WDJCU Fixtures, Playing Formats and Regulations for Season 2022
Firstly, please accept my apologies for the delay in submitting the fixtures. There were two late entries and after both there was a requirement to rework the fixtures.
Please find attached the final fixtures for Season 2022, a proposal for the ADG Festival on which we request feedback, WDCU junior playing formats and league rules overview and WDJCU league and cup rules and regulations for 2022.
There was no clear guidance from clubs on the issue of age cut-off for the U16’s. It was split 50/50 at the forum and similarly the responses to the age group requirements. It was therefore decided that all age groups would remain with a cut-off of 31 August 2021 and the dispensation would be utilised to assist clubs that may have difficulty in raising a team to compete at the U16 age group. Obviously, dispensation remains in place for all age groups and clubs are requested to submit dispensation forms asap. Forms are attached.
Only the WDJCU-league-and-cup-rules-and-regulations-2022 VI remains to be updated. Meeting with CS on use of CS live is scheduled for Friday 18th March. Point 12 will be revised and a final rules and regulation document will be issued.
It is very pleasing to see the number of teams participating in the age groups and the WDJCU committee wish all clubs, coaches, volunteers, parents and players the best for the coming season.
Good luck to all clubs and we are here at your disposal if you have any issues.
Stay safe.

WDJCU Chairman update

It has been a tough period of inactivity for clubs and the kids. The WDJCU has put together a temporary structure for Clubs to follow if they are in a position to offer junior cricket. We must stress that the proposal is optional for all and clubs should continue to follow the current government guidance. As things stand an update is due from CS on 13th July. If conditions continue to improve then there may be the possibility of some form of cricket from 1st August. Clubs are asked to plan if they wish to offer cricket to their juniors from 1st August.

Stay safe.

Clydesdale CC win WDJCU Under 15 Super 8s, 2019

Clydesdale CC have won the WDJCU Under 15 Super 8s, 2019.

The group stages, on Saturday the 28th of December, saw Clydesdale CC win Group A and Glasgow Accies CC win Group B – with Ferguslie CC having the best net run rate (with an unusual statistical oddity being that it was 0.00!) of the runners-up and also progressing to the Final Group.  During the Group Stage there were significant contributions to their team’s effort from: Clydesdale CC’s Sonny Cunningham (26* retired), Bahadar Esakhiel (25* retired), Ibrahim Faisal (25* retired), Robin Ferguson (25* retired – twice), Owen Gould (32), Andrew Harden (30*, retired), Nikhil Koteeswaran (27*, 2 for 6 and 26* retired) and Shahan Raja (2 for 3), Clydesdale CC team II’s Maryam Faisal (28) and Ben Willmott (25* retired), East Renfrewshire CC’s Ahmad Gondal (24*) and Zayd Bin Tariq (2 for 6), Ferguslie CC’s Uzair Ahmad (25* retired & 26* retired) and Craig Glassford (26* retired & 25* retired), Glasgow Accies CC’s Ritvik Maheshwari (26* retired), Rory Paterson (25* retired) and Zain Shaikh (27* retired & 25* retired) and Kilmarnock CC’s Ruari Mavin (29*).  Added to all that, Under 12 Glasgow Accies CC player Shaan Suvarna also bowled a wicket maiden!

The final group took place in the afternoon on Monday the 30th of December.  Clydesdale CC batted first versus Glasgow Accies CC and posted a big total of 136 for 4 – Esakhiel, Gould and Harden all retired (26*, 25* and 25* respectively), with Nasratullah Safi taking 2 for 23 for Accies.  In reply, Clydesdale’s spinners Cunningham and Raja (2 for 11 and 2 for 10) ensured their team completed the win.  With their group stage match having been decided by the final delivery, it was maybe not a huge surprise when the same thing happened again when Ferguslie CC played Accies.  This is time the result was a dramatic tie: 83 for 4 playing 83 all out!  For Ferguslie Ahmad (25* retired) and Qasim Khan (2 for 15) made significant contributions to the drama – as did Safi (30) and Paterson (21) for Accies.  In the final match, Ahmad retired again (for 28) and Greg Shaw (19) built a good second wicket partnership for Ferguslie.  However, the Clydesdale spinners again had a huge role to play – their five overs conceding just 27 runs.  Ferguslie 70 for 4.  In reply, a “skipper’s knock” of 25 retired saw Clydesdale home – their five-wicket win coming with almost three overs to spare.

