Poor fielding leads to loss

Have your say

Kelso lost their second game of the season in Edinburgh on Saturday to Stewarts Melville 2nds.

The Tweedsiders batted first and got off to a slow start, losing the wickets of captain Dougie Wilson and Tom Grindell. Steven Patterson and Ben Grindell put together a solid partnership, both getting 50’s respectively, and Kelso reached the total of 189 for 8 off their 45 overs.

Hard work from the Kelso bowlers meant that Stew/Mel needed eight from the last over and got the runs required off the last ball, in what was a poor fielding performance by the Tweedsiders.
