Freuchie never really got going in the face of some tight Falkland bowling and fielding, and finished well short.

I t was encouraging to see cricket played again, and a feature of the game was that a young girl played for each side and made a significant contributions to the game, Lois Wilkinson of Freuchie and Emma Halliwell of Falkland.

Scoreline: Falkland 173 for 5 (G Watson 50, A Senthil 41, A Ferguson 26 not out) Freuchie 96 for 7 (S Munro 28, R Birrell 26)
