Albany Cricket Association powerhouse Railways cruised to an easy eight-wicket win over Denmark on Saturday at McLean Park.

The Tigers, looking for their seventh straight premiership, had no problems in chasing down the Magpies small total of 91.

The Tigers put on a strong bowling display to restrict the Magpies to 91 from their 45 overs as they couldn’t find any flow before the Tigers had little problems chasing down the total.

As Nathan Crudeli suggested his young players stood up with Flynn Cristinelli impressing at the top of the order while wicketkeeper Aiden Dallimore took his opportunity at number three.

Spearhead all-rounders Coen Marwick and Crudeli had the Magpies 2-3 early on and then when opener Matt Burton was caught behind for 9 the home side were in all soughts of trouble at 3-14.

Peter Ross (19) and Oliver Pluckhahn (35) put up a strong fight but couldn’t hold out the Tigers bowlers for long enough.

The home side managed to scramble to 8-91 of their 45 overs as Crudeli starred with the ball taking 3-8. The Tigers had no problems chasing down the small total, Marwick was removed for nine before youngster Cristinelli in his first game and Aiden Dallimore put on a 78-run partnership.

Dallimore finished on 33 not out as the Tigers cruised to a bonus point win, reaching 2-97.
