Cricket: Patterson steers APD Dumfries to Kelburne win

4 08 2010

Vice Captain Jim Patterson scored crucial runs for Dumfries

In National League Division 2 leaders APD Dumfries maintained their winning ways successfully chasing a Kelburne total of 154 all out at Whitehaugh. Professional Harper was the mainstay of the Kelburne innings and was only dismissed in the last over for 60. Wickets were shared with McCutcheon, McBride, Davidson each taking two and Geary three.

With Dumfries at 77 for 5 the team had to look to their depth of batting resources. It required the experience of Davie Davidson and Jim Patterson, in a rare batting opportunity this season, to steady the ship. Patterson was stumped for the top score of 36 with just eleven runs needed. Davidson (29 no) completed the Dumfries win by four wickets and earn the Galloway Industrial Man of the Match award.

In Western Union Division 2 the match between JMS Nunholm and Kilmarnock at Dumfries on Saturday was abandoned in the second innings due to rain. In the Strathclyde League Site Electrical Dumfries beat Hillhead on Sunday. The side, with its emphasis on giving opportunities to the club’s younger players, held Hillhead to a total of 150 all out. Michael Temlett took three wickets and Stephen Temlett two. The youthful top order had less success and it required Parkinson and Geary to usher their side to a six wicket win.
