Welcome to the Forty Club (Scotland District)
You've found us, the cricket team in Scotland that tries to put something back into Scottish cricket. The Forty Club (Scotland District) is open to those cricketers who wish to help develop cricket in Scotland through playing against and giving experience to young cricketers.
We cater for enjoyable cricket played on good wickets, there is also a very competitive Inter District Competition.
Our aim is to play and take competitive cricket played in the proper spirit and behaviour to schools and district age sides throughout Scotland.
We have also added a nice blend of club fixtures at picturesque grounds around Scotland including Dollar, Comrie, Manderston, Helensburgh, Glendelvine, Crathie and Carradale and Tyninghame.
There are 14 School Fixtures during April, May and June, including for the first time a match against Hutcheson's G.S.
In July the club takes part in the now very succesful XL Club Inter-District Northern Festival, this year being staged in Harrogate. There are also further games against Scotland District Age sides including one at the beautiful Manderston ground in July.
The season for us comes to a close in September as we pit our wits at opposite ends of the country on the Clyde Estuary, Royal Deeside, Perthshire, the Mull of Kyntyre and the season ends at Tyninghame on the East Coast.
