Inter-Regional Championships 

Unfortunately, like all of cricket in Scotland in 2012 the U18 and U15 Inter-Regional competitions were badly affected by the weather.  In the U18 event both the Western Warriors and Eastern Knights completed only two of their six scheduled matches winning both against the Caledonian Highlanders.  The Knights finish top of the table by securing the maximum 4 points in an outright win in a two day match against the Highlanders.  

 In the U15 competition the Caledonian Highlanders won both of their completed fixtures in convincing fashion to finish top of the table ahead of the Western Warriors.

The U15 residential festival and both the U18 and U15 T20 days were completely washed out.
