Cricket: Beveridge and Byers batting display in vain

Bevo smacks a boundary

On Saturday in the Scottish Championship against Poloc at Benfield Park Nunholm, Dumfries’s Scott Beveridge and skipper Stuart Corbett-Byers hit 85 and 78 not out respectively in APD Dumfries’s testing total of 241 for 7 in 45 overs. Then the rain finally set in and the match had to be abandoned without a further ball bowled.

Dumfries’s Niall Alexander returned from injury to play for Scotland U15s in the ECB Championship this week. Scotland played away against Herefordshire and Shropshire and Alexander had a promising return taking one for nine in his opening spell against Herefordshire. Scotland U15s play the return match against Shropshire at Benfield Park Nunholm next Monday, July 25th where Niall will be hoping for a Scotland appearance on his home ground.

Tom McBride has been preparing with Scotland U19s for the U19 World Cup qualifiers in Ireland which start next week. The squad travel on Sunday with their first competitive match, one of nine fixtures, against Canada on Thursday.

The skipper hits over the top
