Match Report

A fantastic day at Guthrie Park Brechin. The weather was brilliant, the hospitality as always outstanding and as good a Forty Club performance as I can remember. All four batsmen that batted were in good touch with debutant Stuart Campbell stroking a classy 42, opening partner Brendon Hillyard a robust 31, but pride of place to Dinesh Bailwal and Neil McHattie. Dinesh (76 no) and Neil (74 no) put on 154 unbeaten for the third wicket as we closed on 246-2. Unfortunately for Brechin the bowlers and fielders were also on top form. Bob Angus (2-20) and Brian Van Rooyen (3-15) opened up and soon had Brechin struggling at 34-5. Their bowling had been supported by two outstanding catches by Stuart Campbell at slip and Neil McHattie behind the stumps. Our two spinners Caleb Alexander (1-19) and Cameron Caskie (3-8) bowled us to the edge of victory before Iain Redmond (1-8) wrapped it up with another brilliant catch form Paul Coffey doing for the last wicket.
