Matt Purdie Week 2

The Purdies had an exceptionally long journey to Spittal BC in England to play the Border BA in week two of the Matt Purdie.

The Purdies unfortunately came up short with the Border BA winning 77 v 55.

The Committee, Team Managers Duncan and Ricky would like to thank all the players who were part of the 2019 Andrew Hamilton Squad.

The East Section as we know is a very difficult section to qualify from. The Association has now qualified from the section in consecutive years. An excellent achievement.

On Saturday 6 July the squad travelled to Auchinleck to face Lanarkshire South in the quarters of the A.H.T. The team arguably played the best game of the series but it just fell short of victory due to at times moments of brilliance by the bowlers of Lanarkshire south.

All the very best to you all for the remainder of the season.
