David Holmes - Forever a friend of WCC

Monday 08th January 2018

A true gentleman, whose wit and camaraderie will be sadly missed by all at Woodvale CC. Thoughts and prayers to his family at this time.

4th XI for 2018!

Wednesday 22nd November 2017

We are delighted to announce that the club is entering a 4th XI for the 2018 season. This development has come about from the ‘folding’ of Newforge Cricket Club, and the result of this is that there are approx. 15 adult players joining the club. The 4th XI will take the place for Newforge 2nd XI in Junior 5 which is the same league as our 3rd XI – A couple of ‘Super Sundays’ will be on the agenda! As with all new recruits we would like to welcome Sreejesh and the...

2nd XI & 3rd XI Reports

Tuesday 07th November 2017

2nd XI - Phil Stewart The seconds had a decent season but it couldn’t really be described as any more than that. Despite finishing second in the league, unavailability hindered the chance to realistically challenge eventual league winners Carrickfergus. Of the fourteen league games scheduled this year, we won eight, lost four and had two matches washed out due to the wet weather we had towards the end of the season. After last season’s cup final defeat, we couldn’t quite rep...

1st XI - Captains Report

Wednesday 25th October 2017

2017 proved another successful season for the 1st XI as some dominant performances throughout gave us a second place finish in Section One and a T20 finals day at the Lawn. However I would suggest, as I am, that most will probably feel disappointed that we did not finish in top position of Section One. Ultimately we finished with a credible 12 wins from 18 league games. In respect of cup competition we were convincingly beaten by Premier League opponents Muckamore at the Quarter final stage of t...

Pro-less Woodvale take second spot

Sunday 24th September 2017

In an era where money is (allegedly) being thrown at any player with a modicum of talent, it is refreshing to see Pro-less Woodvale sit securely in second spot of section one of the NCU. But for a couple of silly slip ups, it could have been Premier League cricket at one of the best equipped dedicated cricket stadia in the country next season. Anyway, back to the match report. In let’s say, Moist conditions at Uprichard Park, the fixture having been swapped as Woodvale was even &lsquo...
