Arbroath United

Arbroath United X1 v Strathmore X1 at Lochside on Sunday. August 31.

United elected to bat but made a disappointing start losing three players trapped lbw in the opening eight overs in reaching a total of 6.

Paul Rennie (2 for 14) then claimed a second wicket when he dismissed Ben Plomer and when Matthew Gibson was bowled by Andy Sturrock United had reached 20 for 5 in the 13th over.

United failed to recover and only Murray Robb (12 from 45 balls) reached double figures and had to be grateful for 24 extras in reaching a total of 52 in 23.1 overs with Sturrock ending with 3 for 20 and Craig McDonald 2 for 3.

When Strathmore batted Norman Milton was an early wicket for Matthew Gibson but Ed Taylor and Craig Patterson took the game away from United taking the total to 36 before the latter was bowled by Chris Robb in the 13th over with the total on 36. Taylor (12 from 61 balls) remained unbeaten and with Jon Blackie (12 from 22 balls) took Strathmore X1 to an eight wicket victory with 19.2 overs remaining.

United gained two points from the defeat and now require a further six points in their final match v. Meigle X1 on Sunday.
