BBC Sport's Get Inspired project are looking for stories that champion participation in sport. Get Inspired is a project that aims to encourage grassroots participation across all sport. Ahead of the Scotland v England cricket match in May, they are looking for some nice stories about participation in cricket in Scotland (preferably in the North East). This could be a club holding open days, a significant team or a remarkable story. Really, it could be anything. If you or your club have been involved in anything that you think might be interesting, please contact Scott Currie at BBC Sport Scotland.

QUARTER-FINALS (Sunday 27 July)

Member clubs will be aware that shortly before the Spring Meeting intimation was received that St Ronald CC had merged with Cults (incorporating Artisans) CC.
The players of the former St Ronald 2nd team have requested that they should not be covered by this merger; and following further discussion the merged club has indicated that, in the interests of harmony and not binding to itself players who are unwilling to be part of it, it is willing that such a de-merger occur; provided that it is clearly understood that the St Ronald name remains with the merged club, and that the de-merged entity assumes full legal and financial responsibilities formerly attaching to the 2nd St Ronald team.

Since the Agenda for the Spring Meeting was prepared, notice has been received that, following discussions over the winter, St. Ronald CC has formally voted to merge with Cults (including Artisans) CC; and Cults to withdraw its team in Grade 3.
Subject to approval by the Cults AGM the Club will in 2014 be fielding 2 sides, Cults-Artisans and St Ronald 2 in Grade 1 [Rule 13f will therefore apply], and one team, St Ronald in Grade 2. The Grade 3 Cults-Artisans team will be withdrawn.. Cults-Artisans and St Ronald will play at the Allan Park:
In accordance with precedent this means that the team which finished 7th in Grade 3 in 2013 [<name>] will now replace Cults-Artisans in Grade 3 in 2014, and in the draw for the Reid Cup. Grade 4 will revert to 7 sides, or if the Association votes to accept the late application for re-election from Stonehaven 8 sides, in each case playing each other twice, and Stonehaven, if re-elected, also assuming the vacant slot in the Johnston Cup draw.

Another cold and wet day in Huntly was hardly the atmosphere for cricket, yet it was not cold enough to deter the North’s budding cricketers from Aberdeenshire, Moray and Highland Under-13s Area squads, as they all travelled to the Gordon Schools for the second Inter Area Cricket Festival.
Before the tournament began, all the teams had a chance to meet each other and the sportsmanship showed was only beaten by the hunger for a great days cricket. Neil Cameron, Cricket Scotland’s Club Development Manager and tournament organiser, explained the rules, which were similar to Kwik Cricket Pairs outside, namely batters in pairs for 2 overs, everyone bowling one over from the same end, batters changing ends at the end of an over and when a wicket is lost and the customary -5 for each wicket lost.
This event being indoors, however, meant a few additional rules; one run scored for the ball striking either side wall and the wall behind the ‘keeper, batters scored 2 runs for successfully completing a run, 4 scored for aerial shots directly onto the boundary wall (wall behind the umpire/bowler) and 6s for balls hit straight along the ground, to promote proper cricketing technique. There were also scoring gates at common gaps on a cricket field which if successfully pierced by batsman, had a double score incentive.
As with the outdoor pairs version, each wide and no-ball conceded scores two runs to the batting team who are further rewarded with a free-hit; this would prove both costly for fielding teams and a lucrative source of runs for the batting teams!

A couple of things that you might like to consider:
Early rounds are regionalised to minimise travel.
If you do not have enough under-13s/u-15s to field a team have you considered:
combining with a neighbouring club, or combining with more than one neighbouring club?
Any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
