Fort re­serves swing into ac­tion

The Oban Times - - Sport -

WITH­OUT a first-team fix­ture this week­end, it was time for the Fort Wil­liam Cricket Club re­serves to step for­ward in the Re­serve Cup.

Bat­ting first against the strong look­ing In­ver­ness-based North­ern Coun­ties, cap­tain Daniel David­son led from the front with a fine 36 re­tired. Big hit­ting from DJ Dun­can and Lewis Gib­son took Fort up to 138-7 from their 30 overs.

In re­ply, Coun­ties made a good start, and were ahead of the ask­ing rate af­ter 15 overs. But David­son and Shep­herd, with two wick­ets apiece, pegged them back and they had no an­swer to the pace of Dun­can who was the pick of the bowlers tak­ing four for three. Coun­ties fell from 71-3 to 89 all out, with Fort win­ning by 49 runs.
