McCulloch Cup Final, 2019 – winners – Ferguslie CC

Congratulations to Ferguslie who overcame a determined Tunnock’s Uddingston side in last night’s final held at sunny Glenpark. Uddingston posted a competitive 112 for 6 with Ross Lyons top scoring with 28 not out and was well supported by Muhammad Awais with 27. Pick of the Ferguslie bowlers were young Daoud Tahir 2 for 19 and Mohammad Ghaffar with 2 for 23.

A well timed chase by Ferguslie got them home at 113 for 5 in the nineteenth over with veteran Omer Hussain top scoring with 30 not out. He was well supported by contributions from Anup Vejandla (24) and David Stafford (21). Tidy spells of spin bowling from Ross Lyons 1 for 19 and Aamir Gul 1 for 18 were not enough to prevent Ferguslie reaching the winning score.

A big thank you to Greenock CC for hosting the final and for umpires Allan Haggo and Jeff Meeten for ensuring a smoothly run final!
