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 v Stoneywood-Dyce - Saturday 1st June.

ion8 Forfarshire maintained their unbeaten position in the CSL Eastern Premier League with a comprehensive 8-wicket win over Stoneywood-Dyce at Forthill on Saturday.



Scott Cameron trapped Stuart Coetzer LBW with the first ball of the match and claimed two further wickets, also LBW, in the first 10 overs to leave Stoneywood 47 for 3. A patient 88 from Liam Lindsay with support from the Stoneywood middle order saw the visitors eventually all out for 177, Jack Hogarth taking 3 for 27 along with two wickets each for Christian Robertson and Brock Ditchmen. 

Forfarshire in reply moved quickly to 50 for 1, Craig Wallace hitting 33 from 27 balls before offering a high catch to mid-on off Kidd. This brought Michael Leask (72no from 38 balls) and Chris Greaves (62no from 47 balls) together, their blistering 120-run partnership saw Forfarshire home in the 20th over, Leask hitting twelve 4s and a 6 while Greaves found the boundary 10 times to finish the game in dominant fashion. scorecard

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.
