Weekend Results - 21st & 22nd June
24th June 2014
Carlton v Autoecosse Forfarshire: Carlton reached 37 for no loss when Liam made the breakthrough that saw Watts well caught by Matty at gulley, and shortly after he trapped Mommsen LBW to leave Carlton 41-2. Liam struck again when McCann edged behind to Neil and just before drinks, a diving catch from Aman while running backwards up the Grange Loan hill saw Carlton in further trouble at 85-4. From there, however, Gardiner took control of the innings and his sparkling 118 from 126 balls led a recovery in the second half of the Carlton innings that saw them post 272 for 9 after 50 overs, Liam finishing with 3 for 43.
The Forfs innings started positively with Aaron striking three early boundaries against the opening attack of Evans and Freshwater but his dismissal for 15 started a frequent fall of wickets, and despite a defiant 22 not out from Andy, Forfs were all out for 113 in 30.1 overs. scorecard
Autoecosse Forthill v Gordonians: A remarkable spell of 5 for 6 from 9 overs from Howie saw Forthill well on top of Gordonians in the early stages of their North East Championship match but a blistering 50 from Devadas batting at number nine saw a late recovery and a final total of 162 all out. Forthill were reduced to ten men before the game had started after Samir suffered a freak slash to his leg in the warm-up that required stitches and were furthered hampered when Scott pulled a hamstring while bowling. In reply, Forthill were bowled out for 98, Howie hitting 27 and Quinno 16 not out.
Autoecosse Forthill 2nd XI v Kinloch: Forthill 2nd XI's top of the table clash with Kinloch on Sunday saw Forthill post an under par 104, Simmy top-scoring with 18, which Kinloch were able to chase down with the loss of 3 wickets. scorecard & match report
