Primary cricket teams raring to go at Nunholm

Local primary schools have not quite been hearing the smack of leather on willow this summer – more the thump of plastic on plastic.

Along with a team from Galloway and another from Lockerbie, pupils from Collin, Duncow, Georgetown and Noblehill Primary Schools came to Nunholm for a series of Kwik cricket matches between ten teams.

For four Friday evenings in June the teams bowled fast, threw hard and hit big as five games took place simultaneously on the ground. In all there were over sixty young participants who enjoyed their time with bat and ball.

The Collin “A-Team” proved to be the champions – being undefeated in their 8 matches.

There was plenty of enthusiasm and no little skill on show and hopefully some of the primary pupils will have been enthused enough to return to Nunholm for some of the Dumfries Cricket Club weekly junior coaching sessions – which carry on through the summer holidays – on Mondays from 6.15-8pm.

Thanks go to the volunteers who umpired and organised the matches and the teachers and team managers for marshalling their sides.
