Vital victory for Penicuik

With Penicuik 1st XI’s game cancelled as a result of bad weather, attention turned to the 2nd XI, who were at home to Holy Cross 2nd XI.

This was vital game for the 2nd XI in their quest to avoid relegation from East of Scotland Division 5.

Holy Cross batted first and Penicuik bowled and fielded superbly, as they skittled them out for just 61 in 27.2 overs.

This left Penicuik with the straightforward task of knocking off the runs with seven wickets to spare.
