Sheridan shines in Poloc win over Kelburne

SELF-CONFESSED "old fossil" Keith Sheridan marked his first league appearance for more than two years by playing a major part in Poloc's crucial West Zone First Division win against Kelburne at Shawholm.
The former Scotland spinner claimed three cheap wickets to pave the way for the tense seven-run success.
And he admitted: "It was a really important match, so they wheeled out the old fossil - and I have to say it felt as if I had never been away!
"I know I will feel a wee bit sore because I have had hardly any bowling, but it was very enjoyable.
"From a team point of view, it was a vital result because it puts a bit of daylight between ourselves and other clubs at the foot."
Steve McLister had shone with the ball for the Paisley outfit as he took six for 18, curbing Poloc to a nervy 116.
But Sheridan turned back the clock with his three dismissals, which helped to dispose of Kelburne for 109 with an over left.
The other winners in the division were Renfrew and Weirs at the expense of Stenhousemuir and Ferguslie.
In the Eastern section, Fauldhouse completed the county derby double over West Lothian, while Freuchie bucked form by hammering Falkland in the battle of Fife at Muir Road.
Braydon Tracey struck yet another century to inspire SMRH to glory against Penicuik at Kirkhill.
And at Newfield, Corstorphine snuffed out the challenge of Edinburgh Accies.
