Methlick Cricket Club, Aberdeenshire

Welcome to Methlick Cricket Club and the 2017 season.

Hello and welcome to the Methlick cricket clubs' web site. 

Welcome to a new season at Methlick Cricket Club from the President, Lord Aberdeen, our committee and all players and members.

We have a new committee with myself taking over as Chairman after three years of sterling work from Charlie Coulson, a new first team Captain in Steve Murphy, Liz Shepherd returning after a year’s break and welcoming Kate Brewer to assist with events and publicity.

After last year’s floods when we only managed six games at Lairds, Charlie and Neil have been extremely hard at work with the drainage on the field, unblocking existing pipes and adding new drains, and the outfield has already changed from a green sponge to something approaching its former glory. Thanks also go to everyone else that has helped in preparation for the upcoming season.

And what a season we are hoping it to be. Once again we field two teams in Grade II and Grade IV of the Aberdeenshire Grades and Jamie Jones is doing wonders with our Junior Section, so we welcome players of all abilities and ages to join us.

Our Gala Day grows in popularity year-on-year and we are investing in new ideas for this year’s event on 2nd September. We will completely refurbish our seasons swansong Sporting Dinner and plans have been started for an new function so please watch this space for notifications.

Our playing season kicks off with friendlies and the Brigg’s Bowl in April and the first league games on 6th May. Training has begun with juniors on Tuesday and seniors on Wednesday. A friendly beer is always to be had afterwards at the Ythanview – although not for the juniors. Sorry kids!

Here’s to an excellent 2017.

Best wishes.

Mark Woodhouse

Chairman.

Cup Match Reports in Brief

Saturday 13th of May
1st XI Methlick vs Stoneywood-Dyce

Methlick’s faltering start to the season continued at People’s Park on Saturday, and once again a failure to put a decent score together was the main contributing factor as the men from Lairds were bowled out for 112 on a very green wicket. With the expected slick outfield at Dyce that was never going to be a defendable target.

Saturday 6th of May
1st XI Methlick vs Arrawdawn Gordonians

A new season and a typically un-tropical north-easterly met Methlick when they arrived at Counteswells to open their Grade 2 account for 2017 on Saturday.

New captain, Steve Murphy, decided to bat first and put pressure on a youthful looking Gordonians. Mark Woodhouse and Stuart Anderson opened on a very good looking, hard wicket and from the outset bowler Shaikh, the Gordos captain, managed to extract swing and seam from the track after starting with a maiden.
