Falkland Beaten by Weather
Persistent Rain Forces Abandonment
On Saturday Falkland hosted Carlton in the Cricket Scotland Eastern Premier League. The visitors won the toss and chose to bat first. Their innings began in light drizzle. Falkland's opening bowler Calum Watson soon had Carlton's batsmen in trouble taking 3 wickets from his 7 overs. At one stage Carlton were 33 for 3. Carlton's Herdman and Shah struggled on against a motivated Falkland side and after 17 overs had pushed the total on to 70 runs when the rain forced the Umpires and a very disappointed Falkland team back to the pavilion. The game was abandoned at 4pm.
Calum Watson finished with bowling figures of 3 for 25 from 7 overs which included a double wicket maiden.
