Shawholm ease to opening Western Cup win [posted 02/05/17]

Shawholm followed up Saturday's win on the opening day of the league season with a convincing win over BBC Scotland in the first group stage match in this season's Western Cup.  The side posted 178 for 1 batting first, after being inserted, Uzzair top-scoring with 98 not out, and CJ giving able assistance up-top, before eventually being dismissed for a nice 59 that included nine 4s.  Uzzair's knock, from just 67 deliveries, included thirteen 4s and two maximums.  In reply, the visitors struggled to really get going, and would eventually finish on 108 for 6, Hunnain taking 3 for 24, but his "3-for" being over-shadowed by a ridiculous one-handed slip catch from Ahmed-Raza!  The scorecard's online, as are updated averages and statistics, and the group stage league table.

Senior practice


Senior coaching and net practice takes place, at Shawholm, on Tuesday and Thursday evenings starting at 6pm, with structured practice commencing at 6.30pm sharp.  Sessions involve net practice whenever possible but, even if underfoot conditions are not conducive to having "nets", fielding and catching practice is undertaken.


The club has a large grass practice square with two mobile net cages as well as all-weather astro-turf net bays.


Indoor net sessions are also organised during the off-season.


Outdoor practice sessions start in April and run throughout the season - new members (of whatever standard) are always welcome.
