Weekend of rain hits cricket hard

WET WEATHER once again wiped out the local cricket card at the weekend.

Forfarshire’s home match with Freuchie in Scottish Cup Group D, Forthill’s visit to Meigle in the Strathmore and Perthshire Union Premier Division and Forthill Second XI’s home fixture with Rossie Priory in Strathmore and Perthshire Union Division One all fell victim to a combination of heavy rain on Saturday and subsequent adverse ground conditions on Sunday.

However, Forfarshire did manage to fit in some competitive action on Thursday evening (July 5), but with a disappointing outcome, losing by six wickets away to Falkland at Scroggie Park in the semi-finals of the Murgitroyd National 20/20 Caledonia Section.
