Match Report: Forfarshire 3rd XI v Rossie Priory - Sunday 30th June.

A warm Sunday afternoon at Forthill saw the ion8 Forfarshire 3rd XI play host to Rossie Priory.

Winning the toss and bowling first, Liam and Lewis C opened the bowling, Rossie's openers were in no mood for hanging around however and set about playing shot after shot and punishing anything that wasn't on the spot. At drinks, Rossie were still without loss at 93/0. Forfs knew they needed some wickets and eventually Craig provided two of them in two balls. Regular wickets fell from that point onwards with Steve Bedford and Tom Bruce picking them up. Rossie eventually ended their innings 184/7. 

After a break for sausage rolls to be eaten Forfs went out to bat. Steve Bedford and Cammy Walker opening and set about putting the bad ball away and scoring at a decent rate. Cammy was the first wicket to fall for 27. Steve was joined by Craig who hit a quickfire 14 before being caught at cover. When Steve was bowled for 32, Harry and Callum continued to score although a bit slower for a while as Callum appeared to have done something to his knee, for what must be the first time in 3rd XI cricket a runner was called for in the form of Craig. Callum eventually fell for 10 and James joined Harry. The pair put on a very decent stand together and laid into the bowling attack to get Forfs close to the target, when Harry fell there was about 20 runs to get, Clark joined James at the crease and continued where Harry had left off and the runs came in next to no time at all, James hitting the winning runs with a 4 through deep backward square and in the process bringing up his 50. 

Another good win for the 3rd XI and a third on the bounce, attention turns to another triple saturday next weekend when the 3s go up against Glenrothes in Fife. scorecard

Match Report: ion8 Forfarshire 1st XI v Stewarts Melville 1st XI - Saturday 22nd June

Ion8 Forfarshire hoped to maintain their top of the league position when welcoming Stewarts Melville FP to Forthill on Saturday.




An interesting sideshow to the fixture saw the home team’s Craig Wallace playing against his brother Andy who was in the visiting eleven. The visitors batted first and good contributions from Pillay (65), McCallum (55) and Wilkinson (51) helped them to a total of 208 for 8 from their allotted overs. Pick of the home bowlers was once again Brock Ditchmen with 3 for 38.

The home side batted very sensibly in pursuit of victory and terrific innings came from Craig Wallace (76) and skipper Umair Mohammed (73 not out) who both played beautifully. Callum Garden finished the game in style with six over mid-on, much to the delight of the large crowd who had gathered for the annual beer festival. This win keeps ion8 Forfarshire 1st XI at the top of the league and a vital clash against second placed Grange will take place at Forthill next Saturday (29th June).

Match Report: ion8 Forfarshire 3rd XI v Freuchie 2nd XI - Sunday 23rd June

Ion8 Forfarshire 3rd XI welcomed Freuchie 2nd XI to Forthill on Sunday for their latest SPCU division 1 game.

Steady runs came throughout the early overs and towards the end of the innings Fergus Duncan (73 not out) and Harry Hardie (54 not out) played some excellent shots and the innings closed on a healthy total of 233 for 4.

Freuchie batted well in pursuit of the total and in spite of some fine home bowling from Lewis Clark and Fergus Duncan the winning total was in sight for the visitors. Some tense final overs were bowled by Lewis Robinson and Callum Walker and some amazing fielding from Glenn Carnegie was a real highlight. In a game that could have gone either way right up until the last ball, it was the home team that squeezed home by 5 runs in an exciting finish.

This was a great game played in fantastic spirit throughout and was a fine win for the young ion8 Forfarshire side. scorecard
