Team selections [posted 05/05/16]

Team_selection_logo_2016.png It's a busy weekend of cricket with the Under 11s starting things off as their league campaign kicks off down at Irvine.  Saturday then sees home-and-away fixtures against Greenock, with the 'Loc at home and the 'Holmboys on the road.  Sunday's home WU40 Cup tie against Helensburgh then finishes things off.  Teams for all matches are online now, player names being added as they confirm availability.


Derby abandoned [posted 04/05/16]

Tonight's Under 13 ECB Cup derby clash with Clydesdale lasted just 3.3 overs as persistent rain won the day.  Batting first the 'Loc openers - Sobo and Abdul - had looked reasonably comfortable and had taken the score on to 20 without loss, but the good start would count for nowt and so they'll have to do it all again.....tomorrow! 


Sunday matches cancelled [posted 01/05/16]

Both scheduled Sunday matches were cancelled today.  The home WU40 Cup first round match against Helensburgh was rained off, whilst the Academy's opening Sunday League match against Hillhead had been conceded by the Hughenden club earlier in the week.


Saturday double on matchday one [posted 30/04/16]

Today saw the start of a new league campaign for both senior Saturday sides.  The opposition for both was Renfrew.  At King George V Playing Field, the 'Loc posted an impressive 280 for 3 batting first, with Pasty top-scoring with an unbeaten 99, and Jurie and CJ2 making 72 and 60 not out, respectively, on their competitive 'Loc debuts.  Then in the second innings, Beast - with a "4-for" - was the main wicket-taker, as seven bowlers rolled their arms over in dismissing the hosts for 104.  At Shawholm, the 'Holmboys made sure it would be a Saturday winning double for the club as, after posting 208 for 7 batting first, they then restricted Deanpark to just 129 for 7 in the second innings.  For the 'Holmboys there were contributions with bat from Wajid (36), Dr Uzzi (32), Nomi (22) and Crazy Horse (22*).  Then in the Deanpark reply there was a brace of wickets each for Abhi', Roberto and Hunnain.  We've scorecards online (here and here), updated statistics, match reports (here and here), and match photo's from both matches, courtesy of Ali Maddock, in the Gallery.
