Saturday Wins for Forfarshire and Forthill

The large crowd that gathered at Forthill on Saturday was treated to a entertaining batting display from Ryan Watson and Michael Leask that saw the Forfs race to a five wicket win over Heriots FP. 


Chasing the visitors 219, Forfarshire lost openers Craig and Matty with 42 on the board and just as Graeme had stroked two boundaries, a mid-wicket mix up with Ryan saw him run out with the score on 71. Ryan (100 not out from 107 balls) and Michael (63 from 65 balls) then set about the visiting attack to share a fourth wicket partnership of 125 that included a 50 run blitz from just 4 overs. Earlier Liam took 4 for 57 from 12 overs to restrict the visitors to 219, Peter Ross top-scoring with 82 not out. 

Forthill continued their unbeaten run with a comprehensive win at Rossie Priory. Batting first, Christian (37) and Callum added 50 for the first wicket before 39 not out from Adam helped forthill up to 179 when they were all out in the last over. Quinno (4 for 24) was quick to strike with two early wickets before Christian completed a good all round performance with 4 for 5 to wrap up the game. 

Forfarshire's Scottish Cup trip to Poloc was cancelled due to rain and will now be played on Sunday 19th July while the visit of St.Modans to play Forthill 2nd XI also fell fowl of rain.

Ryan Century at Corstorphine

Ryan Watson hit his fourteenth National League century for Forfarshire in an innings that saw Forfarshire romp to victory over Corstorphine with almost 20 overs to spare.

RH Corstorphine chose to bat first at the Royal High School grounds and made steady progress through Marnie (62) and Malik (25) until Beghin produced the breakthrough to see Malik caught by Watson with the total on 49. An aggressive approach from Payne saw a high catch taken by Andy off Quinno just as RHC looked to be accumulating a decent total on a slow outfield. Liam and Umair bowled well in tandem but remained wicketless until 3 wickets in seven balls for Liam saw Forfs take control of the innings with RHC reduced to 135 for 5, Liam going on to take 6 for 30 from 13 overs. Blackie brought about a swift end to the innings with 2 for 5 in nine balls to see Forfarshire need 175 to win.

Rhino wasted little time in finding the boundary and raced to 50 from 41 balls while Matty looked in little difficulty until an attempt to hit over the top saw Yellowlees take a running catch with the total on 90 in the 14th over. Rory was run out for 13 while looking eager for a second run to bring about an end to a 29 run partnership. Ryan reached 100 in 104 balls and despite the further loss of Graeme and Callum, Forfarshire comfortably reached their target in the 31st over, Ryan finishing the match with a four then a six.

Forthill Stay Top of North East Championship
Forthill overcame Arbroath to remain leaders of the SPCU North East Championship. Batting first, Forthill were in trouble at 53 for 5 but were rescued by Gav (65 not out) playing his first match of the season and Richard (60) to see Forthill recover to 191 for 7. An early wicket each for Andy and Hogi saw Arbroath 12 for 2 after 4 overs and the visitors continued to lose wickets regularly with Hogi (3 for 48) and Ted (3 for 25) inflicting the damage as Forthill secured a 45 run victory.
