FPs Crash Bons Party Again

If you are ever having a coronation or a celebration then don’t invite the Grammar FPs cricket team as they have managed to build up a nice habit of ruining these events. Bon Accord looked certain to complete a 100% record in 2015, until FPs defeated them of the final day and incredibly lightening struck twice as FPs did it again in 2016 as they easily moved to a 5 wicket win. Bon Accord were confirmed as champions, but it was only the 3rd game they have lost in the last year, all to FPs.

Karan Anand took 4 for 33 and then struck an aggressive 43 but the key strikes came from Sajid Hameed who removed danger men Awan and Mirza cheaply.  FPs then batted with aggression as Morrison with 23 and Davey 30, ensured Anand’s efforts were well supported. Continue reading

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.
