Stoneywood-Dyce v Thorntons Penicuik Cricket Club 1st XI on Sat 20 Apr 2013 at 12 noon
Thorntons Penicuik Cricket Club Lost By 114 Runs

Match report A mixed bag is the best way to describe the 1st XI’s first fixture, away to Stoneywood-Dyce, in this year’s Scottish Cup group stage.

After a long travel north captain K Steel won the toss and decided to put Stoneywood-Dyce in on a very green early season wicket. Penicuik’s bowlers responded to favourable conditions and bowled out their more experienced opponents for 179 in the 43rd over. (Ashy (3), Scott (3), Steels (2), Khalil (1) and Charleson (1) all playing their part with some excellent grabs on show to back them up)

Unfortunately the batting effort collapsed to 65 all out inside 29 overs with only skipper Steel making double figures. In the face of some tricky conditions and probing bowling it was never going to be an easy chase, but the side were disappointed not to make more of a fight after doing so well to restrict a top division side in the first innings. Reviewing the innings several batsmen will question their dismissals and the team must work collectively to address the batting.

Not to be too disheartened though our first fixture had plenty of positives and we carry this in to the two remaining Scottish Cup fixtures before the league campaign starts on the 11th May.
