IBIZA CC vs DOLLAR CC (Edinburgh 1866) Sept 2018 -

Ibiza batted first again, and openers Sam Gooda (32) and Andy Holmes (15) began well, supported by Paddy Slater (15). Then Saffer Brandon Reid (100*) came in and proceeded to score a stunning unbeaten century in only his second game for Ibiza! He was partnered by Paul Partridge (19 *), and this allowed Ibiza to score an imposing 200/3 in their 25 overs. Bowler Jason Syme impressed again with 2/19, supported by  George Buchanan-Smith, but the other bowlers conceded runs.

Dollar then batted and lost their chairman Adam "Buck" Smith first ball! Ibiza maintained their pressure with a much better fielding display and wickets continued to fall, despite resistance from Marcus Tinsley (24), Cameron Glasgow (31) again!, Simon Breasley (15) and Jason Syme (14). The visitors batted out their overs, but finished well short on 118/9, Ibiza running out winners by 82 runs. Of the Ibiza bowlers, P.Cruttwell (2/11) and M. Amos (2/4) stood out, supported by J. Parmenter (2/28), B. Reid and R. Parmenter.

This was the first visit to Ibiza by this very sociable Scottish club founded in 1866, with some of their members resplendent in their multi coloured kilts! So many thanks to their chairman Adam Buchanan-Smith, and organiser Alan Douglas for making the trip happen, and we look forward to seeing them back soon!
