1st XI achieve 40/40 win at Corstorphine

Back row: C Steel, V Shah, A Tetley, J Newman, B Wilkinson, C Slater, C Miller.  Front row: K Steel, A McHoul, M Miller (capt), K McCallum.

The club’s 1st XI secured a first win in the 40/40 Saturday programme of matches arranged with Edinburgh based EPL clubs defeating RH Corstorphine by 52 runs after being put in to bat on a difficult  drying pitch.

After losing our first three bats for just 10 runs the middle order performed a rescue act so that a very respectable  total of 164 was achieved for 8 down.   RHC found the early batting equally hard against Joe Newman and Vishal Shah but never really threatened to win the game despite their own mid order recovery with Stew Mel taking the last RHC wicket with the second last ball of the game.
