Despite what the official website of the league may suggest there was some play at Kintore on Saturday, 16 overs in all before a monsoon ensured that the game was abandoned. On a lively wicket, FPs had progressed to 65 for 2 in those 16 overs and were reasonably placed to post a good total. Morrison had fallen early to a lifting delivery from captain Thom for 2, before Keith fell rather tamely having made an aggressive 32. New man Steinson and captain Swiergon had made 13 and 16 respectively when the heavens opened.
Davey, Herd, Mapplebeck, Nattrass, Sam Knudon, Roland Knudson and Thomson were those who so no cricket at all on a frustrating day, made all the worse by the nice conditions just a few miles away. It also meant that FPs remained 4th, unable to take advantage of Bon Accord’s loss to Mannofield.
