New Clubhouse Update

Work begins shortly on the new clubhouse with the foundation work starting before the end of March.  The decor has been selected, site visits taken place and all plans are in place.

The Lewisvale project is the 5th of 5 being undertaken by East Lothian Council. Delays in other projects over the winter due to the weather means the expected completion date is now 14th June.

The club is sure it will be worth the wait.

New Pavillion Approved

This week the club received the fantastic news that all plans for the new pavillion have been approved.

As Lewisvale Park is an ancient monumented site, permission was required from Historic Scotland to undertake the works at the park.  This was formally received this week.

Funding for the build is being provided by East Lothian Council, who in turn received a £500000 grant from SportsScotland as part of 6 pavillion development/upgrade for the local area.

The plan is for the new pavillion to be open in the Spring/Summer of 2010 meaning the new facility will be in use for the 2010 season.  This will be very much appreciated by both club members and opposition teams.

Musselburgh Cricket Club would like to thank East Lothian Council, in particular Eamon John, for their support and efforts to get this project approved.

Both League Teams Promoted

2009 has turned out to be another successful season for Musselburgh Cricket Club.

Both the first and second XI gained promotion from their respective divisions and both, therefore, will move up one division each for the 2010 season.

The 1st XI secured promotion with a convincing win over local rivals, Preston Village CC, on the second last match day of the season while the 2nd XI won their final game of the season against Dunfermline Wanderers, to ensure promotion was theirs.

In 2010 the 1st XI will compete in ESCA Division 2 while the 2nd XI will now ply their trade in Division 5.

This year's results continue the recent trend of promotions for the club.  The 1st XI has now been promoted 5 out of the last 6 seasons and the 2nd XI 3 out of 4 seasons.

On a slight downside, Musselburgh CC lost the final of the President's Trophy Cup competition to Holy Cross.  But the club can be very happy with it's achievements just to get to the final, where the team knocked out three Division 1 teams along the way, including eventual 2009 ESCA division 1 winners, Fauldhouse CC.

The strength of the club now means discussions about entering a 3rd XI into the league for 2010 has begun.  In order for this to occur the club will need to embark on a recruitment drive over the winter.  Plans to target more Queen Margaret University students, Jewel & Esk College students and local East Lothian residents are being arranged.

Musselburgh CC will once again be holding indoor winter nets sessions at Loretto Sports Hall, in Musselburgh, for those with nothing to do in the cold and wet winter nights.

If you are interested to start playing again, have recently moved to the Musselburgh area, want a change of playing scenery or wish to take up the game of cricket  for the first time please contact the club via the Contact Us tab on the website and we will get back to you with details of the indoor sessions.

We are looking for players of all ages, sex & ability.
