From Andy Gale STCC secretary –

Great News! Stonehaven Thistle Cricket club have a green light from Cricket Scotland for a cricket season in 2021.

The Club has purchased new cricket covers for the pitch, with the help of Aberdeenshire Council and the KDP Windfarm. Advertising space is still available on the cricket covers at very reasonable rates but time is limited as the covers are due to be installed on 10th May. Any business interested, contact stcc_secretary@hotmail.com.

This investment brings our members the very best facilities and playing surfaces possible. In 2020, although no cricket was played, the committee upgraded the practice nets at Mineralwell so the Club can hit the ground running in 2021.

The Club is currently in a recruitment drive for cricketers of all ages and abilities for 2021. Anyone interested can find us on Facebook or go to the website: www.stonehavencricket.co.uk/membership/

League matches are due to begin in May with a friendly beforehand. The first outdoor practice will be for senior players on Wednesday 21st April, starting at 6pm. Junior practice is the following day, Thursday 22nd April, starting at the same time. Updated guidance regarding social distancing etc. will be available on the website.
