MONDAY NIGHT IS JUNIOR NIGHT: The cricket section’s popular junior coaching sessions are starting again on Monday the 20th April at 6:15 pm (to 8pm) and on subsequent Mondays throughout the season.

These evening sessions are open to Sports Club members and non-members, and aimed at boys and girls aged from 8 to 14. Basic skills coaching will be provided for new starters whilst more experienced players will be given key technical skills training. However the emphasis is on fun and participation. For those older, cricket training starts earlier at 4:15pm (to 6pm).

Come along to Nunholm and ask, or for further details contact Trefor Williams on 01387 256455 or visit

These Monday sessions lead on to taking part in Kwik cricket matches, and games at under 11 and under 13 age groups.

The club are an accredited Dumfries and Galloway Sports Club and are a “TopClub” within the Cricket Scotland Development Programme which assesses the junior activities at the club.

There are a number of qualified coaches available including several ECB Level 1 coaches plus four coaches who are in the process of reaching ECB/UKCC Level 2 status. The latter has been possible thanks to help from the club’s Youth Sponsors, Annandale Insurance and Coatbridge Cold Store Construction, and support from the Nithsdale Sports Council and D&G Council’s Leisure and Sports Department.
