Mannofield

Portcullis Victorious Again!!

Our first two game double header of the season saw us take on Mannofield for the first time this season at a damp Sheddocksley. It saw the welcome return of club stalwarts Howard Smith and Ranjan Sahoo and a new one off captain as Dave Elrick took the reigns as we managed our resources to cover cup committments on the Sunday.

Sahoo Strikes Back!

If Superman gains energy from sunlight then todays glorious weather at Duthie Park must have energised Portcullis as we recorded our first league win of the season by beating Mannofield 2nd by three wickets.

Sahoo Guides Portcullis to Fighting Draw

Portcullis, led by a magnificent batting performance by Ranjan Sahoo (87*), managed a draw in a high scoring game at Sheddocksley against a strong Mannofield side.

Captain Nair won the toss and elected to field. Nair and Alan Dobey opened the bowling for Portcullis with Nair taking the first wicket of M.Zanre for 2. The opening spell was tight and was well supported by Nitin Shetty, the first change bowler, who replaced Nair. Runs was hard to come by and Mannofield were 38 for 1 in first 20 overs.

Mowat Mows Mannofield!

Portcullis's advance on Grade 3 continued to gather pace on Saturday with a resounding victory over Mannofield's second team at Duthie Park. Excellent individual perfromances from Kris Nair, Alex Bryce and new recruit Graham Mowat ensured an 8 wicket victory that keep us firmly in contention for promotion.
