Cricket Camp a big hit

2008 Cricket Scotland Summer Camp

2008 Cricket Scotland Summer Camp

The Cricket Scotland Cricket Camp held this week at Nunholm had an excellent turnout with thirty youngsters from around the region attending the three days of coaching and games. The camp was led by first class cricketer New Zealander Grant Robinson who plays for Northern Districts and is the professional at the West of Scotland club.

The camp was arranged through and supported by the Council’s Leisure and Sport Department and organised by Cricket Scotland and the D&G Cricket Youth Development Group.

Unfortunately after good weather on day one the coaches had to wrestle with rain on days two and three and the camp had to evacuate to the Keswick Centre in the afternoons. However the facilities at the Sports Club were also able to provide an escape from the rain. So thanks go the coaches whose ingenuity was tested – Robinson, Rennie and Geary!
