Kippen Cricket Club

The Wednesday team season has, as of the end of June, reached its halfway point and so far we have only lost one match to the weather, which must be some sort of record. We did play one match against Stirling County down at the Meiklewood ground with thunderstorms all around and a fork of lightning providing illumination. The one match called off was the Kippen/ Gargunnock derby match for the Quaich trophy but this crucial match has been rearranged for the 27th August.

So far, though the team has played well in competitive matches, we always seem to come out at the wrong side of the results. The closest being when Kippen were chasing down the 150 scored by Doune and reached 149 on the final ball. The Kippen/ Gargunnock Sunday team have been struggling for players on a Sunday, so we are always interested in anyone free for friendly Sunday games. Please let me know, by text on my number 07798891729, or by email For the Quaich match we will need 22 players from Kippen and Gargunnock.
