Forfarshire u18 Win Scottish Cup

Forfarshire under 18s were crowned Scottish Cup champions on Sunday after an emphatic 10 wicket win over Clydesdale following an earlier thrilling last over win against Grange at Titwood.  video

A low covers catch by Scott off Christian in the 6th over gave the young Forfs confidence against the Grange top order, then in the 7th over Midge took a comfortable catch off Will, also at cover, to see both openers back in the pavilion. Will held a high boundary catch off Rory in the 14th over that left Grange 69 for 3 and the Forfs were further encouraged by a superb direct hit runout by James that helped slow the scoring in the second half of the innings. A late onslaught from Dickinson saw 18 taken from the 19th over followed by 10 from the last to give the Grange total a boost and set Forfarshire 115 to win.

Forfs lost Rojo and Scott inside of 2 overs before Christian stepped up to be the the semi-final hero, hitting an unbeaten 62. The last 4 overs saw 30 needed which looked a stiff task but Christian released the pressure with a boundary to long off and then later a flick through square leg to take Forfs within sight of a place in the final. Will brought up the Forfs 100 before falling to Aslam with 15 needed from as many balls. Midge and Christian scampered the remaining runs to secure a well deserved win with 3 balls remaining.  scorecard

In the final, Clydesdale reached 42 for no wicket with ease before Rory led a Forfs fight-back with three wickets and a direct hit run out. Jake held a dramatic one handed catch to give Blair the first of his two wickets that saw Clydesdale 78 for 6 after 16 overs before a late flurry of boundaries saw Forfarshire require 110 to win.

Callum (59 not out) and Rory (43 not out) both started quickly and a series of well struck boundaries quickly saw Forfarshire well on their way to a sucessful run chase. With growing confidence and in failing light, Callum and Rory produced a superb display of batting to see Forfarshire through to a 10 wicket win with almost 6 overs remaining.  scorecard
Forfarshire are T20 Murgitroyd Champions

Forfarshire have been crowned national T20 champions after wins over Watsonians and Poloc in the finals of the Murgitroyd T20 knockout.

On a beautiful day at Shawholm, Watsonians set Forfarshire an imposing 149 to win in the second semi-final. Craig (58 from 38 balls) and Ryan (22 from 27 balls) started well, taking the score to 69 in the 9th over when Ryan was bowled by Sadler. Leasky then unleashed an assault on the Watsonians attack that included eight 4s and three towering 6s in a 29-ball innings of 57 that along with Craig added 73 in 7 overs to take Forfarshire within sight of victory. Sands then picked up the wickets of Wallace, Bailwal and Parker as the Forfs batsmen set about finishing the game quickly before a place in the final was secured in the 17th over.

The final against the hosts saw Graham and Shah give Poloc a steady start in the face of accurate bowling from the Forfs, Aman and Umair both taking 2 wickets in Poloc’s 103 for 7.The second innings was dominated by a memorable 16-ball half century from Craig. His intent was clear from the first over that included a six and two fours, and this was repeated in the third over followed by two further straight hits that cleared the boundary by some distance and saw Forfarshire record a 7 wicket win in the 10th over.  video
Forthill Win North East Championship

Forthill won the North East Championship on Saturday - the first time the premier division title of the Strathmore & Perthshire Cricket Union has rested at Forthill since 1940. 

Rain threatened to send the title race into the final week of the season but improving weather saw a 40-over match go ahead in which Forthill completed a comprehensive 106 run win over Kinloch to give an unassailable lead over challengers Gordonians at the top of the NEC league table. Kinloch asked Forthill to bat first and a second wicket partnership of 81 between Callum (70) and Christian (56) saw Forthill off to a confident start before a blistering 25-ball half century from Richard that included four 6s and four 4s elevated Forthill to 236 for 8 after 40 overs. 

Two wickets for Samir followed by 3 for 27 from Blackie quickly gave Forthill the upper hand as Kinloch eased along to 130 for 8 in their 40 overs to see the league trophy return to Forthill after an absence of 75 years. 

The 1940 league win, accompanied by success in the Counties Cup, saw the then named Forthill XI bowl out Gordonians for 40 at Seafield in Aberdeen to record a six wicket victory in a league season of 13 wins, 1 loss and 1 draw from 15 matches compared to this season’s 11 wins from 13 starts to date. Notable performers were J.S.Farquhar who took 55 wickets at just 7.67 runs apiece and J.S.Cliffe, a former Fifeshire professional who was signed for the last three matches of the season and returned 27 wickets at just 5.66 runs each in those final games.
Forthill 2nd XI Win Two Counties Cup

Forthill 2nd XI have won the Two Counties Cup at the SPCU Cup Finals day held at Doo’cot Park on Sunday. 

