Faculty fail to foil triumphant Tweedsiders

Kelso beat Edinburgh University Staff by 133 runs


KELSO gained their third win in a row with a victory over Edinburgh University Staff at Shedden Park on Saturday.

Stevie Patterson (58) again led with the bat and enjoyed two good partnerships with Doug Wilson and Thomas Grindell. A quick 23 from Tom Roberts saw Kelso to 207 for 8 of their 50 overs.

Edinburgh’s reply never really got going with Patterson and Greg Davidson being the pick of the bowlers with two wickets each, and a good all-round fielding performance restricting the home side to 74 all out.
