Away, away - Drumpellier for the Men, Carlton for the Women

Cricket Scotland have announced the draws for the Men's and Women's Cup competitions.

The Men's first round tie is away to Drumpellier at Langloan on Sunday 7th May. This is a repeat of our draw in 2013, when we suffered a surprise defeat following our 2012 league-winning season. More recently, the two teams met at the quarter-final stage in 2021. The initial fixture at Langloan was abandoned due to rain, with Watsonian triumphing at Myreside en route to the final that year. Drumpellier is a storied side, having won the Scottish Cup nearly as many times (4) as Watsonian has been runner-up (5).

The Women's T20 Cup takes place after the conclusion of the league, so there's a bit of a wait until we visit Carlton at Grange Loan on Sunday 6th August. Carlton are a very strong side, winners of last year's WPL, but the Women's Cup competition has seen a variety of winners to date, including our neighbours GWCGCC in 2017's inaugural competition and Northern Lights last year in their debut season.
