THE East League Cricket programme last Saturday brought another good day for Dunfermline and Carnegie but Broomhall found their trip to Selkirk a bridge too far.

The Charlestown team are finding fielding a regular side difficult and would welcome anyone who would like to play cricket to call in on them at their Cairns ground in the village on a Tuesday or Thursday evening, or a match day.

Broomhall were under pressure after losing the toss and being put in to bat. Only one batsman made double figures as the they were hustled out in just 20 overs for 43.

Selkirk did not have to hurry in their run chase but Broomhall bowled and fielded bravely and lost in the 13th over.

Broomhall (1) 43, (A Dawson 15, G Fenton 6 for 15).

Selkirk 44 for 1, (J Graham 23 not out, G Fenton 15 not out).

Dunfermline and Carnegie produced a strong performance against Mazars Grange third XI at McKane Park in Division Four.

Home skipper Wayne Sullivan asked the visitors to bat and while several batsmen got starts, only one got past 20.

Don Petrie took two early wickets and that curbed the visitors’ aggressive ideas and more fell steadily.

Billy Strange chipped in with three victims and John Hutton two as the Grange side were all out in the 40th over for 133.

Dunfermline and Carnegie opened steadily, in the shape of Mushi Beg and David Miller, and their partnership of 48 saw the home side on the way to victory.

Grange found Beg and Mike Busby punishing any bad deliveries and the score soon was motoring towards three figures.

Both batsman remained unbeaten as the target was passed with nine wickets in hand pushing the team into the top half of the table.

Mazars Grange third XI (5) 133, (N Kaczinski 21 not out, B Strange 3 for 28, D Petrie 2 for 16, J Hutton 2 for 36).

Dunfermline and Carnegie (20) 134 for 1, (M Beg 51 not out, M Busby 45 not out, D J Miller 28).
