AN URGENT appeal is being made by one of the oldest sporting institutions in Kirkcaldy for new players to keep it going.

Dunnikier Cricket Club, established in 1856, is in dire need of cricketers of all ages to help defend the Forth Cricket Union title the club won in the 2011 season.

And there are fears that if new blood is not found soon, it could spell the end for the last surviving cricket club in the town.

The club’s Friday night indoor training sessions are due to begin on March 9 at Kirkcaldy High School at 8 p.m.

Matches are played on Sundays in a 30/30 format, with a start time of around noon and lasting about four hours.

The club is especially keen to recruit cricketers with experience.

Any interested parties should contact Alan Cutter, club president, on (01592) 202343.
