Junior Cricket Update, July 2020

Clydesdale Cricket Club is delighted to announce that, following postponement due to coronavirus, our youth coaching programmes are back!

As our activities resume, the safety of our coaches and players will be the main priority.  While things may look a little different, our aim will be to maximise participation and fun – and to enable as much activity as possible between now and the end of the 2020 season, in early September.

We will be running three programmes between Monday 27 July and Friday 11th September:

  • Youth Coaching
  • Youth Activity Camps
  • Matchplay

Following the recent relaxation of lockdown, the currently planned ‘matchplay’ opportunities are based around playing intra-club (internal) matches – and will only be open to members.  However, as guidelines evolve, it may be possible for us to accommodate some fixtures against local clubs - based on sportscotland, Cricket Scotland and WDJCU guidance.

The current plan is to run at least one of each of the following:

  • U11 intra-club (internal) match (softball)
  • U12 intra-club (internal) match (hardball)
  • U14 intra-club (internal) match (hardball)
  • U16 intra-club (internal) match (hardball)
  • U16 intra-club (internal) match (floodlit, softball)

There may also be the possibility for our older Juniors to be involved in some Senior intra-club matches.

The club will be continuing to offer a reduced membership fee for 2020 – but the club would be very appreciative if any members/parents still feel able to pay a full fee.

Membership application form is available here:

Finally, we look forward to welcoming you back to our youth coaching programmes.
