Solid bowling work helped Inverurie to a nine-wicket victory over Queens X/Stoneywood/Dyce on Sunday.

Inverurie won the toss and asked their oponents to bat first on a rather wet wicket following the rain of the previous week.

The Inverurie bowling was tight and wickets tumbled at regular intervals.

Bowling for Inverurie - G Coutts 3 - 10; J Moore 3 - 18; G Hadden 3 - 33; J Jessiman 1 - 30


107 for 1 (27 overs)

Bowling for QX/S’wood/Dyce - R Taylor 1 - 27

Highlights of the game were a spectacular diving one handed catch by Gary Coutts fielding at square leg and a blitz on the bowling by Mark Strachan, smashing five sixes in the last few overs to finish the game off in style.
