Dumfries - Grangemouth Tournament Winners

Dumfries – Grangemouth Winners

Dumfries Women won their first indoor tournament outing of the year with three wins to claim first spot at the Cricket Scotland sixes tournament at Grangemouth on Sunday.

The side beat Edinburgh University and Stirling County in their Group games with disciplined bowling and fielding restricting their opponents and Rachel Howard setting the standard by taking a special caught and bowled in the very first over against the University. In each match openers Kirsty Strachan and Rosy Ryan took charge of the run scoring to win with an over to spare.

It was a South-West final as Dumfries took on Galloway but Dumfries were able to continue the pattern. Galloway scored 41 for 2 in their five overs with Sue Jeffrey marking an impressive debut clattering the stumps to take 1 for 3. Then Strachan and Ryan again saw the Nunholm side home with an over to spare. They along with Captain Sue Strachan and Kelsey Paterson were able to collect their winner’s medals after an encouraging outing. The Parkdale Garage Dumfries Player of the Tournament went to Kirsty Strachan for a mature performance with the bat and in her debut behind the stumps.

Womens and Girls sessions continue this, and subsequent Sundays, indoors at Max High Sports Hall, 11:30-13:00. Newcomers are encouraged to come along for a try. Contact or see for details.
