Club Bowled out for a Whole Year


Byline: Kurt Bayer

THE classic summer sound of leather on willow has reverberated around the quaint ground for the last 175 years - with only two World Wars managing to temporarily stop play.

But now one of Scotland's most historic cricket clubs has been bowled out - due to its crumbling pavilion and a chronic lack of players.

Cupar Cricket Club in Fife has decided to pull out of the sport for a year in the hope of finding a solution to its problems.

The club has performed with distinction in the lush surrounds of Duffus Park since 1836 - and was formed officially in 1884.

The team has competed in the Strathmore and Perthshire Cricket Union and even attracted worldclass international stars as club professionals.

Now the hard-working committee of Cupar CC has been left with no choice but to abandon play this season.

Gordon Anderson, club secretary and the First XI's experienced wicketkeeper, confirmed the devastating blow.

He admitted: 'We have been struggling for players in recent years, and also the previous winter we had problems with the plumbing in our clubhouse.

'The clubhouse is not really suitable for hosting games.

'We had hoped to give it a go this season but a couple of players were not going to be available for training or matches.

'Due to the combination of these factors, we are taking a break this year.' The club's clubhouse - complete with clock - has steadily fallen into disrepair in recent years.

The committee had hoped to benefit from new facilities in the upgrade of the neighbouring Douglas Bader Memorial Garden.
