Pre-season win [posted 21/04/18]

In what looks like being the only pre-season match to beat the weather, a Poloc XI defeated Dumfries at Nunholm today - in the glorious sunshine - winning by 102 runs.  Batting first on a remarkably firm and dry surface, the side posted 256 for 3 in their 40 overs, with Rambo top-scoring with 62, one of three half centuries (pictured below).  There were also runs for Saif (47) who put on 88 with Amaan for the first wicket, and then for Pasty (60*) and Coenie (54*), on debut, who put on 72 in just 51 balls at the end of innings.  Then in the field, the slow bowlers did most of the damage, and work, returning a combined 4 for 59 in their 24 overs, Crazy Horse taking 2 for 17 in his eight overs, and Coenie and Jurie getting a wicket each.  The scorecard's online, as are a short match report, the first stat's of season 2018. And, match highlights can be watched online here.

Games cancelled [posted 19/04/18]

Two of this weekend's second round of pre-season matches have, unfortunately, been cancelled.  Saturday's home fixture between a Shawholm XI and a Nunholm XI is off as the Dumfries club were unable to raise a strong enough side, and Sunday's Eric Lane Memorial Trophy match at Bothwell Castle Policies is also off as, like at so many clubs, Uddingston's ground is just not ready after the very poor Spring. 

 

Weekend matches [posted 18/04/18]

This weekend sees three scheduled pre-season matches.  Dumfries host a Poloc XI at Nunholm on Saturday, with a Nunholm XI travelling north to take on a Shawholm XI.  Then on Sunday the annual Eric Lane Memorial Trophy match against Uddingston is scheduled, Bothwell Castle Policies the venue - by rotation - this season.  All matches, of course, are weather-dependent!  The team selections are online, with players' names being added as they confirm their availabilities.

 

Games cancelled [posted 13/04/18]

Unfortunately Sunday's pre-season game against Prestwick was called off early on Friday, the continuing poor weather resulting in season 2018's first casualty!  Then, on Friday evening, Saturday's trip to New Cambusdoon became victim number two, as this match, too, was beaten by the weather.

 

Weekend pre-season matches [posted 13/04/18]

Saturday and Sunday see - weather-permitting - the first two, of five, pre-season matches taking place.  First up is Saturday's trip to New Cambusdoon to take on an Ayr XI, before another trip to Ayrshire on Sunday, and a game against Prestwick at Henry Thow Oval.  Saturday's match has a 12 noon start and will be 40 overs-a-side, Sunday's match starts at 1pm.  The team selections are online, with players' names being added as they confirm their availabilities.
