Herklots take EIGHT as Salthill fail to deliver.

Salthill travelled to Eastleigh to play lowly placed Trojans III for their final league match of the season.

Salthill took to the field and started off well restricting Trojans to 35 runs with 5 wickets down in the first 13 overs. However, Trojans began to fight back and the Salthill bowlers could not finish the team off and they doggedly fought on to achieve a well deserved 112 off 35 overs with Gor (13*) and Broomfield (12) offering a tail end resistance. Steve King 3-20 was the pick of the Salthill bowlers.

 

A lethargic batting performance from Salthill following the tea break enabled Trojans to be victorious with only opener Rob Johnson determined to fight to top score 23. Adrian Elsbury provided some resistance towards the end of the Salthill innings with a four and six in his 12 runs. Herklots took 8-21 to give Trojans young side a worthy victory. Salthill all out for 73.

 

A mid table finish with much promise for next seasonÂ….
