Match report from last night’s game at Gordon Park, Ellon.
Well the penguins and polar bears were out in full force last night as Cults U13’s took to the field at Gordon Park Ellon on a baltic summer’s(?) night.
Cults won the toss and elected to bat. With the outfield damp and the ball not travelling far off the bat, the scoring was slow and extras were the clear leader on the scoreboard. Cults managed to score 43 for 2 in their reduced 16 overs, with P Moon top scoring with 5. The Cults innings was peppered with retirees in order that all players had a reasonable time at the crease.
Cults bowled well on the night but couldn’t prevent the home team from reaching their target off 11 overs, with the loss of two wickets, A Cormack taking both wickets in the same over. Contributions with the bat for Ellon-Fraserburgh from C Dalgarno and MTremaine.
Players, scorers and umpires (suitably dressed in arctic gear (well some were)) retired to the pavilion post match for a much needed cup of tea.
Cults – 43-2 (P Moon 5)
Ellon-Fraserburgh – 44-2 (C Dalgarno 11, M Tremaine 9, A Cormack 2-12)
