79-run win for Forthill at Arbroath

Arbroath v Autoecosse Forthill

Autoecosse Forthill made the short journey along the coast to Arbroath on Saturday to meet Arbroath in a S&PCU Premier Division match.

The visitors lost four wickets cheaply but with Garden batting well the total reached 103 before he become the fifth man out.

Quinn’s return from injury saw him given an all-rounder position in the second team and he took the opportunity to hit 30 not out, including a glorious six over extra cover and in a 91-run partnership with Andy Cameron, 49 not out, took Forthill up to 196 for 6 at the end of 45 overs.

Arbroath’s openers looked in little difficulty and had reached a comfortable 42 for no wicket when Quinn, 2 for 20, had Swann caught by Garden then soon after bowled Cameron. The game started to swing in Forthill’s direction.

Three wickets in four balls for Walker quickly gave Forthill the upper hand, and with the total limping towards three figures, two wickets in an over from Andy Cameron in addition to two earlier catches saw him complete a fine day’s work and round off a 79-run win.
