Cricket: Dumfries train-up for the summer

10 03 2010

Dumfries Cricket Club resume their senior training sessions at Nunholm this weekend. The session for senior players, from all the club’s teams, runs from 11am to 1pm this Saturday morning, the 13th March, and on subsequent Saturdays.

The club’s first XI, APD Dumfries, play in the Scottish National League Division 2. The second XI, JMS Nunholm, play in Western Union Division 2 and the youthful Sunday XI, Site Electrical Dumfries, have been promoted to the Strathclyde Sunday League Division 2.

The club welcomes new players, senior or junior, for the summer whether for one of the two midweek evening teams, friendly matches, or league cricket on a Saturday or Sunday. They can drop in at a training session at Nunholm or contact Trefor Williams on 01387 256455. More information about the club is available at http://www.dumfriescricketclub.co.uk.

The new 1st XI captain for 2010, Stuart Corbett-Byers commented “APD Dumfries had one of their best ever seasons last year. We just fell short in the very last weekend of the season and missed out in the promotion play-off match for National Division 1.”

“This year we need to retain that standard and learn from the few lost matches and opportunities of last season.”

APD Dumfries’s first league match takes place on the 1st of May away at Ferguslie.

To herald the new season the club’s Annual Awards Dinner takes place next Friday, the 19th March at the Casa Mia restaurant and at the Nunholm clubhouse from 6:30pm.
