Autoecosse Forthill v

Arbroath United XI

Batting first, Forthill posted 226 for 5 with Callum Garden batting through the innings and reaching his first century in 106 balls. In reply, Arbroath looked to be heading for victory with 5 overs and 40 runs required, but two vital wickets for Glenn Carnegie in the 41st over swung the game back towards Forthill, Christian Robertson having earlier taken 3 for 39 including having Cameron caught behind for 71. Arbroath continued to hit out, but a third wicket for Carnegie and a stumping off Gordon Walker saw Arbroath bowled out in the 44th over for 206.
