Uddingston vs McCrea West of Scotland

By David Hinchliffe

Top of the table clash for early front-runners.

McCrea West of Scotland travel to Uddingston on Saturday (8th June) as second place take on third place in the WDCU Premier Division.

Both sides have build fearsome reputations already this season for fast bowling and hard hitting. If the weather allows, it will be fascinating to see which side will get the edge.

West see the return of left arm spinner James Fennah, giving captain Ian Young seven top quality options with the ball, including stalwart Simon Brown who has stepped up from the Partick XI this year and has performed his way to the top of the bowling averages for McCrea West of Scotland.

In addition, West's powerful order bats all the way down to McNulty: a match winner with bat and ball. Kleinveldt and Fearn are in especially dramatic form from T20 cricket this week, where the pro hit 130 and the left hander was not out on 75.

Uddingston have plenty of stock to draw from too. Lyons, Sabri and Awais hit the ball hard. Alexander, an off season move from Dumfries, sends them down at pace. It will certainly be irresistible come Saturday.

The full West side is:

Ian Young*
Simon Brown
Rob Corner
Lucas Farndale
Jon Fearn
James Fennah
Dave McNulty
Michael Miller
John Oliver
Gavin Smith
Rory Kleinveldt

Weather permitting, the game is scheduled for a 12pm start at Bothwell Castle Policies.
