Peebles County Cricket Club 1st XI v Boroughmuir 2 on Sat 13 Jul 2013 at 13.00
Peebles County Cricket Club Won by 7 wickets

Match report After the heartache of the close encounter of the previous week against Selkirk and a run of poor results,County desperately needed a victory at home to Boroughmuir on saturday.This they achieved with room to spare on a scorching hot afternoon.

Unaware perhaps of the treacherous nature of County wickets,Boroughmuir's
captain won the toss and elected to field. They were quickly in difficulties
as after only two overs there was a catastrophic and unnecessary run-out. This was a hugh boon to County as the victim of the mix-up was none other than the captain himself,the very same man who had made a century in the corresponding away game back in May.

Thereafter it was all one-way traffic as Boroughmuir imploded in the heat.
County's bowling and fielding was its usual deadly self and the opposition had no answer to it.Catches stuck,smart run-outs were conjured from the slighest of error and before long Boroughmuir had been dismissed for 49.All County bowlers,
Maxwell,Webb,Gray and McCosh excelled themselves.The latter's figures of 3 for ten in his nine overs are particularly impressive.

If County perish this season,it will not be because of their efforts in the field.

The painful memories of the Selkirk defeat still resonated but Peebles were not to falter this time.Early wickets fell but unlike the previous tricky situations at least there were some runs posted.When the third wicket fell,however,there was still some tension in the air before Caddick pere and
Caddick fils dispelled it with a match-winning partnership.

A combination of rock-solid defence(all County batsmen please take note!),
impressive stroke-play and stag-like running between the wickets saw County safely over the line without further loss of wickets. With a third of the season remaining,6 games,4 of which are at home, County can be quietly confident of pulling away from the relegation zone.
