School Cricket Competitions 2015

16 Mar

Cricket Scotland is delighted to announce the launch of the 2015 School Cricket Competitions.  

Each school year, Cricket Scotland runs a series of National School Competitions.  The aims of the competitions are simple: to get more school pupils interested in cricket, to get more school pupils participating in cricket, to provide a competitive option for schools and ultimately to find the National Champion in each competition.

 

Network Rail2015 is an exciting year for the School Cricket Competitions.  The highlight will, once again, be the National Primary Schools’ Cup.  We are delighted to be working in partnership with Network Rail to deliver the competition which will be known as the Network Rail National Primary Schools’ Cup.  

 

Cricket FactoryWe are also pleased that Cricket Factory remain the sponsors of our S1-3, softball competition – with the Cricket Factory Cup being specifically designed for schools that do not have a recent history of offering cricket to their pupils.  

 

There is also an exciting new development for 2015 – with the addition of a second Girls Secondary School competition.  The S1-3 Girls competition will be running for a second year – with a new competition for girls in S4-6 running for the first time.
