Cricket: Stafforce Dumfries beat East Kilbride

7 07 2014

In the Western Premier League on Saturday, Stafforce Dumfries had a convincing 92 run win over East Kilbride at Nunholm.

A Captain’s innings of 49 from the Roger Lever Photography Man of the Match, Stuart Corbett-Byers, was instrumental in Dumfries recovering from the loss of early wickets at 62 for 5. Important partnerships with Peter Lojszczyk, Chris Brockwell and Campbell Potts enabled Dumfries to reach 216 for 9 after the 50 overs.

In the Western Premier Reserve League away at Torrance House the Bryce Walker Man of the Match was Russell Johnston who was out on the last ball for 67 in an Eco-Genics Nunholm total of 176 for 7.

That total was reached with partnerships throughout the batting order and it proved enough as Torrance House were dismissed for just 57, 119 runs adrift, with Davie Davidson taking five wickets, Jerry Goodin three and Mark Irwin two. The win moved Nunholm into third place.
