Movin’ on up

A PAIR of southside cricket clubs are moving on up in the league after the first of three play-off rounds was completed on Sunday.

At Titwood in the Premiership, Greaves Clydesdale, the leading club from the west of Scotland, got the better of Watsonians after setting a modest target of 200 for the loss of eight wickets.

Poloc went down by seven wickets, despite some enterprising batting by Dan Walton (62) and Danial Chaudhry (59). Leaving them in third place, not yet theoretically out of the title race but requiring a dog-eats-dog set of results in the remaining two rounds of games.

Weir’s went to the top of the 5th-8th place play-off league by virtue of a sharp increase in their win percentage - the result of having completed only eight of 15 scheduled league matches this season.
