Derby joy for on-form ‘Shire at Lochlands

FORFARSHIRE had an easy time at Lochlands on Saturday when Arbroath were bowled out for 50 chasing Forfarshire’s 221.

But it was a different story in the equivalent Strathmore Union match at Forthill where Arbroath United chased down 222 to win.

Forthill 2nd XI raced to 285 for 8 at Dawson Park against Norwood thanks to a hard hit 102 from Adam Hill.

Under-13s

Arbroath v Ferry Forfs

The ‘Ferry Forfs’ under 13s batted first on a warm, sunny evening at Lochlands last Wednesday, and were able to guide the score to a very respectable 128.

The Forfs bowling was much tighter than in the previous encounter at Lochlands and constant pressure meant Arbroath were restricted to a just under four an over in the first 13 overs.

Arbroath: Total - 17.4 overs all out 84; Ferry Forfs: Total - 4 wickets (20 overs) 128.

Result: Ferry Forfs Under-13s won by 44 runs.

Arbroath v Forfarshire

Brendan Ford (23) and Matthew Parker (16) gave Forfarshire a solid start at Lochlands on Saturday before both fell to Small, but it was a third wicket partnership of 110 between Craig Wallace (66 from 83 balls) and Scott Galloway (53 from 68 balls) that saw Forfarshire look set for a good total. The departure of Galloway, bowled by Small, changed the tone of the innings and from a dominant position Forfarshire lost wickets quickly, eight wickets falling for 59 runs as the Forfs were bowled out for 221.

Aman trapped McGill LBW in the first over of the Arbroath innings, but Reisima and Vithana batted well until six overs later Reisima was bowled and Arbroath were 20 for 2. Ritchie was then bowled for a duck and in the next over Vithana was bowled by Aman Bailwal. C. Burnett followed soon after to give Bailwal his fourth wicket and from there Graeme Black brought a swift end to the game with three wickets in two overs as Arbroath stumbled to 50 all out, Bailwal taking 4 for 19 and Black 3 for 3.

Forthill v Arbroath United

Two early wickets for Samir Hill saw the visitors 8 for 2 after three overs, but a match winning partnership between Swan (89) and Edwards (70 not out) saw Arbroath recover from 40 for 3 to win by 6 wickets with 8 overs remaining.
