Teams from primary schools in Brechin and the surrounding area took part in the annual cricket festival at Guthrie Park on June 9.

A spokesperson for the event said: “A great day was enjoyed by all teams and volunteers alike. The title was not decided until the very last ball.”

The early pacesetters in the competition were from Andover Primary School, who dismissed Stracathro and Lethnot in early games as their experience looked like shining through.

Maisondieu’s team also looked like formidable opposition.

The two Brechin schools’ form set up a showdown just after lunch.

Andover, however, proved to be too street wise for their opponents. Pace bowler Harrison deployed some superb bowling.

Alongside skipper Walker the duo in particular helped take the initiative away from Maisondieu, thanks to some sparkling running between the wickets and cultured stroke play.

Andover finished first out of all the teams, with Maisondieu and Edzell sharing second place.

The spokesperson continued: “Everyone would like to wish Andover and all involved well as they look to come back from Arbroath with the Angus title on Tuesday.”
