Cricket: Dumfries prepare for Scottish Cup

3 04 2012

Dumfries Cricket Club have resumed their evening training sessions with senior training taking place at Dumfries Sports Club, Nunholm from 6 to 8 on Tuesdays and on Fridays. New players are very welcome for the season ahead and can contact Trefor Williams on 01387 256455, or email, or introduce yourself at a club training session.

That season is fast approaching with the first match a week on Saturday, the 14th April, with a friendly at Nunholm against Ferguslie. The following Saturday sees the first competitive fixture, on the 21st, with a Scottish Cup group match at home when the firsts, APD Dumfries, play Weirs. The seconds, CWE Nunholm, then start their Western Cup competition with a match at Hillhead the following Saturday. See for more details.

Meanwhile Dumfries’s Tom McBride has been playing and training in South Africa on a pre-season tour with Scotland U19s. After a shoulder injury sustained in the first game he returned for the penultimate two games and was able to contribute with a run a ball 34 and then 44 for the side to remain unbeaten with one match to play.
