Poor fielding leads to loss

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.
