Peebles County Cricket Club 1st XI v Musselburgh 2 on Sat 03 Aug 2013 at 13.00
Peebles County Cricket Club Won by 7 wickets

Match report County took a positive step away from the relegation zone by beating Musselburgh by 7 wickets on saturday at the Gytes.

This was an under-strength Burgh side which bore no resemblance to the one which had inflicted a heavy defeat on County earlier in the season.However,the home side were in no mood to show mercy as they were by no means fielding their strongest team.

A brave or perhaps slightly foolhardy Burgh captain won the toss and inserted County,exactly the outcome Peebles had hoped for.

With the usual clinical efficiency they dismissed the visitors for 82 well before the completion of the maximum 45 overs. All County's bowlers, Ramsay, Caddick P,Slater and Burns produced the goods and there were some excellent catches taken in the field. Pick of the bunch was Burns who returned career-best figures of 4 for 26.

Chasing down modest totals at home is a now familiar scenario for County and their response was cautious,measured but above all else effective. Murray and Cormack put on 30 in the opening partnership before two quick subsequent wickets caused some cause for concern but not much.

Carrying on in similar vein from his two previous innings Murray dug in and steered County over the line again,aided by a slightly more flamboyant knock from Caddick P. This was not a game which will have lodged itself in the collective consciousness for entertainment value,but it is a vital 20 points and a life-line.

Things are getting tight at the bottom of the league and County will face a much sterner challenge next week when they are away to Edinburgh Academicals as the season nears the "business end".
