Scottish Cup - week 5

08 Jul

Drumpellier capped a memorable week by completing their second demolition job on Freuchie in their flawless Scottish Cup campaign.

Having pipped Kelburne in midweek to land the Rowan Trophy for the first time in 29 years, the Coatbridge brigade stepped up the momentum at Muir Road to bury the hapless Fifers.

And again Mohammed Ramzan emerged as the destroyer-in-chief with a devastating spell of bowling.

In their first meeting at Langloan back in May, Ramzan claimed four for six to set up the 10-wicket triumph.

And yesterday he snapped up five for 14, sending the hosts hurtling to 63 all out.

Then to prove there were no demons in the track, Drumps cruised to victory yet again without losing a single man.

Former skipper Fraser Burnett combined with current incumbent Marc Petrie in an unbeaten stand of 108 to steer Arbroath to a quick fire six wicket success against Kelburne at Whirehaugh.

The home side's tally of 151 never looked enough to trouble the visitors and Burnett (63 not out) and Petrie (39 not out) snuffed out any prospect of a fightback as they crossed the finishing line in only 26 overs.

Craig Ramsey also shone for the Lochlands brigade, bagging four for 35.

Qasim Sheikh (33) and Steve McLister (four for 47) offered the most Kelburne resistance.

Matty Parker followed up last weekend's century in vain against Arbroath by smashing 75 - but again it wasn't enough to tilt the balance.

It was Stirling County who rallied and salvaged a tense two-run win.

The Broughty Ferry side needed eight from the final over, however County held their nerve.

There was more fast scoring at Peoples Park, where Stoneywood-Dyce maintained their strong tournament run at the expense of Poloc.

Scotland rookie Michael Leask was the main danger man, picking up two crucial scalps before hitting 71 to carry SD to success by eight wickets - reaching the target of 156 in just 22.4 overs. 

A maiden century by youngster Kyle Macpherson inspired Carlton to a convincing win over struggling Prestwick at Grange Loan.

Paceman Daya Singh was the man who mattered most at The Tryst as Aberdeenshire disposed of Stenhousemuir in clinical fashion.

The Dons had posted 227 for seven before Singh grabbed four for 17, curbing the Stenny response to 91 all out.

There was a surprise in Group F, where Ferguslie shot down Heriot's at Goldenacre, leapfrogging them to the head of the table in the process.

And East Kilbriide completed one of their highest ever run chases to get the better of SMRH at Inverleith.

The home club made 256, then EK hit the target with two wickets and 11 balls left.

Renfrew made full use of home advantage to overpower Dundee HSFP.
