Culture eats strategy

Adapting the famous Peter Drucker quote to reflect the sport we love so it’s tea not breakfast that culture consumes.

Accies' culture is to share the burden of failure when it inevitably comes.

It is also to celebrate everyone’s effort, everyone’s successes because they belong to us all. 

This weekend our 1st XI got off the mark by dismissing a stacked Irvine side for 107 with sensational catches contributing to a 5 wicket haul from Dhruv. Then recovering from 2-3 to win by six wickets thanks to skipper Dave and newlywed Nathan.

Accies will look to win again next week at Langside.

Our 2nd XI dug deep to win and maintain their 100% record with a vital 7th wicket partnership from Ian and Ed on the way to 156 before bowling Galloway 2s out for 107 on back of great bowling from Sushant and fielding from Ramsay. A debut wicket for young Jatin too. 

Our MW side lost away by 8 wickets at Whitehaugh despite a brilliant captain's knock from Aaron supported by Adil.

Meanwhile, our youth sides continue to produce brilliance.

The U16s are dominating their their league and remain unbeaten. 

The U14s lost in Scottish cup by just two runs in a thriller as two late wickets ended the chase, but responded with a large win at Stirling the next day.

The U13s went the distance in the ECB U13 cup making it to finals day beating Gordonian’s in the semi on back of many wonderful perfomances however lost to worthy winners Grange in the final

Then on Sunday we had large numbers at our All Stars sessions.

The Accies culture is strong. 

Now for some Tea.