Congratulations to Clydesdale on their victory – and to Nikhil Koteeswaran (Clydesdale CC) who won another very tight contest for “Player of the Tournament”, just beating his teammates Sonny Cunningham, Bahadar Esakhiel, Robin Ferguson, Andrew Harden and Shahan Raja, Ferguslie CC duo Uzair Ahmad & Qasim Khan and Glasgow Accies CC duo Nasratullah Safi and Zain Shaikh.

Clydesdale CC win WDJCU Under 12 Super 8s, 2019

Clydesdale CC have won the WDJCU Under 12 Super 8s, 2019.

The group stages, on Sunday the 29th of December, saw Clydesdale CC win Group A and Glasgow Accies CC win Group B – with Ferguslie CC having the best net run rate of the runners-up and also progressing to the Final Group.  There were impressive individual performances from Clydesdale CC’s Bilal Ahmed (3 for 11) and Aaban Rashid (3-1-8-2), East Kilbride CC’s Yash Bajaj (22*, retired) and Ewan Mann (2 for 7), East Renfrewshire CC’s Muriam Ashraf (2 for 14), East Renfrewshire team II’s Yousaf Asrar (21*, retired), Ferguslie CC’s Jamie Rennie (43* and 22*, retired), Glasgow Accies CC’s Ramsay Brown (21*, retired), Dhruva Duggireddy (20*, retired), Ekaansh Kapila (2/9), Shaan Suvarna (26*, retired, and 2 for 12) and Pranav Walkay (21*, retired)

The final group took place in the morning on Monday the 30th of December.  Glasgow Accies CC won the toss and elected to bat first versus Clydesdale CC.  However, Clydesdale’s Ibrahim Khan took 2 for 2 in the second over and the momentum stayed with the Crossmyloof youngsters – Glasgow Accies 30 all out, with Clydesdale completing a seven-wicket win.  Game two saw Ferguslie CC have no answers to the Glasgow Accies opening bowlers (Kapila taking 2 for 10 and Suvarna 3 for 7), as Ferguslie were bowled out for 39 – before the Anniesland youngsters completed an eight-wicket win.  These results meant that Clydesdale just needed to avoid a huge defeat to win the title, in the final match of the competition.  They batted first and scored 110 for 3 off their ten overs – Innes Algie (16), Ben Atkinson (19), Khan (21*, retired) and Rashid (20*, retired) all making big contributions.  Khan then continued his “man of the match” effort, by taking 2 for 4, as Ferguslie finished 50 for 5 in reply – with Jamie Rennie (15) again being the mainstay of the reply from the Paisley youngsters.

Congratulations to Clydesdale on their victory – and to Ibrahim Khan (Clydesdale CC) who won a very tight contest for “Player of the Tournament”, just beating his teammate Aaban Rashid, Ferguslie CC’s Jamie Rennie and Glasgow Accies CC duo Ekaansh Kapila and Shaan Suvarna.

Clydesdale CC win the WDJCU Under 19 Super 8s, 2019

Clydesdale CC have won the single-group WDJCU Under 19 Super 8s, 2019.

Unfortunately, one of the teams had to withdraw after the draw was published, leaving Clydesdale to play Clydesdale II in a best-of-three final group – and meaning that the shield was definitely going to remain in the Titwood trophy cabinet!  Team one won game one, before team two won game two – to set up a “winner takes all” final match.  In this, team one prevailed by six wickets.

The three matches all saw the bat dominate the ball – with Bahadar Esakhiel scoring two 50s and Arman Farid (three times), Owen Gould (twice) and Ibrahim Faisal, Maryam Faisal & Nikhil Koteeswaran (all once) reaching the mandatory retirement score of 25.
