St Boswells Cricket Club is raising money to allow us to install a new artificial pitch on the cricket square. We already have grants in place, but need to find another £1600 to make up the difference – please help the club in any way you can, by attending events, using the bar or making donations. If you would like to make a donation, please contact email@example.com.
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.
If you would like to hire our social area at other times then please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Very reasonable rates for meetings, and no charge for events using the bar.
