With both league matches washed out last weekend the only game played was a local Sunday friendly at Nunholm against Gatehouse. The match was dominated by Gatehouse’s Chaudhary who retired after an excellent century in their 201 for 5 with Alan Davidson taking 3 wickets. Nunholm fell 7 runs short with 6 wickets left after needing 19 off the last over. A unbeaten century partnership between Geary (68no) and Johnstone (31 no) was not quite enough in the Nunholm run chase.

In National League Division 2, with just two games left, third placed APD Dumfries are away at bottom side Prestwick.

Second placed Corstorphine will be down at Nunholm for a showdown game next Saturday.
