FPs Bounce Back in CS Trophy

Fraser Proud made his maiden FPs 50

FPs bounced back impressively from their disastrous batting display on Saturday to easily see off Huntly in the CS Challenge Trophy by 9 wickets. Harry Mapplebeck set the tone claiming 5 for 19 from his 8 overs as Huntly were bundled out for just 114. It was never going to be enough as FPs took just 18 overs to knock off the runs for just the loss of Arul Senthil (10), Fraser Proud making a classy 63 not out and Geoff Morrison 32 not out in an unbroken stand of 69.

FPs Have Day to Forget

FPs had a disastrous day with the bat as they were shot out for just 38 on a sporting Links wicket to lose to Bon Accord by 109 runs and also relinquish top spot in Grade 1. Having reduced on Accord to 77 for 7, Khan hit an enterprising 54 at number 9 as Bons recovered to post 147 all out. FPs chase started disastrously as they lost Nattrass and Morrison in the 1st over and they never recovered as not one batsman registered double figures. For Bons Awan and Mirza both bowled very well to claim 3 wickets each early on.

Karan Ton Propels FPs to Big Win

Keith made another 50 to set the platform

Karan Anand struck his 2nd ton of the season as FPs racked up 316 for 6 before bowling out a young Mannofield team for 130 for a 186 run win. Anand was imperious as he notched his century in just 59 balls, his 2nd fiftty taking just 25 balls. It was not the usual brutal effort, a far more fluent affair with 9 fours and 4 sixes. Alex Keith also hit a half century and Harry Mapplebeck 30 not out as he and Anand shared 121 unbeaten for the 7th wicket in 13 overs. Leading wicket taker Callum Herd then claimed 4 victims (4/27) and was well supported by Fraser Proud (2/21) and John Thomson (2/19).
