Individuals and teams of 5 people upwards are invited to join in. Amanda Creedon-Bass from the Sports Club said “The emphasis is on a fun few hours of activities which will give an opportunity to have a go at a variety of sports; netball, football, tennis, cricket, and hockey plus an obstacle course with prizes for the winning team and as importantly the best-dressed team. No experience is necessary, just bring your trainers and your friends.”

Sandra Proudfoot, Head of Delegation for the Special Olympics Team, said on behalf of Dumfries and Galloway Disability Sport that “it is great that the club are supporting us as a charity. We hope that the inspiration of the Rio Olympics and Team GB will inspire a few people to have a go and try some new activities. Appropriately the inspiration of the Paralympics for those we help will be starting in Rio the following Wednesday”.

Entries to the “Trainers On” event can be made by emailing dumfriessrc@gmail.com and sending in an entry fee of £30 per team, with proceeds destined for D&G Disability Sport.

One of the five winners was Dumfries Cricket Club and for their involvement in the Dumfries entry on social media Amanda Creedon-Bass and Brogan Dean were presented with a certificate on the outfield after the first innings along with the Cricket Factory equipment prize won for the Club. Amanda said “It was an enjoyable day. Cricket Scotland looked after us and it was a bonus to come back with coaching equipment for the Club to use in schools and at Nunholm”.

The competition was held to celebrate the ICC Best Overall Development Programme Award that Cricket Scotland received last month with Cricket Scotland deciding to reinvest the award into equipment for schools and clubs to win as part of this competition.

Cricket: Stafforce Dumfries in last over thriller

Bevo hit 98 in the Cup on Sunday

Bevo hit 98 in the Cup on Sunday

In the Western Premier League, Stafforce Dumfries were on the wrong end of a last over thriller at East Kilbride on Saturday.

Dumfries batted first and an eighty nine run third wicket partnership between Chris Bellwood, with 35, and Josh Geary ushered the side past the hundred. Then well into the last ten overs the Galloway Industrial Dumfries Man of the Match, Geary, was bowled by Coetzee for top score of 78, one of four wickets for the opening bowler. Davie Davidson provided a run a ball 24 not out to push Dumfries on to a final total of 191 for 8.

Dumfries were well placed when they had East Kilbride at 60 for 5 but aggressive batting by Lyons with 50, supported by Kampman with 30, brought the home side back into the game. Finally nine runs were needed off the last over with just one wicket left but two boundaries by Coetzee took his East Kilbride side to a one wicket win. For Dumfries, Geary took three wickets and Chris McCutcheon and Alan Davidson each took two.

Chamilla took 3 wkts for Nunholm

In the Western Premier Reserve League at home, Nunholm bowled out Torrance House for 123 with three wickets each to the John Walker & Sons Dumfries Man of the Match, Stuart Alexander, and to left armer Chamilla Nagodavatithna. After a good start, and despite the day’s top score of 36 by opener Adam Elliott, former Dumfries player Mahmood, with five wickets, helped the visitors to a 17 run win in another close finish.

On Sunday, in the 40 over Western Union Cup, Dumfries set a big total of 262 for 4 for Glasgow Accies at Nunholm Road. Scott Beveridge hit 98 and Josh Geary scored 73 not out, with 51 from Captain Robert McBride. In reply Accies reached 158 all out. Gurupal Singh claimed five wickets and Connor Jones took three in a 104 run Dumfries win which earned a place in the quarter finals. Beveridge took the GM Thomson & Co. Man of the Match award for his hard-hitting innings.

Junior Cricket: Dumfries’s Chris McBride was with Durham U17s for their matches against Lancashire, Cheshire and Yorkshire during the week in the ECB County Cup.

Dumfries Juniors travelled to sunny Gatehouse for their first match of the season with a team of experienced youngsters and inexperienced older ones. The combination proved too strong for Galloway’s youngsters. Accurate bowling and some power-hitting were the difference.

Junior cricket coaching, for boy and girls of P4-S1 ages, takes place on Mondays at 6:15-8pm at Dumfries Sports Club, Nunholm Road, with new starters welcome to attend a free taster session.

Cricket: Stafforce Dumfries open season with a win

12 04 2016

The new cricket season started for Dumfries Cricket Club on Saturday, at home at Nunholm Road, with the first friendly fixture of 2016 for both Stafforce Dumfries and visitors Penrith.

20160409 567 Penrith - C Bellwood x800

Chris top scored with 72 not out for Stafforce Dumfries

Penrith batted first and found the Dumfries bowlers immediately on target with bowlers claiming wickets in their opening overs. Josh Geary took an early wicket in the very first over and then another in his second.

The first change bowlers also did the same with first over wickets for Pat Druce and Alan Davidson. Scott Beveridge and Connor Jones also claimed a wicket each to leave Penrith with wickets down.

However McLean and Hall responded by boosting the score and some late innings hitting by Hay took the final total up to 150 in the 40 overs. Wickets were shared amongst the bowlers with Alan Davidson and Josh Geary inflicting the most damage.

Davidsons, Alan and Davie, got into double figures early in the Dumfries innings but from 87 for 5 it required the Barbours Man of the Match Chris Bellwood to marshall the response with a fine innings of 72 not out. He and Niall Alexander shared a 65 run sixth wicket partnership to see the Nunholm side home. Hindmarsh claimed two of the wickets for Penrith in what was a good pre-league warm-up match for both sides.

The game’s RF Angus champagne moment was a nonchalant caught and bowled by Niall Alexander off a fiercely struck drive. This Saturday Dumfries play Ferguslie, home at Nunholm Road, in another pre-league friendly.

Start of Junior Cricket: With the Club’s summer coaching programme in schools having started this week, the weekly outdoor junior coaching sessions start on Monday (18th Apr, 6:15-8pm) at Dumfries Sports Club, Nunholm Road.

Power switch off – Mon lunchtime

27 11 2015

The club are currently installing Solar Panels, to complete these works we need to switch all power off to allow this to happen.

Therefore we are advising you that on Monday 30th between 11am and 2pm there will be no power in the Sports Club. This will obviously cause some disruption to the booking system, door entry, squash courts, the treadmills, the lights, the heating and the hot water.

Everything should be back to normal by 2pm if not sooner but this will mean that the squash courts will be slightly cooler due to the lack of heat for this period. The club apologies for the inconvenience.

The Management Committee
