Hosting St Aidan’s at Tynwald on Saturday, the Redcaps 1 team bowled first and didn’t get a breakthrough with the opening bowlers. On came Josh Walsh who began to take wickets with his accurate stump-to-stump bowling to break the good start St Aidan’s had enjoyed.

The Claremont bowlers were a bit loose with the ball, giving the Redcaps their third best batter in extras (47). With the ball, the Claremont batters were there to give the Redcaps a run for their money but key wickets at the right times in the innings, especially late in the piece, stemmed the flow of runs and saw Claremont fall 14 runs short of the Redcaps total.
