Rain Denies Weirs

5 months ago By Colin Baxter

Heavy rained forced the abandonment of Weirs game against Glasgow Accies. But the 2nd XI had a good win.

Weirs faced Glasgow Accies at Anniesland. Batting first, the home team were skittled out for just 84, Raja Safder taking 5 wickets and Sher-Ali Afzal claiming 3. After an early wobble, Weirs seemed to be on course to win the game at tea on 46 for 3. But then heavy rain came on, forcing an abandonment. The irony will not have been lost on either team after events at Albert Park last season.

If only Michael "MJ" Clarkson was still at the club he could surely have told us the last time both Weirs XIs played the same opposing club on the same day and bowled them both out for exactly the same score. Weirs 2nd XI also bowled out Anniesland for 84 at Albert Park. Here, the rain did not intervene and a quick-fire 51 from Abid Raza took Albert Park to a comfortable 7 wicket victory.
