  • Under 11 League Cup final (11th September 2019)

    Glasgow Accies CC win the Under 11 League Cup.  Glasgow Accies CC have won the 2019 WDJCU Under 11 League Cup, following their victory over Hillhead CC at “Titwood” (Clydesdale CC), on Wednesday the 11th of September.

    Glasgow Accies CC won the toss and elected to bowl first, on a chilly evening.  A tight all-round bowling performance was led by Zain Bhatti (2 for 2) and limited the Hillhead CC batters to few scoring opportunities.  This was reflected in the final score of 41/6 off the 16 overs.  In reply, despite Jasper Gilani taking two wickets (2 for 8) and throwing himself about with a very committed performance in the field, all four Glasgow Accies CC batting pairs batted positively and contributed to the team score.  Abhi Verma scored 18* and Bhatti added 15* as Glasgow Accies CC scored 98 for 6.  This left the final result as Hillhead CC, 65, lost to Glasgow Accies CC, 122, by 57 runs.

    Congratulations to Glasgow Accies CC on their victory – and thanks to the groundstaff and all the coaches, officials and parents who were there to support the final match of the 2019 outdoor season.

  • Under 14 League Cup final (9th September 2019)

    Clydesdale win the Under 14 League Cup.  “Titwood” (Clydesdale CC) was the host venue for the all-Clydesdale Under 14 League Cup final.  Batting first, Clydesdale CC I scored 99 for 6 from their their overs, in a reduced overs match – with Bahadar Esakhiel top-scoring with 21* (retired), Owen Gould contributing 17 and Sonny Cunningham 15* (retired).  The Clydesdale CC II chase was built around 25 from Ben Willmott and 18* from Abhi Reddy,  However, the five different wicket takers were backed up by a couple of well-executed run outs, as Clydesdale CC II finished agonisingly short.  Clydesdale CC I the winners, by just 3 runs!

    Thanks to the umpires and to the groundsman but most importantly to the players for putting on a great contest in front of an impressive number of spectators, for a slightly damp evening in early September!
