Welcome to Dumfries Cricket Club
Dumfries Cricket ClubDumfries Cricket Club was formed in 1853. The club during this time has played all of its home matches at Nunholm. The quality of the playing surface has gradually improved over the years and the club is now widely regarded as having one of the best grounds in Scottish Cricket.
On the playing side Dumfries was one of the founder members of the Border League. The club participated in this league until the early 1990s with some success winning the league championship in 1938 and 1993.
Dumfries now compete in the Western union divisions 1 and 3 respectively. The league forms part of the feeder system to the Scottish National leagues with the winning side each year being involved in a play off.
The club is strongly involved in youth development and has four grade 1 qualified coaches. Many of the clubs current players have come via the clubs youth coaching programme. In recent years the club has been involved in sending coaches into local primary schools with the aim of introducing cricket to children at an early age.
Dumfries has been fortunate over the past few seasons to enlist the services of an overseas amateur/professional from Australia. The club has developed strong links with Lambton New Lambton C.C. from Newcastle, Australia. This has helped Dumfries 1st Eleven to finish consistently in the top half off the Western union division 1.
