21 Oct 2016 : New For Season 2017
New For Season 2017

Meadowmill Sport Centre looks a bit different now after the latest phase of cricket related developments. Tranent Cricket Club moved to the centre in 2013 after securing funding from Sported and sponsors Hutchinson Networks and The Scott Glynn Experience. This funding enabled the club to lay an artificial wicket for use in senior and junior games.

Since then there has been an explosion of interest in cricket with Tranent and surrounding villages to the extent that we now run 3 Saturday competitive sides and 2 midweek social sides.

Partnership working with East Lothian Council, Cricket Scotland, Last Man Stands, Enjoy Leisure and East Lothian County Cricket has lead to the next phase in club developments where a second artificial pitch and a two lane artificial net have been laid.

This is not the end of cricket aspirations for Tranet CC however. In 2017 there are plans in place for a combined side to compete in the East of Scotland Divisions with local neighbours Preston Village. Plans have now notched up for a sports pavilion to be erected. If you want to get involved there is no better time.

01 Apr 2016 : European Club Championship 2016
European Club Championship 2016

Good news reaches us that Tranent CC have successfully applied to compete in the inaugural European Cricket Club Championship. Based in Copenhagen later this Summer Tranent will play sides from Nederlands, Switzerland, Denmark and South Africa.

Dissapointingly the competition competition will run in June which will clash with existing league and cup fixtures. Our management committee have requested that the league games are voided and all cup games are postponed until our club returns. Alternatively it was suggested that these games could be decided by Dice Cricket if that was acceptable to opposition Club Captains.

Club President, Amjad Shaikh, confirmed his delight at the news as a fantastic opportunity to promote the game and suggested that perhaps the European Cricket Council should look at forming a European Champions League in the near future to encourage more clubs in their ambition to appear on television. Amjad noted that he looked forward to seeing reports of progress on Reporting Scotland and Scotland Today.
