Meigle grand prize draw results
Meigle Cricket Club’s annual whist drive and grand Christmas prize draw was held in the Kinloch Memorial Hall in Tuesday last week, carrying on a tradition started in 1923.
The event raised £1425 to keep the village sports club in vibrant health going into 2018.
With new 1st XI captain Neil Wimberley unable to attend due to personal reasons, it was club president and former b at s man Bi l l Mor t o n who thanked all those turning out on an icy and cold night.
He reminded those gathered that, despite another runnersup place this season, “there was no point crying over spilt milk” given the talent in the squad and especially given the numbers of boys and girls who are part of the buoyant youth section.
The whist ladies champion was Mina Whitelaw, sister-inlaw of the late Nicol Whitelaw who played for Meigle CC, and the gents winner was John Skea.
The main prize in the draw of a flat screen television went to B Neave, with the two highly sought-after Christmas hampers going to Linda Morton, of Belmont Place, and Nicola Drummond, of Parkside.
The club hopes to r un a beetle drive in the new year and indoor cricket action will recommence at Bell’s Sports Centre in January in readiness for the season starting in April.
