The men’s 2nd grade hosted Scarborough at Lilac Hill, with the visitors setting a hefty target of 304 before being bowled out, with the home side sitting at three runs after two overs faced before play stopped for the day.

The men’s 3rd grade side also travelled to Scarborough, with the home side restricting the visitors to 116 after bowling them out. Midland Guildford’s bowling attack then put the home side at 4-37 before play ended.

The 4th grade also hosted Scarborough at home, with the hosts sitting at 215 runs with one wicket remaining before Scarborough takes the crease.

Unfortunately for the female A grade side, their match against Melville was abandoned due to poor weather over the weekend.

The other women’s sides had a bye last weekend.
