More Disappointment For the 1sts

Falkland (7) : 117 all out in 26.2 overs.
(D Pearce 33, J Thompson 4 for 13, A Bailwal 2 for 24)

ion8 Forfarshire 2nd XI (25) : 118 for 5 in 28.3 overs.
(G Garden 61*, R Hepburn 2 for 7)

Forfarshire 2nd XI won by 5 wkts.

After heavy overnight rain the Falkland players and Club Members worked extremely hard to get the playing surface at Scroggie Park into a playable condition. Only thanks to these endeavours was the match able to get started at 3.15pm with each innings being reduced to 30 overs.

Forfarshire won the toss and asked the home side to bat first. Falkland were all out for 117 in 26.2 overs with only Darren Pearce (33 from 22 balls) and Harsha Cooray (26 from 22 balls) making scores of any note. Forfarshire's J.Thompson returned bowling figures of 4 for 13 from 6 overs.

Although Falkland had early successes they just could not remove Forfarshire's opener G.Garden who went on to see his team home with 61 not out from 88 balls. Unfortunately, Falkland contributed 31 extras to the Forfarshire total and the visitors won by 5 wickets.
Falkland's Ryan Hepburn returned remarkable bowling figures of 2 for 7 from 6 overs.
