Introduction

The University of St Andrews Men's Cricket Club is one of the oldest and most prominent sports clubs at the University. Regularly organising tours to exotic places around the word such as Grenada, India, St Lucia, and most recently, Sri Lanka, the Club welcomes all levels of experience including complete newcomers and seasoned cricketers. With 3 competitive teams, everyone in the club has the opportunity to play some form of cricket, and for those seeking to play at the highest level, in 2014-15 the Men's 1st XV were promoted into the British Universities and Colleges (BUCS) Premier League for the first time in the Club's history.

In addition to summer fixtures and the biannual tour, the Club takes part in the Scottish University Indoor Championships over the winter, runs weekly net sessions, hosts regular dinners at the Balaka (the Club's long standing sponsor) and runs a day of cricket on the beach at Elie, just down the coast.

Coaching

The Club practices twice a week and is coached by members of the Men's 1st XI and former Scotland cricketer turned professional cricket coach Iain Stewart.

Teams & Competitions

The Club competes in the British Universities and Colleges (BUCS) Indoor and Outdoor leagues, as well as plenty of friendly matches during the year. Indoor fixtures take place in November and January, with the outdoor season beginning after the Spring break.

Recreational Sessions

The club does not offer separate recreational sessions, however practices are very friendly and anyone is welcome to try out the sport. With no obligation to play in matches, members can come along and just enjoy the training sessions for a bit of exercise.

Outreach & Charity

The club is currently developing their outreach programme. During the 2014-15 Season, members of the squad volunteered their time to help assist their coach Iain with girls cricket sessions at the local St Leonards School. From September 2015, the club will be coaching at Madras College once a week for at least an hour.
