FORFARSHIRE and Forthill both suffered defeats on Saturday, but Forthill 2nd XI won a high scoring encounter with Perth Doo’cot XI at Forthill on Sunday.

Grange v Forfarshire

Forthill Batsman Lindsay Garden.

Forthill Batsman Lindsay Garden.

In a Cricket Scotland League match at Raeburn Place on Saturday, 85 from Maiden along with 33 not out from Holmes saw Grange score steadily throughout before Davidson, 14 not out in the final over, helped the home club to post 245 for 7.

In Forfarshire’s reply, Brendan Ford was out early, being caught by Patel at mid-off from the bowling of Routray. Matthew Parker (21) and Craig Wallace (42) batted comfortably before Parker was bowled.

The Forfs’ runs slowed further when Scott Galloway was caught without scoring to see the score sit on 44 for 3. Aman Bailwal followed quickly and although some resistance was offered by the partnership of Tony Weed and Craig Wallace and 18 from Scott Cameron, it was all in vain as Forfs slumped to 139 all out

Forthill 2nd XI v Perth

Doo’cot 2nd XI

ON SUNDAY, the third team welcomed Perth Doo’cot 2nd XI to Forthill and won a high scoring contest. The partnership of Clark McConnachie (71) and Andy Cameron (62) and a blistering 75 not out from Adam Hill saw Forthill 2nd XI race to 285 for 3 at the end of 45 overs.

Tight opening spells from Christian Robertson and Jack Hogarth seemed to have Forthill in command, but 54 from Le Roux and 49 from Taylor saw Perth score well mid-innings. However, the return of Hogarth, 4 for 26, and two wickets apiece for Chris Welsh and Andy Cameron saw Forthill 2nd XI through to a fine victory.
