Two excellent run outs from Oliver West and Ben Golley plus a superb catch from Freddie Meredith kept the home side down. Pick of the bowlers were Edison Wardle with 2 wickets and Archie Robertson with economic figures. With 135 to chase off 20 overs Ben Golley and Sam Farr started at a furious pace but were dismissed cheaply. In stepped Freddie Meredith and Kip O’Higgins to batter the bowlers all over the park. We chased the total with three overs to spare for a glorious 7 wicket victory.
