BROOMHALL Cricket Club have a finals day to look forward to next weekend after beating the weather and Glenrothes last midweek.

Heavy rainfall on Friday night decimated the weekend card involving West Fife sides, but the Charlestown-based outfit did manage to take to the crease last Wednesday night in the Crickety SPCU (Strathmore and Perthshire Cricket Union) T20 Trophy.

After a 10-wicket win over Freuchie in their previous outing in this competition last month, the match with their opponents at The Cairns was, in effect, a quarter-final, with the winner progressing to the finals day on Sunday July 30.

Despite some damp moments during the day, conditions eased sufficiently to allow play to start, with Glenrothes winning the toss and electing to bat.

Some fine bowling by Neil Ramsay - who went on to take four wickets - and Chris Hoefling, who took two, helped ensure the Glens were kept in check, and limited to 94 runs after their 20 overs.

Hoefling and Ieuan Ward stepped up to the crease for Broomhall and the duo put the pressure on the opposing bowlers, who struggled to hit a line or length.

They, and their team-mates in the field, were powerless to halt the hosts' charge, as Hoefling, achieving his second half century of the competition, and Ward provided the runs required to help reach the target in just 13 overs.

Broomhall will now travel to Brechin next Sunday, for what club officials believe will be their first-ever finals day.

Glenrothes 94 for 7, N Ramsay 4 for 16, C Hoefling 2 for 12.

Broomhall 95 for no wicket, C Hoefling 64 not out, I Ward 16 not out.
