Forfarshire’s promising start fizzles out

FORFARSHIRE had mixed fortunes in the latest series of matches in the Clubsport Indoor Sixes League at the Mayfield Sports Centre, Dundee, last Wednesday.

The evening began well for ‘Shire with a 30-run victory over Cupar, but this was followed by a 62-run defeat from defending champions Rossie Priory.

In the other two matches, Rossie and Cupar both defeated Strathmore, who along with bottom-of-the-table Norwood can now no longer qualify for the latter stages of the competition.

Results: Rossie Priory 129, Strathmore 93; Forfarshire 129, Cupar 99; Strathmore 116, Cupar 123; Forfarshire 70, Rossie Priory 132.
