Well, after an eventful start to the season, including all the good and bad things about the game of cricket in Scotland, normality prevailed and it rained for two weeks. Westquarter's league campaign so far has been shaky but promising, with contributions from all of our new recruits plus some excellent performances from the old guard.

The last indoor training session will be on Sunday 2nd April. Indoor training has proven popular, with a healthy turnout of both adults and juniors over the last few months. 

Now the time has come for us to learn the most important part of being a cricketer, taking on the elements. So outdoor training will begin on Tuesday 4th April at 6pm and will take place at this time every Tuesday and Thursday. The dates and times of junior practices will be decided soon and posted on the site.

Andy Abraham has politely offered to help devise a more structured and effective training schedule, so the more people who turn out the better.

Pre-Season Games

The teams for the pre-season games will be announced next Tuesday. There has been a lot of interest in these matches, so the teams have been arranged to ensure that everyone gets at least 2 games, with most people playing three or four.

Mid-Season Friendlies

A few Sunday friendlies have now been confirmed for during the season against Doune, West Lothian, Comrie, and two 20/20 games against Fauldhouse. We have also entered into the ESCA Plate Competition, which will also take place on Sundays.

Painting

Help is needed to complete the decorating work on the changing rooms. Some of us will be helping out on Saturday 1st April, if you can spare a couple of hours from 2pm onwards please some up and help since we would like to get this completed before the start of the season.

The club annual general meeting was held on the 20th March at Bailliefields. There was a good turnout with quite a few of our new recruits taking an interest in the running of the club.

The 2006 season will see us travel to Largo to take on their second string at one of the best pitches and most picturesque grounds in the league. 

There will be no local derby this season since ‘Stenny’ have decided to leave us alone and go to Division 3. However, there will be no shortage of rivalries, with the Fox brothers set to take on their former club Boroughmuir.

I can tell that most of you have spent the winter itching to pick up a bat or ball, and dreaming of that hundred you are going to score, or the last minute match winning hat-trick you are going to take next season……
