.

The Cae Glas reply was steady and untroubled as the openers put on 50 for the first wicket but after Woody was caught for 29 two more wickets followed. Any ideas of a home victory evaporated as Pete B and Toothy put on a fine 4th wicket partnership. Bowyer went on to make 50, and Ian a majestic 82 not out – despite a painful broken finger!

Cae Glas finished 188 for 6 as the game ended in a draw
