As a new season looms, we also introduce a second indoor session each week from Tuesday the 25th of February.  The Tuesday evening sessions - running between 8.30pm and 10pm every week until the 7th of April - particularly provide a chance for any players who can't manage along on Sunday afternoons to get some pre-season practice in.

Under 11s back in "Kwik Cricket" action [posted 09/02/20]


The club's youngest playing age-group, the Under 11s, were back in Sunday morning indoor cricket action today, with scheduled matches against Uddingston and Ferguslie in the second round of matches of the 2020 six-a-side Under 11 "Kwik Cricket" tournament.   Played as usual at Uddingston Grammar School, the 'Loc youngsters extended their winning run to four as they played and managed to win against Ferguslie.....twice! 


The double-header came about as a result of Uddingston's youngsters not managing to play.  Game one saw a narrow 6-run win, game two seeing a winning margin of 16 runs.  Along witgh the usual great fun and general #bluebatbedlam there was some pretty good bowling and fielding on display, all boding well.  Next up for the Under 11s and 12s is next Sunday's indoor practice between 2pm and 3pm at "Hutchie".
