Cricket: Dumfries Women at Edinburgh

27 03 2012

On Sunday the Dumfries Women’s side travelled to Edinburgh on the weekend of Sport Relief. There they competed in the final Cricket Scotland 6-a-side indoor tournament of the winter with ten teams from around Scotland taking part.

They were unable to repeat their unbeaten record from the last indoor tournament and registered two wins and three losses.

In the group stage they were beaten by the eventual winners, Edinburgh University, and St Boswells, both of whom got revenge for defeats last time, and lost out off the last ball against Glasgow Accies which meant they had to be content with a final play-off match.

However overall the side had two wins against Kinross and Galloway and gained more valuable cricketing experience in only their second competitive outing.

The Parkdale Garage player of the tournament for Dumfries was Kirsty Strachan for runs, wickets and some committed fielding.
