The continuing wash-out [posted 17/08/18]

Tonight's Under 14 match against Kilmarnock became the latast in a now growing list of weather victims this week as it was cancelled due to the persistent heavy rain.  Also off tonight is senior net practice. 

 

Weekend fixtures [posted 17/08/18]

After a near-washout of a week, tonight sees the first of six scheduled matches for the club over the next four days: Kilmarnock are tonight's visitors in a re-arranged league fixture.  Saturday's two senior men's league matches then see Dumfries come to Glasgow, and Shawholm go to Renfrew to take on Deanpark.  Then on Sunday the Under 18s have an early start as they host Carlton in the Scottish Cup, this match being carried over from last Sunday when.....it was rained off.  It's an 11am start on Sunday.  Also on Sunday the Panthers go to New Cambusdoon to play Ayr in the Sunday League before Monday's Under 12 match at The Tryst against Stenhousemuir brings the curtain down on the weekend's scheduled matches. 

 

Monday night blues for junior sides [posted 13/08/18] 

WDJCU_logo Both the junior sides in action this evening suffered losses unfortunately.  At Shawholm the Under 12s were well beaten by a strong, and much bigger and older, East Kilbride|Weirs combined side, the 'Loc youngsters going down by 123 runs.  Meanwhile down at Glenpark the Under 16s were also on the wrong result of the result, their six-wicket defeat seeing them exit the Frank Smith Trophy at the hands of Greenock.

Batting first, the 'Loc set their hosts the pretty reasonable target of 143 to win, thanks to useful contributions from Hassaan (43), Hasan (35) and Abdul (27), their combined 105 coming from just 81 balls.  However the bowlers couldn't quite defend 142, Greenock running out winners on the last ball of the eighteenth over, Forrest top-scoring with a 28-ball 64.  We've got the scorecards from tonight's matches online, alongwith updated stat's

 

Representative selections [posted 13/08/18]

Abataha Maqsood is in action for Scotland Women Under 21 again this week in their match against Durham Academy.  Also in Scotland age-group action are Amaan Ramzan and Kess Sajjad who are included in the Scotland Under 17 squad for its Celtic Cup matches against Ireland at New Cambusdoon.

 

Matches off [posted 12/08/18]

This morning's Under 18 Scottish Cup tie against Carlton has been postponed because of the weather. Also off is this afternoon's Poloc Academy Sunday League match away at Bothwell Castle Policies against Uddingston.

 

Representative selection [posted 11/08/18]

Craig Young has again been selected in the Western Warriors squad for its Tilney Group Pro50 match against Caledonian Highlanders at Forthill tomorrow. 

 

Shawholm win big, and Poloc score big,.....but lose [posted 11/08/18] 

WDCU_logo The 'Loc managed to rack up over 260 runs today down at New Cambusdoon, however having conceded 305 [for 4] beforehand they went down to defeat against Ayr, their hosts winning by 43 runs.  Coenie top-scored with 80, whilst all the other nine batters - aside Ghaff - who faced a ball got to at least 20.  The first innings had seen two home centurions, and no fewer than 40 boundaries scored - ouch!  The scorecard's online, as are match highlights and updated stat's.

 

There was better news at Shawholm however where the club's emponymous hosts comfrtably defended 195 against Cambusdoon, bowling out the visitors from Alloway before drinks in their innings, for 93.  Crazy Horse took a "4-for", and Rob' and Irfan grabed a brace each.  Earlier, as the near 200 total was posted, Hunnain top-scored with 57, with Noaman chipping in with a cameo 28.  We've got the scorecard online, and updated stat's, as well as match photo's in the Gallery, courtesy of Ali Maddock.

 

Win for the Under 14s [posted 10/08/18] 

WDJCU_logo The Under 14s saw off the challenge of visitors Uddingston this evening in a rescheduled league match.  Batting first the youngsters eventually posted a whopping 167 for 4, this after losing two early wickets.  There were contributions pretty much throughout the middle and lower orders, with retirements and not outs for Samee (27*), Elliot 26*, Abdullah 25* and Nabeel 21*, and 20 for Moiz. 

In the defence of their total the 'Loc bowlers bowled straight enough to clean bowl six of the Uddy line-up, with the other wicket to fall coming courtesy of a good safe pouch in the deep by Nabeel.  Uddingston would eventually be bowled out for 76 in the eighteenth over, their skipper Willmott being unable to bat after leaving the game with suspected broken finger - our best wishes go to him.  We've got the scorecard from tonight's match online, alongwith updated stat's.
