Winter indoor cricket [posted 11/10/17]

The first winter indoor cricket takes place this Sunday, the 15th of October, at Hutchesons' Grammar School Sports Hall between 2pm and 4pm.  It's open to all players aged over 16, and there will be a £5 per person charge to cover the sports hall hire charge. 


Under 13s finish runners-up [posted 16/09/17]

The Under 13s finished a good season, that saw them reach the Finals Day of both the Scottish Cup and League, this afternoon at Meikleriggs by finishing runners-up in the league after defeat to Clydesdale in the league Finals Day final.  After beating Glasgow Accies by 11 runs in a closely-fought semi-final, the side then couldn't make it three wins in a row in 2017 against their near-neighbours from Crossmyloof, going down by four wickets in a low-scoring final.  In both matches it's fair to say that the batters struggled, only Abdullah (32* against Glasgow Accies) making a telling contribution with the bat.  Momin - with two 6s - also made a cameo score in the final after the top order had failed, but these two aside it was a day for the bowlers.  And there were some good bowling performances: Jamesy returned 3.2-0-14-4 in the semi-final and 2 for 12 in the final, whilst Ubaid-Raza's bowling in the final was the standout bowling performance in that match, Raza returning figures of 4-2-5-1.  But the bowlers' efforts wouldn't quite be enough to get the batters out of jail twice and so the side had to be content with a runners-up spot.  Plenty to be pleased with though over a long [Ed: a wet!] season, and still lots of ptential in this group of young players.  And, congratulations to Clydesdale on their win. 


Under 13s in Finals Day action [posted 14/09/17]

The Under 13s' league season finishes this Saturday with their involvement Finals Day.  Their match with Glasgow Accies is at 1.45pm, the winner then taking on the winner of the other play-off semi-final between Clydesdale and Glasgow Accies. Good luck to the Under 13s. 


Scotland A selection [posted 12/09/17]

The club's delighted and proud that Ihtisham Malik and Owais Shah have been selected for the Scotland A side to take on a Kent/Northants combined 2nd XI side in a three-day game starting today.  Good luck to both players.


Washed away.....again! [posted 08/09/17]

Of course, tonight's Under 13 League Cup semi-final against Ferguslie was cancelled!  Why wouldn't it be, like almost every other match in the last month.  The ground at Meikleriggs was, like Shawholm, simply too wet to allow play.


Cancellation [posted 04/09/17]

Tonight's junior practice (Under 10 and 11) and the rearranged Under 13 league match against the Irvine|Kilmarnock combined side are both off because of the wet weather. 


Under 18s slump to semi-final defeat [posted 03/09/17]


The Under 18s took on Carlton today in the first semi-final of the Scottish Cup, on Finals Day at Titwood.  However the side wouldn't progress any further in the competition as they unperformed on the day to end up losing by 44 runs to their Edinburgh opponents.  We've got the scorecard online, as well as a short match report, and updated Under 18 statistics and averages.


Representative selection [posted 02/09/17]

Ihtisham Malik and Owais Shah have been selected for the Western Warriors squad to take on the Eastern Knights in the final CS T20 Blitz match of the season on Sunday in Edinburgh.  With the club's Under 18 side in Scottish Cup Finals Day action on the same day, we're grateful for the Warriors' management subsequently releasing Owais to play for the club. 


Under 18s win on the north side [posted 31/08/17]


A match finally beat the weather!  And it was the Under 18s who were the lucky side, getting their rescheduled away league fixture at New Anniesland played this evening.  The first match between the sides was abandoned back in mid-summer, but tonight's game was blessed with pleasant Autumn sunshine and saw a competitive game played out in a reduced eighteen-overs-a-side contest.  We've got the scorecard online, as well as a short match report on the Under 18s' 28-run win, and updated statistics and averages and league tables.
