St Boswells beat Heriots II by 10 wickets


MATCH-starved St Boswells kept up their winning ways in the East of Scotland second division with an easy away victory to Heriots seconds at Goldenacre.

St Boswells 1st XI played Heriots 2nd XI on Saturday with the Villagers already at the top of Division 2 of the East League.

Fielding first, the Villagers managed to smother their hosts attempts to score runs in their innings. Pick of the bowlers was Elliot Hunter, who took four wickets for 18 runs in his eight overs, with both Elms and Turnbull taking two wickets apiece for similarly paltry totals. Heriots ended all out for just 59 runs in 28.2 overs, well short of the allotted 40.

With the rain threatening, Cletus Mathurin and Stephen Broom took it upon themselves to carry out a destructive batting display ‑ Broom topping the scoring with a thunderous 42. The 60 runs was preceded by an enormous six towards Princes Street, and completed with nearly 29 overs to spare.

St Boswells remain at the top of the division with five wins out of five and an away match to Freuchie seconds a mouth-watering prospect for this coming weekend.
