Gordonians Unable to Resist Portcullis Bowling

You can only play what is put in front of you, and Portcullis followed up last week's record 299 at Huntly by bowling out an under strength 3rd Gordonians for just 15 runs.

We won the game by 10 wickets, with 13 runs off the bat and 3 wides. Nair took 5 wickets with Maidment taking 3. Old man Collinson took two good catches at mid off the other catches by Kannan and junior Collinson. There was a splendid run out by junior Collinson after a terrific throw in by Cox. Bryce and Collinson senior saw us through with Bryce top scoring with 10 runs. The match was played in good spirit by both teams. Former Portcullis player Tarun Dureja was in the Gordonians side, as were Portcullis players Andy Leathem and Graham Mowat who had been loaned to the visitors at their request to enable the game to go ahead.

Afterwards we had a 20/twenty match with the current top two players from our MVP table (Nair and Maidment) playing for Gordonians. Nonetheless, Portcullis came out on top again.

The fielding again was great with nothing going cheaply. Great score, great game and great pint afterwards.

Compliments to Ronnie and his missus for the teas. Lovely.
