COWBRIDGE .......... 140-1 MAESTEG CELTIC .139-7

MAESTEG Celtic 2nds, in a rot­ten run of form hav­ing lost their last four fix­tures, looked to put things right as they trav­elled to Cowbridge on Satur­day. The home side won the toss and elected to field as Maesteg Celtic strug­gled early on.

The away side did pull it back as the over went on with El­liot Col­ston mak­ing 36 runs and Thomas Davies, 28 re­spec­tively. Good per­for­mances from Col­ston and Davies en­sured the Celtics would end their re­duced in­nings (40) on a rea­son­able 139 to­tal.

Cowbridge started their bat­ting in­nings bet­ter than their coun­ter­parts. Jonathan Webb car­ried the bat on his way to 34 runs, but the stand­out per­for­mance was that of cap­tain David Gas­coyne as he sailed to an ex­cel­lent 66 and put the win within sight for his side.

Gas­coyne was even­tu­ally caught out by Celtic’s Lyn­don Har­ris, but that would mat­ter lit­tle as Heath Webb was on hand to pro­vide the ex­tra runs his side needed, mak­ing 18, and with just un­der 5 overs to spare, the home side would get over the line and win by 9 runs.
