Forfarshire defeated current league champions Carlton at Mackays Forthill on Saturday (10th June) in front of a bumper crowd. Torrential rain through the previous week saw a delayed start reduce the match to 39 overs per side but this still provided much entertainment for the ‘Former Players’ that gathered for a day's reminiscing at Teds’s Shed.

Asked to bat first, Matty (35 from 41 balls) drove the first ball to the boundary and along with Callum saw Forfarshire make comfortable progress until Callum edged Shoebridge to Boyd. The innings looked in little difficulty until Matty played across Shoebridge and was bowled to leave Forfs 55 for 2 in 15 overs. A third wicket for Shoebridge and another catch for Boyd, this time off Henderson, changed the situation and left Forfarshire on edge at 66 for 4 - but Umair along with Greaves (33 from 54 balls) steadied the innings until a direct hit runout saw Greaves short of his ground with the total on 113 for 5 just as the run rate was increasing. Christian (34 not out from 32 balls) immediately kept the runs flowing with a crucial partnership of 30 with Umair who hit 27 from 42 balls. Brock and Christian added 34 in the last 5 overs to take Forfarshire to a respectable 179 for 6 in 39 overs - Brock finishing on 17 not out.

The Carlton response depended much on their top order, and Forfs were given an early boost when Christian found the edge of MacPherson’s bat and Callum dived to his right to hold a brilliant catch. A second wicket seemed hard to come by until Brock (2 for 13) and Callum combined to dismiss Beattie in the 12th over, caught down the leg side. Liam (2 for 32) replaced Christian and hit the stumps with the last ball of his first over to see Carlton 37 for 3. Herdman and Pillai looked a difficult partnership to break until Brock enticed Herdman down the wicket to offer Callum a stumping at 55 for 4. Two wickets in two balls for Umair (3 for 24) gave Forfarshire the upper hand and he was in the action again when a Shoebridge drive was sliced off Liam to Umar at cover. Blackie wrapped up an enthralling game with two wickets in the 35th over to secure a Forfarshire victory by 53 runs.

Forfarshire 2nd XI v Perth Doo’cot was cancelled due to rain, and Sunday’s 3rd XI visit from Stoneywood-Dyce XI was abandoned with Forfarshire 3rd XI on 29 for 4.

 1st XIGrange Lost 36 runs
Forfarshire 3rd XI won an exciting Two Counties Cup match against Glenrothes XI at Gilvenbank Park on Thursday night (25th May).

Batting first, a quick 26 from Midge at the top of the order saw Forfarshire reach 41 for 2 after six overs when he was unfortunate to be bowled off his pads. A further three quick wickets left Forfarshire struggling at 47 for 5 however Clark (27) and Andy (17) recovered the situation with a 50-run partnership that took the final total to 121 for 7.

Glenrothes opener Khan took no time to signal his intentions, launching Kailas for a four and a six in the first over. Andy was given similar aggressive treatment that left Forfarshire reeling as the home 50 came up in the fifth over. Rojo removed the dangerman, bowled for 46 in the eighth over, but still Glenrothes looked in little difficulty at 80 for 1 in the 11th over. A stumping by Midge off Rojo came in the 12th over then a double wicket maiden from Ted changed the mood in the middle and Forfarshire sensed the game was back on.

Blair claimed the big wicket of opener Dodds for 33 and along with a well effected run out by Morgan to Midge, Glenrothes slumped to 101 for 7. Two wickets in two balls by Andy all but wrapped up the game in the 19th over before Blair claimed the last wicket in the 20th over to see Forfarshire win by 17 runs.
