Rain Interferes Again but 2nds win bowl off

Yet again this season rain put paid to cricket as both 1s and 2s were unable to get any play at home to Cults or away to Stonehaven. After 1s lost a bowl off on Thursday to go out of the cup, 2s at least did win their bowl off, by a margin of 2-1, Sean Harrower and Kapil Bali with the hits.

With Freuchie scratching in the CS Challenge Cup on Sunday, FPs have another weekend with no cricket but at least are through to play Huntly at home 2 weeks on Sunday.

Hopefully next weekend will see some better weather.

Magical Mahesh to FPs Rescue

Mahesh Challa came to FPs rescue as he struck 44 batting at number 9 to lift FPs to an improbable 202 for 9. Harry Mapplebck made a very patient 28 to hold things together after FPs had faltered to 52 for 5 and 101 for 6 with only Rob Swiergon (37) making a contribution in the top order. Challa batting at 9, rode his luck but tried to block the good balls and attacked anything in his zone hitting 3 huge sixes. He then nipped in with a key wicket as FPs bowled out a determined Ellon for 170 despite a poor day in the field where many chances went down. Top bowlers were Callum Herd (2/29) and Karan Anand (3/38), for the visitors Rich Greenfield took an excellent 5 for. Continue reading
