Memorial Match win for Dumfries Cricket Club

In the first pre-season friendly of 2024 for Dumfries the Nunholm side won their Memorial Match at Gatehouse on Sunday in an inaugural fixture in memory of Galloway’s long-serving player and committee member, Jerry Teale.

The intended double header of two T20 games was disrupted by rain and the Nunholm side won a reduced 15 over-a-side encounter thanks to a challenging first inning total of 131 for 4. Chris Bellwood top scored and retired on 56 and was supported by Johnathan Van Zyl with 39 followed by 21 not out from Wahid Jabarkhil.

A four wicket spell by Trevor Newport halted the Galloway top order, and a wicket each from Reynolds-Lewis and Safi, plus two run outs, meant Galloway reached 66 for 8 in reply.  Akhil Sudhi top scored as well as claiming two wickets for Galloway.The first presentation of the Jerry Teale Memorial Trophy bat was made after the match to Dumfries’s Captain James Cox.
