It is a great privilege, as captain of the Edinburgh Academical Cricket Club, to warmly welcome you to the club for the 2016 cricket season.

Following a successful 2015 campaign, which saw both Accies 1st XI and 2nd XI finish well in their respective Leagues, this year has seen an influx of new members and offers exciting prospects for the upcoming season.

Congratulations to Accies Indoor Cricket six-a-side team who won their Indoor League. A sterling team effort and fantastic precedent to summer cricket.

I am delighted to announce that our sponsors this year are Laing Edinburgh and Moët & Chandon. I will be awarding a Moët Moment for all 1st XI League matches, with the winner receiving a bottle of Moët Ice Impérial.

After match drinks and socials will be plentiful throughout the season. The success of the inaugural Accies rugby and cricket T20 event is greatly anticipated and we’re hoping to replicate similar weather on what was the best day of the year.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone the best of luck this season and I’m sure there will be plenty of moments to celebrate. We are proud of our 161-year history and to all the new members an especially warm welcome to Accies – the oldest Old Boys’ cricket club in Scotland.
