On his maiden Captaincy, Adrian Duthie was a happy man. He had lead P back
to the winning trail with this inaugural win against his one time home town
P: 180-8 dec. A Duthie 56. D Roberts 28. P Attwood 25. Ashworth 7-1-27-3
D: 103-10. Knowlson 29. D Roberts 8.4-4-11-5. J Baglivi 2-1-3-3.
Leading from the front his half century was top score & when bringing
himself onto bowl he he knocked over Denhamıs top scorer in his 1st over. D
decided to blood a few promising youngsters to defend their unbeaten record
against P (w2 d1 c1), but it was hardly a full strength P XI either.
pitch was better than in the past & Pıs batters were as positive as they had
been all season.
darryl Roberts revisited his early season promise & picked up a fivefer to
go along with a useful 28 earlier, as well as the wicket of the dangerous
Gary Hales, bowled off his pads for a duck. Brother Allan off spinning at
the the other end, saw P get in a possible maximum 44 overs but the last 6
wee not required as Darryl mopped up the tail.
