Tweedsiders go down fighting

Despite putting up a brave battle, Kelso lost to Western Region champions Dumfries in the Murgitroyd T20 on Sunday.

Dumfries batted first at Shedden Park and Kelso did well to restrict the visitors to 166 off their 20 overs. Some superb bowling by Callum Davidson (4-21), backed up by great fielding, helped slow the visitors down.

Kelso got off to a solid start with Dougie Wilson and Ben Grindell at the crease before Robert Hogarth stepped in with a quickfire 44 which put Kelso in a strong position. But, sadly, wickets began to fall on a regular basis and Kelso fell 35 runs short, in the end losing to a better team.
