Cults Cruise for FPs on back of Swiergon 83

Swiergon top scored with 83

Swiergon top scored with 83 at a murky Duthie Park

FPs completed a rare league double over Cults as they strolled to a 143 run win at Duthie Park.  The result was in no doubt after FPs made 234 for 9, having been asked to bat.  Rob Swiergon hit a composed 83, Alex Keith made 42 and Sajid Hameed struck an enterprising 48.  Cults were never in contention and were rolled over for a fairly sorry 91, John Thomson claiming 4 for 23.
