DUNFERMLINE and Carnegie Cricket Club are still looking for their first East League Division 4 win after they missed out by the narrowest of margins against Grange third XI at McKane Park last Saturday.
On winning the toss, the home side chose to bat first and made a strong start through Martin Honeyford and James Spreng and soon had 40 on the board but then wickets started to tumble to some pretty ordinary bowling.
The Callan brothers, Murray and Bruce, achieved double figures but the only other batsmen to achieve that was Michael Goodchild and it was only through a healthy sundries contribution that the total passed 150. In reply, the innings of Metcalfe and Docherty managed to secure a two-wicket win for the visitors, with Dunfermline and Carnegie dropping no fewer than six catches.
Dunfermline and Carnegie (9) 151, (M Honeyford 25, J Spreng 17, M Callan 16, T Docherty 3 for 16, A Docherty 3 for 29).
Grange 3rd XI (20) 152 for 8, (J Metcalfe 48, T Docherty 41 not out, D Miller 2 for 22, B Callan 2 for 32, B Keenan 2 for 32).
In the same division on Saturday, Broomhall were bowled out for only 31 at Leith Links.
Leith FAB were on top from the first ball and Broomhall were all out in only 11 overs.
The batting conditions were not easy, however, and Leith lost three wickets chasing the target.
Broomhall (3) 31, (S Hussain 3 for 3, W Shah 3 for 16).
Leith FAB (20) 32 for 3, (L Doherty 2 for 8).
