Half past two on Sunday 13th January – playing officials to be elected and lots to talk about. Please make every effort to be there – and drag as many people as possible along with you!
All players are urged to help in the working parties scheduled for Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th September, from 9 am to 12 noon on both days. There is a lot to be done – all players should make every effort to be there to do their share of the work.
We will aim to update this note as required between now and tomorrow morning, putting latest entry at the top to save you scrolling through history.
Saturday 11.15 – Dave is optimistic. He is cutting the wicket right now. The outfield is soggy in parts but the worst has been spiked and everything is drying at an acceptable rate for tomorrow. We are almost bound to see a shower or two as the day goes on, but as long as we don’t get prolonged heavy rain, we should be in good shape for tomorrow.
If I can recall correctly what I’ve just been told – the Kemnay v Freuchie tie was shortened to 25 overs each, Freuchie scored 139 for 4 off their 25 overs while Kemnay were all out for 63 in 20 overs. I hope we will see a more detailed report from someone who was at Kemnay this afternoon.
Half past nine this Sunday – get up to the park and see the stars of the future in our Kwik Cricket Festival. Competing clubs are Freuchie, Falkland, Largo, Doo’cot, Dunfermline and Kinross. Keep your fingers crossed for a dry weekend!
That would be today. And yesterday. And Wednesday. And and and …
Saturday’s home game against SMRH is off. We wait to hear about the 2’s game at Boroughmuir, but conditions in Edinburgh as a whole are as bad as ours. Sunday’s Village Cup tie against Kintore is also off.
Another two, actually – water-logged pitches and no cricket at Freuchie or against Westquarter and Redding. Might be dry by next weekend ….
At least I think it is – I’m feeling my way into this.
Fixtures for this weekend are published on the website. To do that, I have had to assume that all those picked are available. Once we get sorted and have all our players registered as website members, players can (and should) submit their availability information ahead of selection committee meeting. They will receive an email to tell them who is selected.
I can’t register members – they must go to the website and go through the registration process. Players should do that immediately. Go to www.pitchero.com/clubs/freuchiecricketclub/
Website registrations are welcome from everyone but it’s VITAL that we get all players registered so that we can communicate with them directly – both sending and receiving.
This course is an expanded version of the course and will include the UKCC1 “How to Coach” principles as well as a good amount of practical content to enable the participant to deliver fun games and drills and teach basic cricket skills to children.
The course is aimed at those wishing to take a first step on the coaching ladder such as club members, young people aged 16+, parents, volunteers, teachers etc. It is a particularly important course as the UKCC1 course is no longer available and this is a very suitable interim replacement.
Please encourage as many people as possible to attend this course. It is very cheap at only £20 to cover the cost of the resources. Please feel free to pass this onto anyone you think might be interested.
The course will be run by Live Active Leisure Cricket in Partnership With the Gannochy Trust, Cricket Scotland and Active Schools.
9.30am to 4.30pm
