Forfarshire CC - 2014

Autoecosse Forfarshire CC is located at Forthill Sports Club in Broughty Ferry and the Forthill ground has been the clubs home since it was founded in 1880. 
In 2014, four senior and five junior teams will compete in national and local leagues and cups, along with occasional friendlies. 

In 2013, Autoecosse 
Forfarshire gained promotion to the Cricket Scotland Eastern Premiership to see top level cricket return to Forthill in 2014. Autoecosse Forthill finished mid-table in the Premier Division of the Strathmore & Perthshire Cricket Union while Autoecosse Forthill 2nd XI brought more silverware to the club by winning SPCU division one and the club's development team, Autoecosse Forthill 3rd XI, finished a creditable third in SPCU Division 2 North.
Junior cricket is a major part of the club and the hard work of recent years was rewarded when the under 15 team won the 2013 Scottish Cup, the first time in nearly 30 years that this trophy rests at Forthill. Our thriving junior section provides training sessions organised by qualified coaches all year round, with participation in local leagues and national cups from the under 10s age-group upwards throughout the summer.

New members for all teams and age-groups are always welcome. To request more information, use the Contact page, or just come along to one of the training sessions.

Forfarshire Win at Murgitroyd Caledonia Finals Day
30th July 2014

Forfarshire won the regional finals of the Murgitroyd national T20 knockout at Forthill on Sunday to progress to the national finals day at Shawholm (Poloc CC) on Sunday 10th August.
A large crowd witnessed Forfarshire overcome a strong Glenrothes line-up in the first semi-final in a high scoring match that saw Ryan Watson hit an unbeaten century for Glenrothes in their total of 159 for 3. A 98-run second wicket partnership between Craig (71) and Umair (59 not out) took the game away from Glenrothes and set up a local derby final with Arbroath after they bowled out Stoneywood-Dyce for 98 while defending their own 110 in the second semi-final.  scorecard

Tim blasted 41 from 27 balls to set the tempo for the final and along with another superior innings from Craig (79 from 62 balls) added 89 for the first wicket when Tim offered a steepling caught and bowled to Christie. Umair hit 41 from 26 balls to round off the Forfs innings and set Arbroath a challenging 187 to win. Fraser Burnett hit 8 boundaries in an aggressive 42 to give Arbroath an ideal start to their run chase while 32 from 25 balls by Calvin put further pressure on the Forfs but 3 for 28 from Umair saw Forfarshire fight back. A 22-run onslaught in the 19th over brought Arbroath back into the game but Scott held his nerve to bowl a tight final over to see Forfarshire through to the national finals.  scorecard

Forthill 2nd XI Win Two Counties Cup Final
16th July 2014

An excellent performance from Forthill 2nd XI saw them lift the Two Counties Cup at Doo'cot Park on Sunday at the inaugural SPCU Cup Finals day.

Norwood won the toss and invited Forthill to bat first in front of a healthy crowd. Andy edged behind in the second over, but a superb unbeaten 130-run partnership between Clark (65 from 60 balls) and Callum (43 from 53 balls) saw Forthill end their 20 overs on a challenging 136 for 1.

The second innings started in dramatic fashion when Craig trapped opener Shoaib in front with his second ball then bowled Saeed with the next. A third wicket followed later in the over when Singh tried to clear mid-on but instead offered a high catch which was well taken by Simmy jnr to leave Norwood reeling at 2 for 3. Norwood never recovered from their early losses, and two wickets for Morgan along with a wicket apiece for Chris, Jack and Andy saw Norwood all out for 90.
