Falkland Progress to Quarter Final of National Village Cup

6 days ago By Paul Watson

Making history and memories. What a support we had.

Falkland 1st XI 215 for 6 (40 overs)
(G Watson 74no)

East Ardsley 140 all out (32 overs)
(S Mullins 48, L Robertson 3-25)

Falkland Won by 75 Runs

On a lovely Sunny Sunday afternoon, both the weather and Falkland Cricket Club gave a very warm Scottish welcome to their visitors, East Ardsley from the Bradford Cricket League, Yorkshire.

Falkland's Captain Stuart Campbell won the toss and chose to bat first. The home side scored 215 for 6 wickets in their 40 overs with Graeme Watson scoring a patient and well constructed 74 not out.

East Ardsley's reply never really got going and only Scott Mullins troubled the Falkland bowlers with 48 before falling to a ball from Lyle Robertson caught by Alan Hamilton.

The visitors innings lasted for just 32 overs and reached a total of 140 all out. Lyle Robertson returned bowling figures of 3 for 25 and Ben Strachan 2 for 11. The large crowd enjoyed the lovely sunshine, the brilliant occasion and a Falkland win by 75 runs.

The team deservedly take all the plaudits for an outstanding performance but there were also many volunteers who worked tirelessly on the day and in the week leading up to match who contributed to a highly successful day.

The support from near and far was absolutely fantastic with a large crowd watching live and also many FCC supporters tuning in to the excellent Live Sport FM coverage from as far afield as Abu Dhabi, UAE, Turkey and Florida.

Much appreciated and we would love to see you get behind the boys again on Sunday 22nd July when we play Folkton & Flixton ( Scarborough) in the Quarter Final at Scroggie.
