Sean strikes for the Scots Under-19s

Tuesday, January 21st, 2020

Having sat out Scotland's first match in the Under-19 World Cup, Sean Fischer-Keogh took his chance when picked for the second match against Bangladesh. Batting number 11, he remained defiantly unbeaten on 3 as Scotland were dismissed for just 89. But opening the bowling, he took a wicket with the very first ball of the Bangladesh innings and finished with 3 for 27 as Bangladesh won by 7 wickets. That's a stout effort, Sean, and everyone at the Club is right behind you. Good luck for the remaining matches in the tournament.

Graham White - updated

Saturday, October 19th, 2019

It is with great sadness that members of the Club learned of the death today of Graham White.

Graham, or Chalky as he was known to everyone, played for the 1st XI from 1957 until 1970, although his appearances were at time restricted by work commitments. In his career, he took 166 wickets with his probing off-spin, the highlight being 8 for 62 against West Lothian County and he also scored 661 runs, mainly as a lower-order batsman.

After retiring from the game, he became a faithful supporter of the team and was always to be seen at Glenpark as he followed the fortunes of the Club. Graham will be sadly missed by all who knew him and our sincere condolences go to Graham's widow, Agnes, and all his family and friends.

Chalky's funeral will be held on Tuesday 29th October at 12 noon at Greenock Crematorium.

Moira McInnes

Friday, September 6th, 2019

Members of the Club were shocked to learn of the sudden passing of Moira McInnes earlier this week. Moira had been a member of the Club for many years, joining first as a member of Greenock Ladies Hockey Club and continuing as a great supporter of the Club after her playing days were over. Her bubbly personality made her a friend of everyone who came about the Club and she will be sadly missed. Our sincere condolences go to her family and all her friends.

1st XI averages published

Thursday, August 29th, 2019

With the 1st XI's season complete, the averages have now been compiled and can be found via the link on the right-hand side of this page. It would be fair to say that, apart from Saurabh Bandekar, the batting averages make for fairly grisly reading. Overall the averages underline what a huge impact Saurabh had on the team's performances.

The historical averages have also been updated. One milestone which was missed during the summer was Jonathan Hempsey becoming the 22nd player in the Club's history to take over 250 career wickets.
