Enter spin bowler David Royle who ended with figures of 3/4! He was well supported by opening bowlers Kurtis Tankard (2/19) and Reilly O’Brien (2/20) and teammates in the field like Nick Whalley (3 catches).

The Valleys pulled in St Andrews, who lost 6 wickets for only 8 runs. As a result, the St Andrews camp went from relaxed enjoyment to total panic.

It was a moral victory for this improving MVCC junior side.
