Tomorrow sees the last match of the season for the 1st XI when they travel to Meigle for a game where the outcome will define the season in terms of where we are playing next season. Going into the match both sides have three wins out of fifteen completed matches with us also having picked up a two point bonus against Heriot’s in our early season match. The winner avoids relegation and could pass 8th placed Stoneywood Dyce in the league table.
Last week’s one run win over RH Corstorphine gives the team some confidence going into this match. Team photo from that match above.
The 1st XI travelled to Arbroath on Saturday with the weather threatening but the match was completed as scheduled but unfortunately with the 1sts 167 for 6 in the allotted 50 overs proving insufficient as Arbroath passed the total comfortably in the 38th over. The highpoint was Andy Appleton scoring 88 his highest score of the season.
This coming weekend sees another trip to Angus for the 1sts against Forfarshire at Forthill.
Despite an understrength 1sts being on the wrong end of a comprehensive defeat from league leaders Heriots on Saturday our league position improved marginally with Meigle who have played one less game also suffering a defeat. Next up is another testing fixture when Grange are the visitors to Inverleith.
