WDCU_logo

Toytown was the venue for the latest - and this season's first - Rebel Alliance versus Empire clash.  The competition was the West League Cup, all shiny and new with pink balls now mandatory.  And the pleasing news is that this latest skirmish resulted in a win for the 'Loc.  After winning the toss, the side posted 130 for 7 with Pasty top-scoring with a well-paced 46 not out, Scotty bunting 37 and Flanners chipping in with 18.

Then in the Dark Side reply Bredders' 4 for 12 was the pick of the bowling figures Clydesdale were bundled out for 92.  There is a short match report online, along with updated statistics and the scorecard.

Less than 24 hours since securing progress in the Under 13 ECB Cup at Hamilton Crescent, the Under 15s were in action in their version of the same competition, with West of Scotland again the opposition.  However this time the match was at Shawholm.  With both sides missing key players, there was opportunity for younger players to step up to the plate.  

And pleasingly it was the 15s who came through, chasing 86 for the win with eight wickets in hand.  There's a short match report online, along with updated statistics and the scorecard.

 

Scotland Under 19 selection [posted 13/05/15]

The Under 16B side kicked-off their participation in this year's league - a new age-group league introduced by the WDJCU this season - with a win down at the Henry Thow Oval against Prestwick.  Chasing 120 to win, the side reached their target with over four overs to spare, and by ten wickets, with Abdullah 61 not out and Uzzair unbeaten on 41.  The first innings had seen Amaan take a "3-for".  There's a short match report online, along with updated statistics and the scorecard.

 Back-to-back wins for the Shawholm XI [posted 09/05/15]

The Shawholm XI continued on their winning ways today with an eventual 89-run win over St. Michael's Kingholm XI at home.  Batting first, Stiffy's 63 was the foundation for a final total of 205 being posted, Irfan chipping in with 40, and Mushy a cameo 21 in an important 62-run partnership with Elliott (pictured left).   Then in the Kingholm XI reply "3-fors" for Aliyan and Mushy were the biggest wicket hauls as the visitors were dismissed for 116 in the 32nd over.

 

There is a short match report online, along with updated statistics and the scorecard, and some photo's from the match in the Gallery, here.

 

Cancellation [posted 09/05/15]

Today's match at Kingholm between the 'Loc and St. Michael's was a victim of the heavy overnight rain that affected - in particular - the south-west of the country.  An early call from St. Michael's this morning confirmed that  - as this video shows - the ground had been left unplayable.

Defeat on the north-side [posted 08/05/15] 

After the Irvine|Kilmarnock combined team provisionally their Under 11 match with the club on Wednesday evening, the entirety of junior attention tonight was on the 15s' trip to Hamilton Crescent.  Unfortunately the side were blinded by the spotlight and slumped to a convincing 40-run loss.  There's a short match report online, along with updated statistics and the scorecard.

Under 13s get their season off to a winning start [posted 04/05/15] 

The Under 13s were in League Cup action this evening, entertaining Ayr.  After Ayr had recovered from 14 for 4 to post a more-than-competitive 100 for 9, the 13s then completed a nail-biting run-chase, Moiz cutting the penultimate delivery of the match for the needed 2 runs through point.  There is a short match report online, along with updated statistics and the match scorecard.

 

Win for the 'Loc to complete Saturday double [posted 02/05/15] 

WDCU_logo

With the Shawholm XI having already secured their win over at Albert Park in the "mirror" fixture, the 'Loc made it a double-win-Saturday by completing a five-wicket win over Weirs at Shawholm.  Chasing 189 to win, 95 from Chris' was the foundation of a good run-chase that saw the win secured with just under twenty overs to spare.  In the first innings, Ihty had grabbed a "4-for", and Niel made 44 to see him up-and-running too. 

There is a short match report online, along with updated statistics and the scorecard.

 

Shawholm start with a win [posted 02/05/15] 

WDCU_logo

The Shawholm XI started a new league season today with a short trip to Albert Park to take on their Weirs counterparts.  After losing the toss, Abhi' found his side in the field.  A good start with the ball, on a tricky wicket, saw the the home side collapse to 19 for 5 before recovering to post 93.  Aliyan was the pick of the bowlers with figures of 7-4-6-3.  The run-chase proved fairly straight-forward with the winning post passed in the sixteenth over, Irfan top-scoring with 37. 

There is a short match report online, along with updated statistics and the scorecard.

Final pre-season game [posted 26/04/15]

Today saw the club's final pre-season match played, an away day trip over the river to Hamilton Crescent and a 40 overs-a-side match with a West of Scotland XI.  The match provided an opportunity for some of the players who missed out yesterday after the Bothwell XI called off the game at Shawholm, in some instances their first run outs of season 2015.  The match ended in defeat by eight wickets, with the hosts chasing 152 inside 33 overs.  A brief match report's online, as are updated statistics and the scorecard.

