Matt Coyle's maiden 100 

On the 3rd of May 2008, at Glenpark in Greenock, Matt Coyle scored his maiden 100 in senior cricket for the club.  Batting at six, and coming in with the score on 22 for 4, Matt hit seventeen 4s in a knock that dominated the Shawholm XI's innings of 185.  Matt's 102 was only one of two individual scores in double figures in a bizarre-looking scorecard, number ten batter Zaeem Mirza being the other player to get into double figures, with 14. Another feature of the 'Holmboys' innings was home bowler Phil McIntosh grabbing a "7-for".  The match ended in a draw, with the home side finishing 104 for 9, Matt having taken a "3-for" with the ball.  Matt's historic moment was captured on video by Aamir Kayani on his 'phone.

  


 

Frank Smith Trophy Final, 2004

 

Poloc Under 17s had secured their place in the 2004 Frank Smith Trophy win a convincing win at New Cambusdoon over Ayr in late July.  After restricting Ayr to 70 for 7 in their twenty overs, batting first, the Poloc youngsters romped to a nine-wicket win thanks to an unbeaten 48 from Madushan Jayaratne.  This after Madushan had taken 3 for 13 in his five overs in a man of the match performance. 

 

Waiting in the final - which didn't take place until September the 5th - were Clydesdale.  The Titwood side had recorded a seven-wicket win in the league encounter between the sides earlier in the season and went into the final as firm favourites. 

Their favourites tag was accentuated by the fact that, as in the semi-final, the Poloc side included three Under 12s. And the match followed its predicted path.  Batting first the home side posted 186 for 1, with Sher (77 not out) and Sinclair (65 not out) both scoring heavily.  In their reply Poloc would eventually finish 94 for 9, with only Madushan Jayaratne - with 57 - getting into double figures, Craig Young and Robin Morley finishing the not out batters as the completed scorecard showed Clydesdale had run out winners by 92 runs.

 


 

Hillhead Under 18 versus Poloc Under 18, 2002

 

Hughenden was the venue for the 2002 WDJCU Under 18 League match between Hillhead and Poloc. 

 

The Poloc side that day numbered only eight players, with youngsters as young as eight years old featuring. 

 

Some well-known faces were in the side however, including a sixteen-year old Matt Coyle who would go on to skipper the club's 1st XI.  Also featuring was eight year-old Craig Young, who was even given a couple of overs to bowl.  Other recognisable faces in Glasgow's west end that day were Faisan Alam, Sheldon Burrow, Keith Anderson and Saqib Awan.  And, of course, long-time Junior Convenor Stewart Shearer.
