LocHire Stenhousemuir continued their good West Premier Division form with a big win over Clydesdale at the Tryst last Saturday.

They made their biggest total in the top flight, piling up 315 for four and dismissing the Glasgow side for 105 to claim victory by 210 runs.

It was very much a team effort with four of the top six batsmen passing 50. Zander Smith and Peter Hamilton put on 125 for the first wicket before Smith was caught and bowled by Bashir for 59.

This total was never going to within Clydesdale’s range. Zander Smith and Nick Lister quickly removed the openers to reduce Clydesdale to six for two. Two more wickets for Smith and one each for Husnain Atif and Callum Grant reduced Clydesdale to 48 for six.

Kasim Sharid with 29 and Zeeshan Bashir with 16 made a fight of it and doubled the score to 96 before Grant bowled them both. He quickly removed the last two batsmen to finish off Clydesdale for 105 and record his first five-wicket haul in the Premier Division.

This win keeps the Tryst side in third position behind Ayr and Ferguslie.
