Thorntons Penicuik Cricket Club Sunday Development XI v Kelso on Sun 04 May 2014 at 13.00
Thorntons Penicuik Cricket Club Lost by 7 wickets

Match report After winning the toss, skipper Sean Taylor elected to bat first.

On what was a fairly slow pitch, runs were difficult to come by and we got off to to a steady start with 29 coming off the first 10 overs. Sean Taylor and Grant Davidson got the innings moving though as they added 50 for the 3rd wicket. Sean anchored the innings and made a very good 59. There were also useful contributions from debutantes Craig Bryen ,who hit a 6 off his first ball for the club and Callum Mearns who made a quickfire 10. In the end, we got up to a creditable score of 143 for 8 from our 35 overs.

Kelso reply got off to an equally steady start as they were 31 for 0 after 8 overs. From there though they took control of the game as their batsman began to rapidly increase the scoring rate. The first wicket fell at 53, thanks to a smart caught and bowled by Jake Perry. Kelso's experienced batsmen got ahead of the scoring rate and we never managed to create pressure by taking regular wickets. In the end, Kelso reached their target with 10 overs to spare. The other debutante James Whyman bowled well and finished with 3 overs for 13 runs.

Despite the defeat, it was a good all round effort against a team that had many players who played at a higher level than us. The three new players, Craig Bryen, James Whyman and Callum Mearns all did well in their first game for the club.
