Falkland Cricket Club’s young cricketers, the Falcons, have just completed a great season with their U13s and U15s reaching the latter stages of national competitions.

The U13s finished runners up to Grange CC (Edinburgh) in the final of the Nat West Cup and also reached the quarter final of the Scottish Cup with the U15s progressing to the semi final of the Scottish Cup and quarter final of the Nat West Cup.

The younger players at U11 and Kwik Cricketers have also continued to make excellent progress and for the first time the club fielded their first ever ‘girls only’ Kwik Cricket team.

There are also several players who have represented Fife, Tayside and Fife and the Caledonia region.

Robbie Nellies, youth convenor said: “It really has been a great season for our juniors.

“We have seen our membership continue to grow and have more children than ever playing fun and organised cricket.

“However, this success would not have been possible without the fantastic support provided by the Falcons’ main sponsor CKD Galbraith.

“We are most grateful for the firm’s continuing sponsorship and interest in helping develop grass roots sport.”
