NEW YEAR AT THE CLUB
Owing to the closure of the British Legion in St Boswells, the club has taken the decision to open at various times over the Christmas and New Year period. On Saturday 27th December (time TBC) there will be a Bar Games Evening and general drinks session(!) for members and their guests hosted by Mucky.
We are also open for Hogmanay (New Year’s Eve) to cater for people who would like to drink and have a bit of fun in a relaxed, informal environment. The bar will be open on Wednesday 31st January from 7pm and we will make sure it is well stocked with the cheapest drinks in the village, plus music and any other entertainment we can think of! Come along and join us – we have a license until 1am.
On New Year’s Day, from 12 noon, we will be opening up for our annual New Year’s Day Cricket Match. Played for the ceremonial quaich, everyone who wants a game gets into two teams and plays for as many overs as there are bowlers – that’s everyone in each team – trying to score as many runs in the least amount of time. Whatever the weather, THE GAME WILL BE PLAYED. We’ll try and start as close to 1pm as we can
Of course, the bar will be open serving great value drinks and welcoming everyone whether they play cricket or not. See you there.
St Boswells Cricket Club is a long established Scottish Borders club with a distinguished competitive record and an excellent development structure. We compete in the East of Scotland League, currently in Division 1, while retaining a team in the Border League, and also competing in club competitions in the Borders. We are the current Border Sunday League and Sixes champions.
Founded in 1895 and established on the current site since 1920, St Boswells Cricket Club has a rich and interesting history intimately tied into the history of St Boswells village. In the last ten years the club has grown in stature, creating a regular Second XI and a growing Youth Development programme. St Boswells Cricket Club also stands at the vanguard of Scottish ladies cricket, having a competitive ladies cricket team that contains a number of national squad players.
Our facilities are impressive for a small club which fully meet the standard required for National Leagues including portable sightscreens and a full set of covers. The 2011 season also saw the installation of two full-length, high quality practice nets and to add to the existing Astroturf playing wicket. The clubhouse has a well-stocked bar and lounge area, with home and away changing facilities. The club has gained planning permission for a major expansion to allow for enhanced changing facilities, as well as improved hospitality.
The Club is an important part of village life in St Boswells. The Clubhouse opens up on Friday and Saturday nights throughout the playing season (Friday nights off-season) as well as hosting a variety of social events including quizzes, music and race nights. We also play our part in the Midsummer Village Week with family sports events at either end of the week.
