2020 Season Update and Plans for 2021
On Saturday 4th July we began preparations for a reduced season of cricket in 2020. We'll update you as soon as possible on exactly what this season may look like.
In the meantime, please see this letter (click on the PDF) for details for how we're approaching 2020, the plans we want to start making for 2021 to celebrate our 200th year, and requests for any help you can provide to get us ready for this celebration.
2020 Season Postponed until 1st July
Cricket Scotland have confirmed that all cricket in Scotland will be postponed until 1st July at the earliest. Additionally, no competitive league cricket will be played in 2020, no friendly games can take place before 1st August and cup competitions won't go ahead.
Junior and senior training is therefore postponed until the situation changes.
End of 2019 Season!
With the 2019 season coming to an end we can now reflect on a season of mixed results to match the mixed weather! Kelso ended the season in 6th place in the Championship with the middle places in the league being closely contested. In fact, another 2 victories during the season would have put us in the play off for promotion.
Congratulations to all the players who represented Kelso during the season. It was good to see a number of youngsters making their debuts for the club which hopefully will put us in a strong position for future years.
Thanks also to our 2 overseas players, Joel Veeran and Troy Chilcott, both of whom have made a significant contribution during the summer. We thank them for choosing Kelso Cricket Club and hope they have enjoyed their experience with us.
Well done also to our Junior section - record numbers at coaching sessions and success for the U15's in the Junior Border League. All Stars on Fridays also attracted lots of participants.
Sponsors Day 2019
Kelso CC were delighted with the support shown to the Club on Sponsors Day which was held on Saturday 17th August 2019 at the last home game of the season.
Aston Lark and Border Motor Group were our two main Sponsors for the 2019 season. Hearty thanks are extended to them as well as to all our other Sponsors for their very generous support.
Kelso Cricket Club Farmers Lunch : Saturday 25th May 2019
Kelso Cricket Club hosted the 3rd annual Farmers Lunch on Saturday 25th May 2019. A big thank you to all those who came along and enjoyed the afternoon - a great lunch and a few beers kept everyone in good spirits despite the rain! After a stop/start game, it was good to see Kelso win the match against Murrayfield DAFS - a total of 369 runs were scored meaning Wul Stewart picked up the cash prize! A special mention of the day's sponsors Ancroft Tractors must also be made - thanks very much for once again supporting the Farmers Lunch!
Kelso Cricket Club has an online Club Shop, with training clothing and accessories available to purchase via our kit providers official website. Kelso Cricket Club is proud to be provided kit by Kukri for the previous three seasons.
KCC Preparing for 2019 Season
Lots of work is going on behind the scenes to prepare for the 2019 season. We're pleased to announce that two overseas players will be joining us for the summer - Joel Veeran who played colts cricket for South Africa and has just been signed as a professional by KwaZulu-Natal and Troy Chilcott, a batsman / wicketkeeper from New Zealand. They both arrive in the middle of April and we wish them every success with bat, ball and gloves and hope they enjoy their summer in Kelso.
