This Saturday APD Dumfries take a break from the Scottish Championship as all National league clubs take part in the new Scotland wide Murgitroyd Twenty/20 Festival. The new format involves nine regional groups in an afternoon of T20 matches. APD Dumfries face a tough task against two Premiership sides at Ayr with Greenock as the third team.
Meanwhile, after both Dumfries 1st XI and 2nd XI away matches against West Lothian and Moorcroft were washed out last weekend, the seconds, Site Electrical Nunholm, hope for a better fate with a home match against Titwood in the West SNCL Reserve League. The West Premiership match between Hillhead and Galloway which was to be hosted at Nunholm was also a victim of the weather.
The Sunday XI, Brammer Dumfries, have a home match against Hillhead in the West Sunday League. Dumfries’s Niall Alexander will not be available for the side with his selection for the Scotland U15 match that day against Cumbria in the ECB Championship.
The club at Nunholm welcomes new players; senior, junior, women and girls. Senior training takes place on Tuesdays and Fridays and junior and women/girls coaching is on Monday evenings. For details contact Trefor Williams on 01387 256455 or see www.dumfriescricketclub.co.uk.
