The Matches St George's Park - Union vs Uitenhage
Union vs Uitenhage

The second day's play in connection with this match was entertained upon on Saturday on the former's ground, the Union gaining an easy victory.

On the previous Saturday it will be remembered the Union punished the bowling to such an extent that 349 runs were registered for the loss of only three wickets, the not outs being RA Gleeson 158 and VD Mackay 99.

Gleeson on Saturday carried his score to 186, when his splendid innings came to a close as the result of a ball from Glisson, which took his wicket.

Mackay added 26 to his score when he was given lbw to Stack.

Needless to say, these two heavy scorers came in for deserved applause on returning to the pavilion.

The other batsmen did very little and at 423 for 8 wickets, the innings was declared closed.

The Uitenhage team had about two-and-a-half hours in which to knock off the required number of runs, but from the very first it appeared to be a hopeless task.

Against the bowling of Mackay, Lyons, and Allison, the visitors made poor progress, and the whole side were got rid of for the total of 50.

The chief scorers were Glisson with 14 and Wadham 12.

Mackay took six wickets for 8 runs, Lyons two for 7, and Allison two for 11.
