Poor batting display by 1sts

A poor batting display by the 1sts saw them lose their penultimate match in the Robinsons Rose bowl league by 21 runs at Cook Collegians on Saturday. Lurgan had restricted the home side to 109 for 9 wickets in their 20 overs with Iqbal Khan and Junior Nelson each taking 2 wkts for 13 and Callum Gibson 2 for 22.. In reply, the town side started promisingly with over 40 put on for the first wicket between Stephen Johnston and Stephen Chambers in just over 5 overs. However the rest of the batting were unable to capitalise on the start and began to fall behind the required run rate with the innings finally ending on 88 all out in the 19th over.
