Kelso take step up thanks to Grindell

Kelso beat Kirk Brae on Saturday to leapfrog them into third position in East of Scotland Division Three.

Batting first, Kelso had Thomas Grindell to thank as he scored a superb 111 not out with good support from Stephen Patterson and Jason Gibson to take them to a fine total of 189.

A number of Kirk Brae batsmen got good starts, but none of them could transfer their early form into a match-winning innings with some fine bowling from all the Kelso bowlers keeping them at bay.

Special mention goes to Stewart Cessford, who returned superb figures of 7 overs, 5 maidens and 2 wickets for just 4 runs.
