Tayside Group Forfarshire won through to the semi-finals of the Caledonia Murgitroyd T20 Knockout on Sunday with a 47-run win over Stoneywood-Dyce.

Forfarshire lost wickets regularly during the early part of their innings and at 87 for 5 from 12 overs a good finish to the 20 was needed - and Scott provided that with a 36 ball innings of 57 not out to elevate the Forfs total to 147 for 8.

Christian struck twice in quick succession when Forfs took to the field, first holding a well struck caught and bowled chance then finding an edge that flew to Callum. Two wickets for Blackie then helped to secure a comfortable 47-run victory, Stoneywood-Dyce closing on 100 for 6.

Forfarshire 4th XI kicked off their season with a high-scoring win over Montrose at Mackays Forthill on Sunday.

Morgan (55) and James (29) added 60 for the first wicket before 53 on debut from Nigel and 40 from skipper Greig took Forfarshire to within sight of 200 before Blair (29no) and second debutant Garry (17no) chipped in to round off the innings on 235 for 5.

Montrose got off to a promising start however Lewis bowled dangerman Christie with the total on 50 in a spell of 3 for 10. Blair completed a good days work with 3 for 45 that helped restrict Montrose to 161 for 8 after 40 overs.

Forfarshire were on the wrong end of a record breaking Eastern Premier League match at Mackays Forthill on Saturday (29th April) - the 682 runs scored being the highest aggregate score in the history of the EPL. 


Asked to bat first, Matty (87 from 76 balls) punished the visiting attack in the early overs hitting 13 boundaries in a dominant opening partnership with Callum (90 from 107 balls). Forfarshire passed 150 in the 23rd over and it took a direct hit from a runout off a free-hit due to insufficient players outside the 30-yard circle to separate the pair with the total on 167. Callum looked set for a comfortable century when Shorten hit him in front to end a well constructed innings on 90.


Rojo got off the mark with a scoop shot to fine leg and quickly accelerated the run rate which had slowed after Greaves lobbed a catch to cover. Rojo (68 not out from 50 balls) and Umair (45 from 43 balls) added 102 in the last 13 overs to elevate the Forfarshire total to 340 for 4 after 50 overs.


The Aberdeenshire openers wasted no time in making their intentions known and after 20 overs were 147 for no wicket. Brock held a high catch at mid-off in Christian’s 2nd over to dismiss Reid for 69 (65 balls) while a sharp caught and bowled by Umair undid Venske for 99 from 84 balls. This set the scene for Aberdeenshire pro Ngoepe to mark his arrival with a superb 109 not out on debut and take the visitors to a 5 wicket win in the 47th over.
