Cricket: St Martin’s v Truro Doctors

st martins cricket pitch sign 2Report by Colin Daly

The Truro Doctors haven’t managed to fit us in on their Scilly tour for a while but we managed to find a date on Friday 18th September at 4pm for a T20 match.

The visitors batted first and lost three quick wickets then I. Davies came in and settled things down; eventually scoring 58 not out.  C. Blake added a useful 19 to the total of135 for 5.

The weather was overcast but dry so, after tea and biscuits, the game resumed with J. Smith and J. Morton opening for St. Martin’s.

It was looking good but an unlucky inside edge onto his stumps removed J. Morton. M. Clements then came in and did what I. Davies did for the Docs, scoring 63 not out.

The  run rate was fairly good but it needed a push to reach the required total. E. Northey came in and the total was reached in the twentieth over.

Analysis was carried out at the Sevenstones before the Docs went on their way vowing on a return in 2016.
