Fraserburgh Cricket Club hosted their annual cricket festival for primary school pupils last month.

And, luckily for those involved, the rain stayed away.

Ten local schools took part in the day which was said to be a great success. For the first time in the festival’s history, every team won at least one game.

The eventual overall winners were Crimond, who narrowly defeated Rosehearty in the final.

The Fair Play Award for good sportsmanship was given to Rathen, while the most improved side from the training sessions was Inverallochy.

The other schools who took part were St Combs, Tyrie, Lochpots, South Park, North and St Andrews.

The club would like to remind those who took part, as well as any youngster interested in cricket, that junior training sessions take place at Fraserburgh’s cricket pitch, on Tuesday evenings at 6pm.

For anyone else interested in playing cricket, senior practices take place on Friday evenings from 6pm, also at Fraserburgh’s cricket pitch (East Links).

Everyone of all abilities is welcome to come down.
