A fantastic display of cricket from all four teams rounded off the ECB U13 Vitality Cup finals day played earlier this month at Goldenacre.
In the first semi-final, Perth Doo’cot went out to bat and finished 58 all out (N Safi 3 for 3, H Anwar 2 for 17). Glasgow Accies reached the target finishing 61 for 1 (R Mahashwari 32 ret) to book their spot in the final.
Clydesdale batted first in the second semi-final and hit an impressive 145/4 (Esakhiel 33 ret, F Rashid 30 ret, Willmott 24) which proved too high a target for Dundee HSFPs reaching 50 all out (Lowdon 28, Shenoy 2 for 2, A Rashid 2 for 8, Willmott 2 for 12).
With a crowd of eager parents cheering them on, both sides put on a great show in their bid to lift the first silverware of the season. First into bat Glasgow Accies made 85 for 8 (N Safi 22, Hargie 2 for 9) which was reached by Clydesdale hitting 86 for 4 (Esakhiel 30 ret, F Rashid 22) to claim the trophy.
A big thank you to all the teams, coaches, players and parents that took part in this years tournament and congratulations to Clydesdale.
