Fraserburgh Cricket club received a boost for the remainder of the season with a new kit sponsored by Aberdeen-based consultancy firm SKF.

This season has proved problematic for the side but they are hoping a new kit and new sponsor will help the team find some winning form.

A spokesperson from SKF said: “We were delighted to be able to provide new shirts and caps for the cricketers here in Fraserburgh. It is an ongoing policy of SKF to support local sporting teams and initiatives in the Aberdeen area.”

This season was always going to prove tough for a Broch side missing three of their key performers from last year and so it has proved with the side fighting a battle to avoid relegation from Grade 2 of the Aberdeenshire Cricket Grades.

With only one win so far against their relegation rivals Academy CC the club (pictured left in their new kit) moves into the second half of the season hoping that the significant number of home games remaining until the season draws to an end in late August will be an advantage when trying to pick up points.

The overwhelming positive from the season so far being the emergence of the new generation of Broch cricketers with some encouraging individual performances with bat, ball and in the field from Ryan Duthie, Ross Smith, Andrew Henderson and Will Ramsay to name a few.

If your interested in coming to the games, below is a list of the remaining home fixtures for Fraserburgh CC.
