Ladies 2s captain interview

ladies 2nd XI

Hi Sarah,

You won the west district league, can you tell us more about your season?

When we were promoted to Division 3 last year we didn’t expect to win, our aim was simply to remain within the new division and most of all have fun. Throughout the season the girls consistently met every challenge they were faced with, supporting each other at every moment and pulling together at the hardest of times to come out the other side and secure out position as the winners of Division 3. The girls worked extremely hard to achieve this goal, and I am incredibly proud of them all.

There is one person in particular we couldn’t have done this without, and that is the Ladies 2s Coach, Colin Stark. Colin's training sessions are always well structured, enjoyable and relevant, both individually and as a team. His presence on the sideline was like an extra member on the pitch, and we cannot thank him enough for everything he has done.

I would also like to thank the various Umpires who attended our games, but in particular Andrew Meikle, who covered many of our matches both home and away and consistently provided a high level of umpiring.

What are your goals for the next season?

When entering into a new division it is hard to know what to expect, but most importantly our aim is to continue to develop and enjoy ourselves along the way. We have already started pre-season training to allow us to continue to improve our skills and fitness, both individually and as a team. If last year’s season has taught us anything, it’s that together we can face anything the new division has to throw at us.

What do you think of Uddingston cricket & sports club?

When I moved from my life long home in Wales to Scotland for my graduate job I was seeking to contintue playing hockey after being involved in the sport since High School. From the first moment I got in touch with Uddingston Cricket & Sports club I was made to feel welcome. I was immediately invited to a mixed hockey summer game where I was made to feel like I had always been part of the team. From the outset I have been made to feel at home. What I love most about the club is that it presents so many opportunities, regardless of age or ability, where new members are always welcomed with open arms.

Gents 2nd captain interview

Hi Martin,

You finished last in the men’s regional league division 1. Can you tell us more about your season ?

Our season was very much one of two very different halves. The first half of the season up to Christmas we struggled to put out a regular team due to injuries and low availability. This hindered the team from building up much momentum and stability and the poor results reflected that. The team needed fresh impetus after Christmas going into the second half of the season and the changes made had the desired effect. With Nairn Scobie taking on the coaching role and alongside daniel stirling (team manager) and with myself taking on captaincy there was a fresh take on moving the team forward and all the players to a man really raised their game. Their intensity at training and their general commitment to the team was fantastic. The run of wins against the top sides of the division was testament to that and unfortunately it just proved too little to late to avoid the relegation spot with other results going against us on the very last day of the season.

How do you see the next season ?

The second team players can take heart from the performances to the tail end of the season with the young players in particular showing great maturity and growth in their play/ability and and will be a vital part in our drive to bounce straight back up. Nothing less than winning the league is acceptable next season and we are very much capable of doing so through maintaining a consistent squad and putting the effort in on the training ground.

What do you think of Uddingston cricket & sports club ?

The club is absolutely fantastic, second to none. Having been part of this club for as long as I can remember it never ceases to amaze me as to how much has been achieved over the years. From the state of the art facilities to the world class youth set up, its great to see how far the club has come. None if this would be possible without the drive, commitment, blood sweat and tears being put into this club by various members who are continually volunteering to ensure the continued growth and success of this amazing club.