A large travelling support saw Forthill take to the field and restrict Breadalbane to 70 before chasing down the target with 9 wickets and 8 overs remaining.  video

Jake opened the bowling with two maidens and with Ted conceding only 2 runs from his first two overs, Forthill were quickly on top. A wicket in each of the next four overs delighted the crowd and reduced Breadalbane to 16 for 4. Blair started and ended his four over spell with a wicket then the return of Jake saw top scorer Bax bowled for 28 as Forthill were set 71 to win.

The Forthill response saw Cameron (30) and Callum (24 not out) take the score to 67 before Cameron was bowled which handed Steven the opportunity to score the winning runs and retain the Two Counties Cup for another year.

Forthill's Three Counties Cup run came unstuck at the hands of eventual winners Gordonians when they lost the semi-final by 23 runs. 
Forthill Win Top of NEC Table Clash 
Forthill won an entertaining match with Meigle at Forthill on Saturday to maintain their lead at the top of the SPCU North East Championship. 

Meigle's Matthew Farmer found conditions to his liking and a sharp catch from Drummy low to his right saw Howie join Rojo back in the pavilion by the sixth over. Farmers next over accounted for Elliot and Richard to leave Forthill reeling at 24 for 4 after 8 overs. 

Hogi and Neil then saw off the challenge of Farmer and Neave to establish a 108 run partnership for the 5th wicket that was only broken when Hogi looked to clear mid-off in the closing overs but instead found the hands of Neave. Neil finished unbeaten on 68 to guide Forthill up to 182 for 7, with Glenn adding a useful 17 in the final overs. 

Hogi was back in the game in the third over second innings when Howie held a flying slip catch to dismiss Kunje and with Samir offering no width at the other end the score moved slowly to 35 for 1 in the 15th when Lease played on a delivery from Ted to give the first of his 4 wickets. With Meigle on 75 for 5, Clark and Farmer provided stout resistance and took Meigle to 115 when Glenn held a good catch off Howie for a much needed breakthrough. Drummond joined Farmer and continued to keep up with the required rate but after both fell to excellent catches in the deep by Samir and then Hogi, all off Rojo's bowling, Forthill finally took control of the game. With 25 needed from the final 3 overs the Meigle innings was brought to an end by a well effected run out to hand Forthill a 14 run victory in a well contested match. Forthill remain 21 points ahead of Gordonians from 12 games played with two weeks of the season remaining. 

Beghin Century in Falkland Win & Thriller at Doo'cot

Forfarshire batted first at Forthill and an excellent 51 from Christian along with 50 from Hoggy saw Forfarshire well placed at 97 for no wicket in the 22nd over. After Hoggy was stumped off Buitendag, the youthful pairing of Christian and Rojo looked composed in the middle until a run out cut short Rojo’s innings and shortly after Christian offered a catch to square leg to leave Forfs 117 for 3. Graeme immediately looked positive against the visiting attack and raced to 50 from just 35 balls and completed a well struck century from 59 balls that included eight 4s and three 6s as Forfs posted a healthy 286 for 9 from 50 overs.

Torrential rain delayed the re-start and saw Falkland set 215 to win from 30 overs. Beghin and Garden combined to dismiss overseas player Buitendag in the 2nd over and Henderson followed in the 9th bowled by Scott as Forfs took the upper hand in the game however Doig (46) continued to strike the ball well and threatened to take Falkland close, but Andy beat his defences in the 19th over that left Falkland too much to do and they were bowled out for 134, Glenn taking 3 for 8 to wrap up the game.

Forthill’s visit to Doo’cot Park saw a low scoring rain affected match give Forthill a well deserved victory to maintain a narrow lead at the top of the North East Championship. Batting first, Forthill lost Simmy and Richard early to Perth’s Walker and Koo, Howie (20) and Blackie (18) repaired some of the damage but when both fell within the space of an over, the score looked ominous at 47 for 4. A brief 13 from Adam added valuable runs before Patterson accounted for remaining batsmen and left Forthill reeling at 83 all out. 

Perth looked to be easing to victory at 33 for 1, but two wickets in two balls from Blackie (2 for 13) removed Walker and Wigley to lift Forthill spirits at 33 for 3. A change of ends for Hogi brought Forthill firmly back into the game with two quick wickets at 44 for 5, with Samir (2 for 15) having previously removed both openers. Two wickets for as many runs by Howie left Hogi to wrap up the game in consecutive balls and send Perth tumbling to 61 all out, Hogi finishing with 4 for 31.
