On Friday 18 May, the School hosted the annual 1XI v Merchistonians T20 bash. It was another excellent turn out for the old boys. Great to see so many recent leavers coming to support this event. The Merchistonians batted first. Douglas Voas (04-11) (72) and Patrick Glennie (00-05) (57) batted very well together posting a score of 143- 2off their 20 overs. Matthew c was the pick of the 1XI bowlers with 1-6 off 3 overs. After a shaky start, Douglas T and Jamie steadied the ship with some super power hitting in the last 6 overs. Jamie D scored his 44 runs off just 16 balls, including eight boundaries. The 1XI got over the line with just 4 balls to spare. All players mingled in the WW1 pavilion after the game for a catch up on what was a lovely end to an exciting game of T20 cricket.
We look forward to see you all again next year.
