Welcome to the Western District Cricket Union website.  The Union organises and promotes cricket to half the population of Scotland, from Dumfries & Galloway in the south-west, up the west coast, and across the central belt to the Forth Valley.  We co-ordinate with the West District Junior Cricket Union, local authorities and Cricket Scotland to encourage youth development and provide a structured developmental pathway to ensure the game flourishes and grows at all levels.  From the Premier Division to the Greenwood Trophy, the Union provides competitions for all its member clubs, from 50-over Saturday cricket to competitive T20 competitions.

Latest news and notices

  • Parking Restrictions at Hamilton Crescent (22nd March 2018)

    West of Scotland CC is sorry to advise that Hamilton Crescent is now in the middle of a restricted parking zone from 8am to 6pm Mondays to Saturdays.

    If you have players or supporters travelling to West by car for a Saturday match, please note that we will have visitors permits available in the Clubhouse. These will cost £2 each and will cover the period from 12 noon to 6pm.

    West of Scotland CC will continue to lobby against these restrictions as they seem unnecessary on a Saturday, but GCC will not consider any amendments until 2019 at the earliest. WSCC apologises for the inconvenience and expense this will cause.

  • Cricket Scotland Tapeball League Finals Day (7th March 2018)

    Cricket Scotland’s Tapeball League is ready to conclude its first year with a hotly anticipated Finals Day at Holyrood Leisure Centre on Sunday 18th March 2018 – 12 noon to 3pm, Glasgow Life – Holyrood Leisure Centre, 600 Aikenhead Road, Glasgow, G42 0PD.

    The competition has included two leagues with over 170 players registered and brought together a diverse range of participants. It has also attracted new participants and lapsed players, with over 70% of players not part of regular cricket clubs. The inaugural tournament has received excellent support and backing from local communities and leaders, including Councillor Graham Campbell and Anas Sarwar MSP, which has helped boost the profile and visibility of the tournament. With a busy and successful year one nearly complete, with 64 matches having already been contested, we expect the interest and team entries to grow in the 2nd edition. I have attached the Tapeball league facts info-graphics and the finals day leaflet for your perusal.

    Please read the attached flyers for further information:
