IT WAS a good weekend at the crease for Ayr Cricket Club, winning all three games however the midweek T20’s slate was not as profitable losing two of the three.

Saturday saw them travel to Glasgow to take on Langside in the Western Union where they again won the toss and chose to bat first.

But they did not get off to the best of starts, losing openers Jefferson and English early and then after a slight rebuild lost another three wickets for only one run to leave them struggling at 68-5.

This brought Duanne Grobler (48) and Scott McElnea (44) to the crease and together with a stand of 87, the highest of the day led the recovery only for another collapse which saw them lose their final five wickets for 20 runs as they were bowled out for 175.

The following day Langside were the visitors to Cambusdoon, this time in the Scottish Cup and this time it was Langside who won the toss and elected to bat and got off to a flying start. Despite the flying start Ayr saw themselves to a comfortable victory with more than 20 overs remaining.

The midweek results were not so good as they lost twice to local rivals Prestwick at the Henry Thow Oval.

On Wednesday in the McCulloch Cup, Prestwick batted first, posting an imposing total of 176-4. Sachin Chaudhary top scoring with 52. The Ayr reply never got going as their batsmen found it hard to get on top of the Prestwick bowling as they finished well short of their target on 105-7.

The following evening was a much closer affair. Prestwick again batted first, but this time did not get off to the best of starts, losing openers Chaudhary and Singh for ducks.

Ayr lost Jefferson early in their reply, but a fifty partnership between the Flack (35) and English (50) got the momentum going, but some tight bowling by the home team kept the required run rate high and they finished 14 runs short on 128-5.

The Cambusdoon XI completed a comfortable victory at home to Albert Park on Saturday. Batting first they scored an impressive 318-5 with Albert Park getting bowled out for 190 as Leck finished with 4-18 and Maxwell 3-4.