Another decent run out [posted 25/04/15]

After last Saturday's pre-season match down at Prestwick - blessed by cracking weather - it was an altogether chillier day that saw a Poloc XI make the short trip along the M8 to Uddingston for the annual Eric Lane Memorial Trophy match.  Another side containing younger and more inexperienced players was selected, and so an eventual defeat by 40 runs against a Premier Division side full of experience - like seven days previously - was a result that contained a number of positives.  In the home side's innings there were decent opening spells from Ihty and Aliyan, before Abhi' bowled ten overs straight through, and Chris' ("3-for") and Pasty ("4-for") cashed in on the wickets front.  In the reply Ihty's unbeaten 38 and Chris's cameo 29 were the main contributions.  A brief match report's online, as are updated statistics and the scorecard

 

Match cancelled [posted 24/04/15]

Season gets underway [posted 18/04/15]

Season 2015's officially underway, with today's sun-kissed pre-season friendly taking place down in Prestwick at the eponymous Ayrshire club's Henry Thow Oval.  The Poloc XI featured five juniors, in what turned out to be a competitive fixture against a strong home side.  Batting first after being inserted, the Poloc XI posted 220 for 8 in their 50 overs, a total that the home side passed with just under five overs in hand.  Top-scorer for the Poloc XI was Owais Shah, with 63, whilst home side skipper Rafiq bludgeoned an unbeaten 83 to see his side home.  Of the six Prestwick wickets to fall four were captured on debut by Azeem Akbar.  A brief match report's online, as are statistics and the scorecard.

After the short break for the Easter school holiday, junior training and coaching resumes next week.  We'll be carrying out our annual registration process next week too.  First up, and back outdoors after a long winter indoors, are the Under 11 group, who'll resume their traditional Monday evening slot between 6pm and 7.30pm.  Then on Wednesday the Under 13 and Under 15 groups will train - again at their time - between 6.30pm and 8pm.

As next week's sessions are the first of a new outdoor season, players and parents are reminded that their 2015 membership fees/subscriptions are now due.  A junior fee is just £75, with brothers or sisters paying just £35.  Also required at this time of the year are updated registration forms.  Again players and parents are reminded of this, and are asked to download a registration form and complete this, and bring it next week along with their 2015 membership subscriptions.  Registration forms can be found online here, or by clicking on the .pdf download link button above, left.

Outdoor training [posted 08/04/15]

The first senior outdoor training session will be this coming Tuesday.  From 6.30pm we'll be attending to some pre-season admin', including collecting player subscriptions and updating registration photo's and membership details, before - weather-permitting - doing some outdoor training for the first time this season.  After six months indoors, it's always entertaining - as well as a bit of a shock to the system - when we get restarted outdoors!  Senior players are all invited to come along on Tuesday, on time to start at 6.30pm, and with their subscriptions.  Remember you can also pay your subscriptions online here, using your debit or credit card, and remember too that until a player pays their subscription they can't be selected to play in a match. 

 

Pre-season friendly [posted 08/04/15]

Another pre-season friendly has been agreed.  Saturday the 18th will see a Poloc XI travel to the Henry Thow Oval to take on Prestwick.  With a 12 noon start, the match will be 50 overs-a-side and see thirteen players participate.

Vandalism [posted 25/02/15]

It was disappointing to discover, this morning, that the clubhouse has been vandalised.  Three of the front windows (see below) have been broken, with glass debris littering the spectator seating area.  Fortunately it appears that it was "just" an act of vandalism, and not a break-in, or attempted break-in, and in each instance only the outer of the two panes in the double-glazed unit was broken meaning that the clubhouse itself remains wind and water-tight.  Thanks to Russell Lauder and Kenneth Robertson for their work today in dealing with the matter, for liasing with the Police, and beginning the process of organising repair work.

Quiz Night, Saturday the 24th of January [posted 04/01/15]

We're kick-starting 2015 with a Quiz Night, and want to encourage as many people as possible to come along.  The date's Saturday the 24th of January, and the start time's 7.30pm.  There'll be food (all halal) served, a raffle, and the quiz qill run until around 11.30pm.  Teams of five are needed, with tickets priced at £10 a person (or - obviously - £50 per team).  This includes the cost of the food.  We're looking for up to twenty teams which'd be 100 people.  The quiz is a great opportunity to bring friends and family along to the club, for a fun and relaxed event.  And, twenty teams is actually only twenty members bringing four friends each - how hard's that!  Please let Emily Coyle, Kenneth Robertson, Keith Sheridan or Keith Young know ASAP if you're coming along, and if there are any dietary requirements for your team.
