Man of the Match Roland Knudson rolled back the years with a spell of 4 for 6 as the 2nd XI claimed the Bon Accord Cup in fine style at Peoples Park, stunning favourites and league leaders Siyapa. Having posted a very competitive 136 for 8 from 20 overs, Rajaa Monnapillai and Ranald Wilkie ripped through the top order to reduce Siyapa to 8 for 4 in the 3rd over, before Knudson took over claiming a triple wicket maiden as Siyapa were bundled out for just 68. Sean Harrower took the final wicket(2/13) as FPs straight bowling lead to a string of batsmen being bowled or LBW.
With the bat for FPs, there were contributions throughout without anyone making a big score. Clelland 23, Gubbala’s 19 and various double figure contributions from others, as well as 21 extras meant it was a good all round showing from the team.
