Testing away league trips for Dumfries

28 04 2008

The home SNCL match against RH Corstorphine on Saturday was called off due to the rain. Two matches were completed in the league with wins for Dunfermline Knights and Edinburgh over Stoneywood-Dyce and Weirs respectively so Dumfries are playing catch-up already.

This coming Saturday the firsts, APD Dumfries, play away at Preswick and the seconds, JMS Nunholm, start their Western Union league campaign away at Ayr 2nds. The Sunday side, Garrison Nunholm, play in the Western Union Sunday league for the first time at home against Queens Park.

The SNCL match might have been off but the barbeque and band were on with a healthy turn-out and a busy night for the bar and some doubtful preparation for the friendly the next day on the part of some.

Langholm were unable to get a full quota of players to play the seconds on Sunday so an intra-Dumfries match took place on a pitch which was distinctly damp in patches, thanks to water draining onto the wicket under the covers, but which actually played alright. Team 1 beat Team 2 in a ‘dramatic’ finish after they were apparently cruising to victory. The match scorecard can be seen on cricinfo (perhaps!).
