Tim Hart writes, "The west regional qualifying section in the Cricket Scotland National Secondary Schools Cup got underway at Old Anniesland on Wednesday the 27th of April.  The tie saw the High School of Glasgow ("HSoG") host Eastwood High School ("EHS").  On an afternoon which featured sun, snow, hail and rain, EHS were restricted to 75 for 5 off their twenty overs before a quick-fire 33 from Sam Greene (West of Scotland CC) lead HSoG to victory."

 

Girls Regional Development Centre ("RDC") session [posted 24/04/16]

Tim Hart writes, "The Girls Regional Development Centre (West) concluded with a third, and final, winter session today with seven girls, from three different west region clubs, attending the session.  With a girls hardball event also running at Stirling County CC, having seven girls attend the session represented a great effort.  The skills on show during a couple of different fielding-based games, a modified indoor game and a modified version of continuous cricket were very impressive – and it is hoped that further Girls RDC sessions can be arranged for during the cricket season.  Finally, thanks must go to all the players, the parents and the coaches who have made the winter sessions possible."

 

West Development Manager update - addendum [posted 22/04/16]

Tim Hart writes, "I wanted to take the opportunity to highlight a few things just before the season starts!  Cricket Factory Schools Cup: the date of the west regional qualifier has had to change and will now take place on Monday 16 May 2016.  The competition is an S1 to S3 competition and is based around a modified (softball) version of the game.  It is eight-a-side and is perfect for schools with a limited number of players and players who do not have much experience of cricket.  If clubs, or any schools they are working with, wish more information about this competition please get in contact with me.  WRDC Under 14 Challenge Series 2016: an initial group of players have been contacted and asked to return their availability to me.  The last date for replying is today.  If clubs wish to know which of their players has been contacted, and whether or not they have replied, please let me know.  Girls Regional Development Centre ("RDC") session: the final girls RDC indoor session is on Sunday the 24th of April, from 11.30am to 1pm, at Hutchesons' Grammar School Sports Hall.  The session is designed for any girls who are under 16 and have experience of playing or training regularly – and anyone interested is welcome to turn up on the day."

You need JavaScript enabled to view it (07756-512694), GSCA Secretary, writes, "With a decent performance from the Scottish national side in India at the WT20 (one win and two narrow defeats), it's a fitting time to get the ball rolling on the new season at grass roots level and also hand some hard pressed staff a get out of jail card - at least for a few sunny afternoons!

"I have attached the entry form for this season's Glasgow Schools Cricket Association tournaments - both of which were won last session by Holyrood Secondary School.  I'd be especially grateful to know of your junior entry this season as soon as possible as I intend to post the junior league fixtures by the end of April - with senior details coming out a few weeks later."
