Have your say

FORTHILL got their season off to the ideal start on Saturday with an 80-run victory over Meigle at Forthill, while in Aberfeldy, Forthill 2nd XI lost by 5 wickets to Breadalbane.

Forfarshire’s Scottish Cup match against Freuchie was cancelled due to last week’s rain. Forthill 3rd XI made their debut against St Modans XI at Forthill on Sunday and were involved in a last-over thiller, with St Modans sneaking home with just one ball to spare.

Forthill v Meigle

Forthill batted first on a soft wicket, and both Leese and Morrison for Meigle were rewarded with an early wicket apiece. Scott Galloway, 64, and Scott Cameron, 13, took the total up to 100 before both fell. A steady 24 not out from Callum Walker along with good support from Jack Hogarth saw Forthill up to 150 before the last wicket fell.

At 40 for 2, Meigle were making good progress in their run chase but the introduction of Dennis Petrie had an immediate effect and a flurry of wickets saw Meigle all out for 70 with Dennis Petrie taking 4 for 12.

Breadalbane v Forthill 2nd XI

In Aberfeldy, Forthill 2nd XI were put in on a very soft Victoria Park wicket and between them Bryce, 41, Scott, 31, Clark, 27 not out, and Glenn, 26, saw 168 for 6 scored in 45 overs.

Excellent batting by Wimberley, 77, took the game away from Forthill, but Blair Walker trapped him LBW for the first of his two wickets. A wicket apiece for Glenn Carnegie, Christian Robertson and Craig McConnachie completed the Forthill wickets, and Breadalbane won by five wickets, but with just three overs to spare.

Forthill 3rd XI v St Modans

Forthill 3rd XI chose to bat first, and hit a good 172 with Callum Walker, 35, Abdullah Awan, 27, and Andy Cameron, 25, the top-scorers.

St Modans reached 83 for no loss when a missjudged single saw Finlay McNicoll’s pick-up and throw to get a run-out and two further wickets quickly fell to leave St Modans on 89 for 3 after 24 overs.

The young Forfs stuck to their task well and steady spells from Callum Walker, Scott Cameron and Rory Johnston set up a great finish with 14 required from 12 balls which St Modans achieved with one ball to spare.
