Cricket – St Martin’s Beat Visiting Bayshill Side

Report by Colin Daly

It was good to welcome back our old friends from Bayshill on a sunny Saturday 30th July for a 25 over match on St. Martin’s.

The home team won the toss and decided to bat first.

All the batsmen got into double figures with C. Hinds (55) and A. Spencer (56) top scoring to give a final total of 211 for 3.

The visitors made a brave start at this massive total but after a few overs started to fall behind the run rate – A. Pierce (38) and S. Lilley (22) top scored.

E. Saundfurr scored an assertive 1 before she was caught out by a brute from St. Martin’s, who was soundly booed.

In the end Bayshill’s total of 135 was not enough and St. Martin’s claimed victory.

Better luck next year Bayshill.
