Thorntons Penicuik Cricket Club 3rd XI v Tranent 3 on Sat 02 May 2015 at 1.00 pm
Thorntons Penicuik Cricket Club Lost by 96 runs

Match report Following the cancellation of the opening fixture last weekend the Third XI got their season underway at a very cold Beeslack. Having lost the toss we fielded first but came up against a strong opening pair who quickly accumulated runs, reaching 180 for 1 by the drinks interval. Our bowlers stuck to their task well, creating chances but with little luck, anything short or with width being punished. Tranent reached 240-6 after 40 overs, leaving us a tough run chase which we never quite got to grips with, losing wickets at fairly regular intervals despite some good partnerships and eventually falling 96 runs short. Overall, though, there was much to be encouraged by, particularly in the performances of our youngsters - Will Kelly took two wickets, Douglas Perry one and Hew Murray bowled and batted confidently. Finn Tait made 19 opening the batting and bagged a direct hit run out. Amongst the more senior performers Craig Bryen capped an excellent all-round performance with our top score of 44 not out.
