Merewether played Cricketers Arms in a 1st V 2nd clash that would see Merewether move to equal 1st if we won. Cricketers won the toss and chose to bat first, they started of solid being 0/26 of 11 overs on a very slow outfield but the boys clicked into gear soon after and bowled them out for 57 with Lyle McGuigan getting 4/15 of 10 overs and Chad White cleaning up the tail with 3/2 off only 3 overs.
Knowing the Cricketers had the leading wicket taker in the comp for them as well as quality bowlers to back him up the boys were cautious early but cruised home in the end to get the runs 2 down in 20 overs. Brad Davies top scored with 36 no .
