Junior Cup updates - U13's win against Grange

Posted on Friday 7th June 2019 by Colin Dawson

The U13's continued their success last night in Edinburgh in the ECB Vitality Cup by beating Grange by 33 runs.

The team now qualifies for Semi-Finals and, hopefully, Final Day at Goldenacre on Sunday, 16th June. All supporters will be welcome.  Final details will be posted here when advised to us by Cricket Scotland.

Well done lads and good luck.

This may impact on our usual Sunday junior training session which will also be updated here.

The U15 ECB Cup match against Carlton was again thwarted by weather and is now due to be played at New Anniesland this Sunday morning  with a 10am start - again weather permitting.

Summer coaching courses 2019

Posted on Monday 3rd June 2019 by Fraser Murray

The Glasgow Academy is running cricket coaching courses during the second week of the Easter holidays for any young and enthusiastic cricketer. The courses will be organised and delivered by Mr Vedam Hariharan who is the Cricket Professional with The Academy during the summer, and a leading overseas coach in Australian and Indian Cricket Centres of Excellence.

The courses will take place at The Glasgow Academy. Several facilities will be used to provide the best possible environment for learning and developing cricket skills and knowledge. This will include the sports hall, which now offers four high-quality net areas and the option of splitting into three large open working areas, a smaller gym which provides an ideal venue for more intense technical work in small groups and a large astro-turf area.

Much has happened before the monsoons arrived.

Congratulations to our U14's who repeated last Friday's league performance beating Ayr U14's again in the Scottish Cup on Tuesday. They now move on to the next round against West of Scotland being another home tie due to be played on Wednesday, 12 June … if the rains cease!

We are still waitng to arrange a suitable date for the U16 Scottish Cup tie against Clydesdale at Accies.

Unfortunately the rain put paid to last night's U13 ECB Vitality Cup against Grange in Edinburgh and this is now rescheduled for Thursday, 6 June at Raeburn Place, Edinburgh.

A reminder that the U15's play Carlton at Accies next Tuesday, 4 June in the U15 ECB Vitality Cup, again weather permitting.

Update on juniors

Posted on Sunday 19th May 2019 by Colin Dawson

There is a lot of talent in the junior ranks at the moment and also a load of new young players interested in joining the Club. Registrations to play senior cricket are also on the increase but there are still a few who should be but have not yet done so.

All league age groups are performing well to date and, for the first time since the 80's, teams have been entered in the U16 and U14 Scottish Cup competitions as well as U15 and U13 teams in the ECB Vitality Cups.

Highlights to date - the U13's recently won their first round ECB match at home against Callander [Grange away in round 2 on Thursday, 30 May] and the U15's won their first round match this morning against a strong Poloc side - it's Carlton in the next round at home on a date yet to be arranged.  The 14's beat Clydesdale II in the league at Titwood last Friday which greatly pleased both the team and the team manager.

It's busy times at the moment with the Scottish Cup matches yet to be arranged/played but confidence is high right now. More in due course.
