How to find us

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.

A fitting end to the 2019 cricket season

Saturday, August 31st, 2019

The 2019 cricket season ended on a fitting note when incessant rain ruled out any prospect of the Glenpark XI's final league fixture with Kingholm going ahead. Indeed the game was called off on Friday evening as it was clear then that play would be impossible. As a result the Glenpark XI finished the season in fourth place in the Fourth Division.

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.

The 1st XI season ends in a whimper

Monday, August 26th, 2019

The 1st XI's season ended without any action as Glenpark was deemed unfit for play, despite strenuous efforts to get the ground playable. This is the fourth game that has been cancelled out of the last five which eloquently shows the effect that the weather has had in the latter part of the season. Ah well, roll on 2020!

The weather wins again ... and Greenock are safe

Saturday, August 17th, 2019

The 1st XI's game with Stirling County has been called off due to New Williamfield being unfit for play due to the unremitting rain that has fallen in the past few weeks. With Drumpellier's game with Clydesdale also being cancelled, this means that Greenock's place in the Premier Division is secured, irrespective of what happens in the last games of the season next week.

The Glenpark XI's game at Glenpark did go ahead and they secured a fine win over Hamilton Crescent by 83 runs. Batting first, they knocked up 169 for 8 in their 40 overs with young Cammy Calder top-scoring with 53. In reply, Hamilton Crescent were never really in the hunt and were bowled out for 86, Tom Forrest taking 4 for 9 and Dave Sharma 3 for 22.

Greenock come up just short - yet again

Monday, August 5th, 2019

For what seems the umpteenth time this season, Greenock came up just short, this time in a tense struggle with league leaders Uddingston. On a pitch made tricky by the recent poor weather, Greenock bowled out their visitors for just 102 with an excellent bowling and fielding display, spear-headed by Sean Fischer-Keogh who took 4 for 32 and rounded off the innings with a hat-trick. They made a decent start in reply, being 53 for 3 at one stage of their innings, but the depth of the Uddingston bowling proved too much in the end and Greenock fell just short by 18 runs.

Peter Hempsey's weekly report gives all the details of a match where Greenock came so close to a shock result.

Recognition for Saurabh Bandekar

Thursday, August 1st, 2019

Greenock's Indian professional, Saurabh Bandekar, whose form has been outstanding in the Premier Division this season, has been called up to play for the Western Warriors against the Eastern Knights at the Grange in Edinburgh next Monday, 5th August in a T20 fixture. Everyone at Glenpark is delighted at this recognition of Saurabh's fine performances this season.
