Welcome to Poloc Cricket Club

 

Welcome!  Please enjoy this virtual look round our club - but, better still, why not come and see us?  Founded over 135 years ago, we're a family-centred club with our own ground in picturesque Pollok Park on Glasgow's southside, members coming from all backgrounds and from across the ethnic and cultural spectra, all taking an active part in club life.  As well as competitive and social cricket for juniors and adults, there are all-weather tennis courts, spectator seating and well-appointed clubhouse.

Cup draws, and Evening and Sunday League fixtures, 2017 [posted 03/02/17]

The Western Union completed the issuing of league fixtures and cup draws today when it released the draws for the Rowan Cup, McCulloch Cup (the West League Cup reverting to its original name), the Western Union Cup, the Western Cup and the Greenwood Trophy, as well as the fixtures for the Evening and Sunday Leagues.  We've got the cup draws online here, with the fixtures appearing on the respective team pages.

 

Playing conditions, 2017 [posted 02/02/17]

The Western Union has released the playing conditions for senior Saturday League cricket for season 2017.  These can be read in full online, here.  In its accompanying email, the Western Union highlighted the main changes as being: 

 

  • Overs now restricted to a maximum of 10 per bowler.  This was the very clear view of the overwhelming majority of clubs who took the trouble to respond to the questionnaire last autumn.
  • Restriction of aggregate 15 overs from overseas players still remains.  Again this reflects the view of a clear majority of clubs.
  • Fielding restrictions now aligned to that of the ODI regulations by including a 11 to 40 over restriction.  In practice this is relatively minor.
  • Wide wording completely rewritten to make this clearer.  The CMC were of the view that inconsistent interpretation was as much an issue as the rule itself here, and the aim is to assist players and umpires as much as possible in understanding it.

New gate [posted 14/12/16]

The club is delighted to unveil its new gate at Shawholm.  For many years access to the car park has been unrestricted, with this being - at times - frustrating to members.  However thanks to the team of talented craftsmen at Pollok Park, we are pleased to say that we have a new gate,.....and what a gate!  Beuatifully crafted in metalwork, the gate has the club's name on it as well as bat, stumps and balls!  Paul Brannan's team has done a brilliant job, and big "Thank you" is owed to them.  The gate - pictured below - will be open during practice and match times, with it being locked at certain other times.  We think it adds something of lasting value to the policies, as well as being of practical help to members.
