Signs of Promise in the 2nd’s – Galloway Cricket Club

After a showery morning, sunshine began to break through at Gatehouse and after losing the toss, Galloway were put in on a fair and true wicket, which after two previous games was a credit to John’s efforts with the ground. 

Despite their best efforts, the opposition bowling proved to be too much for Galloway, of particular note was S. Safi, bowling consistent inswinging Yorker length medium pace. He ended with 5-8 in 5 overs, which ripped the heart out of the Galloway batting and resulted in Galloway struggling to a total of 44 in 23 overs. On a positive note, every batter managed to put up some kind of defence and whilst a disappointing total, sometimes you have to raise your hat to good quality bowling.


After the usual great Galloway tea, the opposition trotted out to chase what appeared a very meagre total. However, Galloway had other plans and excellent effort and great bowling from S Afzal (3-17) supported by K Scraffe (2-20), meant a good game of it with victory finally being achieved, but only after 5 wickets had been lost to get the 45 runs required.


A defeat, but many positives to take, and the side left the field feeling good. Special mention to Logan Thorburn for taking his first competitive catch in the field.



Next weekend they play The Tryst at Stenhousemuir.
