The club's sides play under the name, NVT Poloc and NVT Shawholm, NVT Group being the club's main sponsor - more about it and the club's other funders and supporters can be found in the Sponsors and partners section.  NVT Poloc plays in the Cricket Scotland League administered by the Western District Cricket Union ("WDCU") and NVT Shawholm plays in that league's reserve division.  In addition, Poloc Panthers and an Academy XI play in both the WDCU Sunday and Evening Leagues, and no fewer than five junior sides play at five age-group levels in the West District Junior Cricket Union leagues and cups, as well as in national cup competitions.

Start of twice-weekly indoor practice [posted 25/02/17]

Tuesday the 28th of February sees the start of twice-weekly indoor practice.  Junior and Academy practice has been ongoing throughout the winter months, and Tuesday night - 8pm to 10pm at Hutchesons' Grammar School Sports Hall - sees the start of open, senior practice.  Players are asked to get to "Hutchie" before 8pm to allow for a prompt start at 8pm.  The cost of sessions is £5 per person to cover the cost of hall hire.  We look forward to seeing a good number on Tuesday.

Cup draws, and Evening and Sunday League fixtures, 2017 [posted 03/02/17]

The Western Union completed the issuing of league fixtures and cup draws today when it released the draws for the Rowan Cup, McCulloch Cup (the West League Cup reverting to its original name), the Western Union Cup, the Western Cup and the Greenwood Trophy, as well as the fixtures for the Evening and Sunday Leagues.  We've got the cup draws online here, with the fixtures appearing on the respective team pages.

 

Playing conditions, 2017 [posted 02/02/17]

The Western Union has released the playing conditions for senior Saturday League cricket for season 2017.  These can be read in full online, here.  In its accompanying email, the Western Union highlighted the main changes as being: 

 

  • Overs now restricted to a maximum of 10 per bowler.  This was the very clear view of the overwhelming majority of clubs who took the trouble to respond to the questionnaire last autumn.
  • Restriction of aggregate 15 overs from overseas players still remains.  Again this reflects the view of a clear majority of clubs.
  • Fielding restrictions now aligned to that of the ODI regulations by including a 11 to 40 over restriction.  In practice this is relatively minor.
  • Wide wording completely rewritten to make this clearer.  The CMC were of the view that inconsistent interpretation was as much an issue as the rule itself here, and the aim is to assist players and umpires as much as possible in understanding it.
