Peebles County Cricket Club 1st XI v Glenrothes 2 on Sat 03 May 2014 at 13.00
Peebles County Cricket Club Lost by 5 wickets

Match report After the euphoria of the previous week's victory over Edinburgh Accies, County
underwent something of a reality check by losing at home to Glenrothes Second XI
by 5 wickets.

It had rained on the friday before the match and conditions were heavy and generally typical of early season. The decision was made to play the match on the artificial track which had remained unused since it was laid before the start of the 2013 season.

Batting first County were quickly in trouble as they lost one of their openers before Murray,for the very first time in his long and illustrious career,was run out off a wide by a direct hit at the bowlers end! Perhaps even greater damage was self-inflicted on Peebles batting aspirations when shortly after Maxwell headed back to the pavvy also run out.

County struggled thereafter to reach a decent total. To give them their due; Glenrothes bowled superbly right throughout all 45 overs that County survived.Every one of their strike force produced a relentless line and length to which no batsman save Caddick had an answer. Even his innings of 54 not out was a guarded grafting affair,in total contrast to the abandon he had displayed the previous week. It is to be hoped that County will not have to face bowling of this standard every week.

Their final total of 104 was never likely to be a winning one,but they did well to bat out all their overs.

In response the bowling and fielding was good and County did well to take five
wickets with Maxwell making up for his disappointment with an excellent economical spell which yielded three wickets.However,County conceded nearly 30 extras,an unacceptable total given that they were defending such a modest
