FPs in a hole after meeting Irvine Pro

Callum Herd perfectly captured how FPs CS Trophy outing at Irvine would end up when he had to be helped out of a large hole before play could begin.  The unfortunate but hugely amusing incident occurring when a cone marking the hazard had been removed.  Herd forced to change his whites and boots before play.  In a slightly odd day, the supremely talented South African professional Harwood bowled an extremely quick spell to decimate FPs top order and without him, it is likely that FPs would have won, as he was something of a one man bowling attack, but instead FPs slipped to a heavy defeat. There was also the magnificent or disgraceful scenes (depending on your view point) with the home captain squaring up to the neutral umpire over a fairly non contentious no ball. The incident was one of the most amusing and bizarre scenes most FPs players have ever seen as languishing at 27 for 5, Harwood bowled a very short bouncer at Nattrass which easily cleared the batsmen.  No one seemed that bothered apart from the Irvine captain who went from the worlds nicest man, to the worlds angriest man as he and the umpire came close to blows. Youngster Leston D’Costa further upset the rather over excited Irvine side by batting 3 yards down the pitch to the pro and playing his superbly.  It was a very strange game, where the defeated FPs left the game smiling and the victors Irvine were left seemingly angry with life.  Continue reading

Supreme Swiergon Slays Mannofield

Skipper Rob Swiergon hit a majestic 77 from just 47 balls as FPs cruised to victory by 5 wickets with 14 overs to spare.  He was well supported by openers Morrison (31) and Keith (35) who put on 61 for the 1st wicket as FPs easily chased down Mannofield’s 190 for 7. Earlier it had been pace off the ball that helped FPs restrict Mannofield as Roland Knudson took 1 for 25 in 10 overs and Karan Anand 3 for 26 in 10 overs as FPs hauled things back after a good Mannofield start.
