Team to play 2020 at Huntly – Thursday 8th 6pm

Cricket Lineup 8th July Huntly (A) 2020

Ellon Overpower 2s

Rajaa did his best with bat (48) and ball (1-31) to inspire 2s

Ellon proved too strong for 2s with the home side running out 8 wicket winners. 2s did OK with the bat making 134 all out in 37.4 overs which perhaps would have been worth more on a shorter outfield. Rajaa Monnapillai was the top scorer with 48 while Aman Sood made 20 and Paul Norwood 18, in a stand of 50 for the 5th wicket. FPs then started brightly with the ball reducing Ellon to 14 for 2 as Monnapillai and Javaid took early wickets. However an unbeaten stand of 121 between Jonathan Barrett (59no) and George Buchan (56no) ensured there was to be no surprise away win as 2s had to accept just the 9 points for their efforts.

Grammar Down Grampian

Karan Anand was back in form with the bat

FPs remained at the top of Grade 1 with a comfortable 6 wicket win against Grampian, chasing down the visitors 194 for 7 with over 10 overs to spare. Karan Anand was back to his destructive best hammering 52 not out off 25 balls, while Fraser Proud made a graceful 46 not out having made a century against the same opposition last week. Skipper Rob Swiergon was out for the 1st time on league duty but still made 42 as the FP middle order ensured Grampian’s total was under par on a rapid Rubislaw outfield.

Reid Ton Sinks FPs in 2020

Kenny Reid hit a brilliant century for Aberdeenshire in the latest 2020 match as the visitors were winners by 55 runs at Rubislaw. The former Alex Keith protege showed all his power in making 105 off just 44 balls as Aberdeenshire racked up 236 for 3 in their 20 overs. He was well supported by Joseph Horne who made 40 and Lewis Munro who struck 40 not out. All the FP bowlers inflicted damage, Rob Swiergon at least claiming 2 for 47.

FPs started the chase well, putting in 72 for 1 in the powerplay, to get ahead of the rate, but after they lost Fraser Proud for 48 off 24 balls, LBW to Chandu bowling off-breaks round the wicket no less, the chase faltered and FPs fell behind the rate. Alex Keith did keep faint hopes alive with a determined 65 not out but the total was too much and Aberdeenshire was able to close out a deserved win.
