Premier Cricker: Scarborough win over minor premiers not enough to secure finals

SCARBOROUGH became the first side to beat minor premiers Claremont-Nedlands this season, but it wasn’t enough to secure a Premier Cricket finals position.

Despite a gutsy victory at Abbett Park, results elsewhere mean the Gulls cannot make the top six with one round to play.

Chasing 250, Scarborough’s batting was immense, with Wes Robinson scoring an unbeaten century to guide the hosts to 4-336.

Ed Barnard scored 96 in his last game for the side to finish a terrific campaign.

The Gulls ended the Tigers’ 13-match winning streak and in doing so showed the talent they possess at the club.

Barnard has been a revelation this season as an all-rounder, with the Englishman finishing with 533 runs and 24 wickets.
