Cricket: APD Dumfries Team of the Year

11 05 2011

After winning the Nithsdale Sports Council award for Team of the Year at the Awards Dinner on Friday, APD Dumfries were hit by the weather at the weekend.

Captain Stuart Corbett-Byers collected the award for the side’s success in winning the Scottish Division 2 last season and the club’s biggest title. He said “it was good to see last year’s team effort from all the players rewarded with a team award”.

However he then saw Ferguslie get off to a good start in the Championship league match at Nunholm on Saturday. An attacking series of boundaries from sixteen year old youngster Darroch left the Paisley side at 81 for 1 when the rains came to subsequently end the match.

On Sunday morning rain also put paid to the Scottish Cup match at home against Renfrew. The tie will be replayed on the 29th.

The weekend’s cricketing excitement was reserved for Gatehouse on Friday where the Dumfries U12s tied with Galloway U12s in their D&G Colts League match. Chasing 73, Galloway needed three to win off the last ball and managed to scramble two to tie.

On Saturday, APD Dumfries play at Renfrew in the Championship and then at Selkirk in the Murgitroyd Twenty/20 on Sunday. The seconds, Site Electrical Nunholm, play Bothwell at home on Saturday in the West SNCL Reserve League.
