Hard day at the Office
It was a hard day at the office for our teams, 1s, 2s, women's, last weekend. Our report is HERE.

Women and Girls Cricket
The combined Dumfries/Galloway women's team played against West of Scotland at Nunholm on Sunday where an big opposition opening partnership, including a century, won the game for the visitors. However it was a great debut by junior Macey. Well bowled. Some match photos are HERE.

However since then, reluctantly, we have felt it was necessary to withdraw from the Women's Premier League for this season. The loss of some players this year and insufficient availability and players for the remaining scheduled matches meant that we felt we could not guarantee to fulfill the fixtures. However we are working to organise development games instead which will also suit those with less playing experience. More news here soon!

Overseas Cricket
Many congratulations to Jono Van Zyl who visited the club last season, and who played a few games for us, on his selection this week for South Africa U19s and for upcoming matches in Bangladesh.
