Grange CC lift U16 Scottish Cup

Players, coaches and spectators from Clydesdale CC, Falkland CC, Grange CC and Gordonians CC gathered at Goldenacre for Finals’ Day in the U16 Scottish Cup.  There was an early morning mist – but the sun quickly broke through and everyone was treated to great exhibition of cricket.

In the semi-finals, Grange CC and Falkland CC were victorious.  On pitch 1, Grange batted first and scored 158/3, with Jack Jarvis scoring 50* (retired) and Jamie Cairns 43 – before Clydesdale finished 89/8 in reply, with Charlie Peet taking 4 for 4 and Achyut Aniruddha taking 2 for 10.

On pitch 2, Falkland batted first and scored 170/4, with Cassius Haresign scoring 50* (retired) and Lyle Robertson 37.  For Gordonians, Adi Hegde took 3 for 22.  Hegde was the mainstay of the reply too – scoring 43, as Gordonians finished 131/5 off their 20 overs.

In the 3/4 play-off match, Clydesdale elected to bat first and scored 114/6 – David Sturgess scored 52* (retired) and Owen Gould provided good support with 24.  For Gordonians, Pranav Saravanan took 3 for 6.  In the reply, Sourav Singh top scored with 24 and Faizan Rauf took 3 for 14, as Gordonians finished 90/8.

In the final, Falkland batted first and scored 103/5 off their 20 overs.  Dan Pearson scored 50* (retired) for Falkland, with Jamie Cairns taking 2 for 22.  Grange lost a couple of early wickets but Charlie Peet produced the classic ‘captain’s knock’ as his 44* saw his team home to victory, by 7 wickets.

Congratulations to Grange CC on their victory – and thanks to the groundsman, to the caterer, to the umpires, scorers, coaches and spectators and to the players for putting on a great show.
