Match Report: ion8 Forfarshire 3rd XI v Falkland 3rd XI - Saturday 25th May
ion8 Forfarshire 3rd XI drove through steady drizzle all the way to Falkland for their league game on Saturday. With Cammy Walker unwell with a migraine from trying to answer quiz questions the night before, vice captain Liam Latto was in charge.
Batting first in persistent rain, wickets fell regularly in spite of a good innings from Ross and at 87 for 9 after 27 overs an early finish was on the cards. However Lewis batted superbly and assisted by the perhaps surprise batting figure of Gordon Walker they held up the close of the innings for 8 overs and added valuable runs to take the total to 104.
Tea was taken with the highlight a nice light fluffy sponge cake and the rain got heavier. A surprise and sudden break in the weather saw play resume, but with Michael Watson charging in and slipping when delivering the ball, play was brought to a halt for the day.
Both teams tried hard to get a game played in horrible conditions however the weather ended up the winner.
