CRICKET SECTION AGM AND DINNER

Posted on Tuesday 17th August 2004 by Colin Dawson

Notices are currently being sent out to members of both senior and junior sections.

The Annual General Meeting will take place in the Clubhouse on Friday, 3rd September at 6.30pm. We are looking for a good attendance from all section members.

This will be followed at 8pm by the annual Cricket Section Dinner to which seniors, juniors and parents are all invited. This is becoming an increasingly popular event especially with the younger members but this year we would like to see a much greater attendance from the older players of the section. Please make an extra effort and enjoy the informal atmosphere of this end of season event.

Whilst on the subject of events the hamburger night planned for Saturday, 14th August seems more likely to happen on the evening of 28th August - at least that's what we've been told!!!

Weekend Report - 03/08/04

Posted on Tuesday 3rd August 2004 by Neil Dowers

Weekend Report 03/08/2004

Accies' weekend was largely a happy one, although at 6PM on Saturday it looked like being anything but, midway through the 1XI vs Kelburne game. A batting performance best described as dismal left the club with only 134-8 after 50 overs, the only decent performance in the top-order from Sid Hariharan, who scored 30 before being cruelly run out by a direct hit from the boundary. Suraj Survana, Andy Smith and Nige Campbell added some quick late runs to make Accies' total look at least respectable, scoring 18, 27* and 14* respectively. Accies came out to bowl and struggled to make any impact, as Kelburne reached 51-0 from 18.1 overs, despite Michael Hopkins bowling 7 overs for 8 runs. It has to be considered a bit of a collapse, then, from the ex-SNCL club to be at 53-5 8 overs later! Rohit Rane, Accies' new professional, got the breakthrough, and he and Vedam Hariharan never looked back, taking 5 wickets each as Kelburne were bowled out for only 77. In Hari's 11 overs, 5-20 was a spell of 6 overs, 6 maidens 4 wickets for no run! Well bowled, Sir!

On Sunday, the 2XI travelled the hour and a half to Dumfries to face Kingholm. On a stunning day, Kingholm soon regretted asking Anniesland to bat, with 244 being scored for the loss of only 3 wickets in 50 overs. Roddy Kelso scored his first ever hundred in senior cricket, facing just over half the innings' balls for his 103. Alan Meek smashed 75 from 48 balls, and Neil Dowers added 37*. Sadly, with such a mountain to climb, Kingholm gave up and ended up batting for the draw with 7 wickets down.

Monday night saw some high junior spirits dampened as the U17 cup team travelled to Titwood to take on the mighty Clydesdale. In their 18 overs, Accies made 104, both openers -- Dowers and Kelso, in high spirits from the previous day -- scoring brisk 0s, and Donald Abbot smashing 59! In an excellent position to win, the depleted Clydesdale XI needing 24 from the final 3 overs to win, the conditions took the game away from Accies. Poor visibility (??), rain falling in sheets (??) and a ball as easy to keep hold of as a bar of soap made both fielding and bowling extremely difficult as Clydesdale eased home with half an over to spare but the match had been "lost" well before that.
