Junior cricket restructured [posted 13/01/18]


The WDJCU Committee has circulated details of the new junior league structure for 2018.  2018 will see Under 11 cricket played with a softer ball, in two formats.  A new Under 12 hardball league has been introduced.  The Under 13 and Under 18 leagues have both been disbanded, with the Under 14 and Under 16 leagues the remaining main leagues.  Only the Under 16 League is eleven-a-side, with nine-a-side being the format for the Under 14 League, and the Under 11 and Under 12 leagues both being eight-a-side.  A summary of the changes is online.


Saturday league fixtures, 2018 [posted 06/01/18] 

The WDCU has published the Saturday league fixtures for season 2018.  These see the 'Loc start the season with home and away matches against north side rivals West of Scotland.  The Poloc side will be over at Hamilton Crescent, the Shawholm side entertaining Partick at Shawholm.  You can see the 'Loc's two side's fixture lists online (here and here), and the full fixture lists on the WDCU's website


Saturday league structure, 2018 [posted 31/12/17]

The WDCU Competition Management Committee published the league structure for 2018 yesterday.  The structure is much-changed from that in force in 2017, with only one Reserve division now in existence, the Premier Division Reserve.  NVT Shawholm will play in this division, and NVT Poloc will compete in the Premier Division.  Aside the ten teams playing in the Pemier Division Reserve, the other 2nd XIs of clubs have been "slotted in" to a singular pyramid league structure.  To accommodate promotion and relegation to/from the Premier Division Reserve, and promotion and relegation more generally in the larger pyramid, new promotion and relegation rules have been introduced, in the main - but not exclusively - to address the now more complicated issue of avoiding two or more XIs from the same club being in the same division, and only 1st XIs progressing in to the top two divisions.  More information on the changes can be found online.
