Latest "Kwik Cricket" news [posted 03/11/19]

Under_11s_031119

Our Under 11s were back in indoor "Kwik Cricket" action this morning, taking on the Hillhead|West of Scotland combined side and Clydesdale at Uddingston Grammar School Sports Hall.  First up was the clash with the combined side, the Poloc youngsters taking two wickets as Hillhead|West of Scotland scored 50.  Then in their reply the side lost one more wicket than their opponents whilst managing 34 off the bat.  This left the final scores 62 and 42 respectively, the combined side taking the win. 

 

The second match, as last week, was a closer affair, the 'Loc youngsters just missing out on the win as Clydesdale ended up on 53 to their 50.  Both sides took four wickets, the Titwood Under 11s scoring 37 runs to Poloc's 34. 

Great fun again though, and thanks to Imran Ameer for managing the side today and sending on the match scores and team photo'. 

 

Indoor cricket starts [posted 01/11/19]

Indoor Under 11s in "Kwik Cricket" action [posted 27/10/19]

The Under 11s (pictured, below) were in six-a-side indoor "Kwik Cricket" action today, taking on East Renfrewshire and East Kilbride this morning in the round of matches in the winter's programme. First up was the match against East Renfrewshire.  Batting first the Poloc youngsters scored 39 for 5 in their six overs, their opponents scoring 60 for 3 in theirs.  With 4 runs being gained for taking an opposition wicket this left the respective scores as 51 played 80, the "Woodfarm Pavilion" youngsters recording the W.

Then in game two, against East Kilbride, the side posted an improved 48 for 4, though would still end up on the losing side as their opponents scored 46 for 1.  And so despite scoring more runs off their bats, East Kilbride's loss of just the one wicket saw the final scores as 52 played 60.  Good fun all round though, and good to get the winter's indoor programme up-and-running.  The Under 11s are back in action again next Sunday morning when they take on the Hillhead|West of Scotland combined side and Clydesdale, again at Uddingston Grammar School.
