Watsonians kick-started their 2018 season in the best possible fashion by winning the held over Murgitroyd Twenty20 cricket national finals day in Stirling on Sunday.

The event was postponed towards the end of last season and rearranged for the first weekend of this campaign.

In their semi-final the Capital men beat Dumfries – and the rain showers – to progress.

In the other last-four tie, Clydesdale defeated the much fancied Forfarshire to book their place too.

The Watsonians bowlers did a great job to restrict Clydesdale to 92 all out in the final, spinners Brendan O’Connell and Mike Carson taking 3-11 and 3-13 respectively.

Dewald Nel, Oli Brown and Tom Cullen also took a wicket apiece while Andrew Chalmers played his part in a run out.

In their reply, Watsonians made short work of things, Scotland man George Munsey, pictured, blasting an unbeaten half century as they won by 10 wickets.
