Peebles County Cricket Club 2nd XI v RH Corstorphine 3rd XI on Sat 28 Aug 2010 at 1.00pm
Peebles County Cricket Club Won

Match report A patient innings by the skipper and astonishing bowling figures by loyal compatriots Kie Ramsay, The Sandy Man and Jon McCosh ensured that P2 ended its season on a positive note.

Once again Angus WM won the toss and put Corstorphine 3 in. Kie’s first ball took out danger man, Alan Moore, who made a century in P2’s previous encounter, with a dazzling diving catch. After that only big hitter Bryan Potter gave the home side pause, especially during a mini-partnership with Joel Diamantis. The Swanster was accurate but victimless and Niall Burns had an expensive spell. And then came The Destroyers, ruthless in their efficiency and rock solid in their determination, with Jon taking four wickets for 10 in seven overs and The Sandy Man three for seven in two.

Even on Whitestone Park’s summer pudding surface, 69 was not a stretch. However, Niall Burns, coming in at No 2 because he had to leave early, gave Moore an easy catch on his first ball, and young Ally Sadler, bowling left arm and moving the ball across the right handed batsmen, started as he aimed to continue, with two maidens. Angus WM settled for the long haul, with Murray P forcing the odd short one through the covers. C3’s bowlers were tight and accurate, helped by a turning wicket. Potter’s off spin was particularly difficult, with many deliveries keeping low. His figures of nought for nine in nine overs say it all. When Murray P was trapped LBW by Hamish Duncan, both Rich Adams and The Swanster, depressed by the slow pace of runs, attempted to hit out with dire consequences. Kim WM joined his dad and together, after 40 overs, brought P2 home. It was, by no means, a doddle.
