Club and coach development workshops [posted 04/02/16]

Tim Hart writes, "Sunday the 31st of January and Monday the 1st of February saw two very different workshops take place.  Sunday, at Hutchesons' Grammar School, saw the Regional Development Centre (West) deliver a 'Coach support' workshop which focussed on the topic of batting versus spin."

The venue for Monday was Hillhead Cricket Club, where Svend Elkjaer of Sports Marketing Network delivered a really exciting and thought-provoking 'Making it happen at your cricket club' workshop – with the clubs who attended now being eligible to apply to become part of the Cricket Scotland 'Thriving clubs' programme for 2016.  Thanks to the fifteen different people, from ten different clubs, who attended the workshops over the two days."

MB Stanger Trophy winner [posted 12/01/16]


Cameron Russell of Glasgow Accies CC was presented with the MB Stanger Trophy last weekend by its eponymous donor.  The award reflects Cameron's contribution over the last twelve months in and around at the Glasgow west end club.  The award presentation took place at a quiz night at New Anniesland, and in presenting the award to Cameron, Mike noted, "You will appreciate that there are many ways for senior and juunior members to make a positive and useful contribution to their club, quite apart from whatever achievements arise on the field of play.  Unfortunately, it is also true to say that all too many players at any club seem oblivious of what seems to me to be an obligation to contribute voluntarily in this way.  Cameron Russell was last season's Under 18 Glasgow Accies Captain having also stood in as the 2014 Captain. He has played for the club's 1st XI since he was fourteen, the second youngest only to Dougie Lockhart.

"Last year, he took his ICC Intro coaching course - basically because he was too young to take the UKCC 2.  Now at St. Andrews University, I understand that Cammy has already been scouted for the Uni’ squad for the coming season.  According to Colin Dawson, Cammy did all the organising of the Under 18 team over the past two seasons.  Last year he was awarded The Dobbin Trophy, recognising the junior member who contributed most to the club either on or off-field.  This year, on behalf of the Western District Junior Cricket Union, it is my pleasure to make a very similar gesture with the MB Stanger Trophy."  Congratulations to Cameron on his award.
