Match Report

The first Forty Club Scotland District cricket match of the season was yesterday at Fettes School in Edinburgh.

The weather was warm and pleasant for the time of year, the pitch was, as it always is, superb and the cricket teas were a delight as usual.

We negotiated an honourable draw (100 for 5) after getting a bit of a run around in the field off some talented youngsters who posted 200 for 2 off 30 overs and declared. A young lad called George West scored an unbeaten 103 off 99 balls with 9 fours and 4 sixes. I have to say it was one of the nicest innings we have seen played by a Scot in a long time. Serious talent who also plays for Grange.
