Ken Ross Game 12.5.19

Unfortunately, we are having to postpone the planned Highland/NCCC game for the 12th May.

Clashing fixture and player availability making it impossible to get two teams together.

We are rescheduling for September when we hope to celebrate Kens contribution to Cricket over the last 50 years. Keep an eye out for the date and let’s make it a special day for him.

Thanks have to go to Will Ford for trying to get this organised

EGM – 23rd April

A reminder to everyone that there will be an EGM at the Columba Hotel starting at 7pm. The only agenda item will be “changes to the constitution”.

All current members have received a copy of the amended constitution on the 4th March, for comment regarding the change of date for the AGM, re-wording to make the document gender neutral and team selection. These changes will be voted on and incorporated if accepted.

NCCC School Programme

2019 see’s the Wildcats starting to work with two feeder Primary Schools – Beauly and Kirkhill.

Beauly will be on the following dates: 25.4.19; 2.5.19; 9.5.19; 23.5.19; 30.5.19 and 6.6.19

It’ll be great to have the assistance of Lewis Pacey – one of the clubs up and coming young players and Alex Green – Cricket Scotland at some of the sessions.

Needless to say, if anyone wants to lend a hand then let Jon Ford know.

Inverness High School

At the start of February we will be running a series of lunch time cricket taster sessions at the High School, Inverness

It will be mainly S1 – S3 girls and boys we think and our aim its to get them interested in the game. So’ it’ll be mainly short, fun, sessions from 12.30 to 1.00.

Our Annual Awards Night was held on the 19th of October at the Crown Court Hotel.  A variety of curries and puddings were on the menu and were demolished by those attending.


Food gone, it was time to present the awards. This year we asked Ken Ross to help with the presentation of Reserve League Champions Medals to the 2nd team squad. This season was theirs, they had won the league convincingly and undefeated as well as being in the final of both the T20 and Knockout Cup – What a performance. Well done to everyone involved.

Other awards given on the night were:

Player of the year – Shaun Thomas

1st Team Bowler of the year – Shaun Thomas

2nd Team Bowler of the year – Neil Gallacher

2nd Team Batsman of the year – Akash Ahmed


1st Team Batsman of the year – Dave Dugdale

Most improved Players of the year – Lewis Pacey and Finlay Saunders

Duck award – Matty Latimer (This was disputed by Matty of course as he was last years winner as well) but we felt he deserved it for leaving the duck in his garden !!!

Biggest overall contribution to the club during the season – Mike Evans
