Excellent Win to Kick-start New Season

By

Following last weeks cancelled opening match in the Breedon Strathmore and Perthshire Cricket Union this weeks "debut" in the new league saw Dundee High School FP 2nd XI make the trip south to Gilvenbank Park.

Skipper Greig Hopcroft lost the toss and Dundee elected to have a bat first.

The innings never really got going with some very tight bowling and some excellent fielding from the Glens.

Top scorer R Hopkins played a patient innings for his 29 not out. The wickets were shared around nicely with Nathan Salt (3-20), Kenny Crichton (2-1), Muhammad Assad Dastgir Rafique (2-19) and Ian Dale (1-23). Special mention to 14 year old Ben Morris who was making his 1st XI Debut and bowled 9 overs, taking 2 wickets for only 25 runs - well done to him.

Dundee were 90 all out in 40.1 overs.

In reply Hopcroft was out early and this left Harry Fry and Chippy Dale to steady the innings - they took the score to 37 before Harry was out bowled. 2 more quick wickets fell leaving Glens 43 for 4 when Edward Gibbs came to join Chippy Dale. Some good batting, excellent running and communication saw them put on a 50 partnership to get Glens over the line for their first victory with Chippy Dale finishing with a fantastic 59 not out and Eddie 5 not out.

A good win to start the new campaign in a new league, lots of positives but also lots to work on as the season progresses.
