Seesaw match at Castle Park

At Castle Park on Saturday, Forthill had Huntly in trouble early after three quick wickets but a 72 from Ferguson saw a recovery.

However a further fightback from Forthill in the S&PCU Premier Division fixture saw Huntly reach 158 for 8 with G. Walker taking 3 for 58. A late order half century from Tait undid the good work and Huntly reached a challenging 240 all out.

G. Garden and Ross combined to open the batting for the first time, and a hard hit 15 from Ross got Forthill off to a quick start, but with only G. Garden, 75 and Cameron, 22, resisting the home attack, Forthill were bowled out for 168.
