FPs are delighted to have brand new kit this season supplied by club sponsors Deethya Solutions and Shri Bheemas. The kit will arrive this week in time for the opening league games. FPs are very grateful to both businesses for their on-going support.
FPs 1st XI eased to victory by 78 runs against Gordonians’ 2nd XI to retain the Fire Shield in a good workout ahead of the new season.

Despite the club’s best efforts, the council were not agreeable to us playing on any ground on 19th April and as such the proposed 2nd XI friendly with Knightriders will not take place. The 1st XI friendly goes ahead against Gordonians at Countesswells, while the 3rd XI match will take place at Dunecht. Hopefully we will manage to involve as many players as we can on 19th, but the following week with the league campaign starting, 3 games will be guaranteed, as long as travellers, bad weather, scratchings etc do not intervene…..
The 2014 fixtures have now been fully updated on the website. League starts on 26th April, with friendlies the week before.
The outdoor nets start this Thursday (10th April) at 615pm at Rubislaw.
