McCutcheon hits out for Nunholm

In the Western Premier League on Saturday, Stafforce Dumfries lost out in the rain when West Of Scotland exceeded the adjusted second innings total scoring 187 for 3 for the win in response to Dumfries’s 219 for 8.

The South West Insulation Dumfries Man of the Match Drew Dawson top scored with 63 together with scores of 34 from Chris Brockwell and twenties from Chris Bellwood and Scott Beveridge.

Dumfries were in a good position with West of Scotland on 58 for 3 in the 21st over with Niall Alexander, Pat Druce and Alan Davidson each claiming wickets. However a 129 run unbeaten fourth wicket partnership between Clarke and Leggat then put paid to their hopes.

In the Western Premier Reserve league match at Nunholm against Partick the elements also played their part. Nunholm scored 150 all out thanks to scores of 37 from Adam Elliott and 36 from the JKC Engineering Nunholm Man of the Match Chris McCutcheon.
