Cricket: Nunholm value for Bothwell win

18 05 2011

All-round performance from Davidson

Site Electrical Nunholm registered a 58 run win in their home match against Bothwell in the West SNCL Reserve League on Saturday.

The key partnership of the Nunholm innings was when Davie Davidson came to join Farries with two down for forty. The experienced pair looked set to go past the hundred partnership when Dunne got through the Davidson defences three short of his fifty.

The side continued to lose wickets, with Farries out for 69, and it required an enterprising 28 from Telfer to push the side to 219 when he was the last man out in the final over.

The tale of the Bothwell innings was that of their opener Kamran who proved to be the best batsman on show. However two good catches swung the match. Jack Barnes took the third wicket when Howard took a sharp slip chance with ease and then Douglas Brotherston casually caught a screamer at mid-off to dismiss Kamran for 78 out of a then total of 99.

Thereafter the bowlers worked their way through the Bothwell line-up with Barnes taking four wickets, and Niall Alexander, two. Bothwell ended on 161 with the BB Body Repairs Man of the Match going to Farries for his top score.

APD Dumfries will be hoping to get on the park after last weekend after they made the trip to Renfrew for their Premiership match only to find the ground declared unplayable. Likewise, but without the journey, their Murgitroyd Twenty/20 match away at Selkirk on Sunday was cancelled.

This Saturday the side are at home against Edinburgh Accies whilst Site Electrical Nunholm travel to play Partick at Hamilton Crescent. Brammer Dumfries play at Ayr in the West Sunday League.

The club welcomes new players; senior, junior, women and girls. Senior training takes place on Tuesdays and Fridays and junior and women/girls coaching is on Monday evenings. For details contact Trefor Williams on 01387 256455 or see www.dumfriescricketclub.co.uk .
