FPs Ease Past Crescent

FPs confirmed a 2nd place finish with a comfortable 7 wicket win at home to Crescent.  It is their highest finish in many a year and the latest win was seldom in doubt.  With the exception of the supreme talents of opener Ahmed who made a fine 57, Crescent never really threatened and were bowled out for just 104, Worsley and Mapplebeck both taking 3 for 35.  The chase was then comfortable with Keith blasting a six to finish things to reach 51 not and he was well supported by High who made 20 not out.

Last game lessons for 3rds

The final league match of a soggy season for AGSFP’s 3rd XI was against Methlick 2nds at FP’s adopted home at the Duthie Park. The weather was hot and sunny and perfect for cricket, until the captains went out to the middle for the toss, when the rain started right on cue.

The heavy shower gave the FP’s captain a chance to introduce this weeks seasons debutantes David Blues and Ran Ganapathi to the rest of the team, Kingshuk Ghosh, Aly MacDonald, Rajaa Monnapillai, Matthew McCaughtrie, Divyesh Selvaraj, Jim Lee, Bejoy Joseph, Iain Bell.

Academy Test of FPs Temper

If you enjoy your cricket lasting 7 hours, players turning up half way through wearing blue tracksuits, doubt about which players were actually named in the starting line-up, numerous wicketkeeping changes throughout the 2nd innings, various stoppages for no particular reason, batsmen not walking for edges, a string of utterly mystifying umpiring decisions and numerous 5 ball overs then Rubislaw was the place to be on Saturday. A fairly poor FPs display fitted in perfectly with the rather farcical circumstances in which the game was played, Academy winning by 52 runs when the game mercifully ended. Continue reading
