North of Scotland Cricket Association

 

Welcome to NoSCA 

The North of Scotland Cricket Association (NoSCA) area covers a considerable part of Scotland extending from Buckie in the East to Isle of Skye in the West and from Caithness & Orkney in the North to Fort William in the South.

NoSCA runs a range of competitions from 20 to 45 over: Senior and Reserve leagues (sponsored by Black Dog Financial Services), Senior and Reserve cups and Senior and Reserve T20. We also have two development groups for youngsters - Moray Cricket Association in the East and Highland Cricket Development Group in the West.

If you are new to the area or thinking about taking up the game, the details of all NoSCA clubs are included on the Clubs pages but if you require any further assistance please contact any member of the Executive.


 

New MCC Laws for 2018 Season

A new set of Laws of Cricket were introduced by the MCC on 1st October 2017. This is the first major revision for 17 years, but there are a number of significant changes which will affect all forms of cricket, including NoSCA from the start of the 2018 season.

We are planning to hold workshops to explain the new laws for Umpires and Players before the start of the season, but below are links to a number of PDF documents which summarise the changes.

All players have a duty to familiarise themselves with the Laws of Cricket, but it is particularly important that team Captains are fully conversant with them.

 

Forres St Lawrence CC

The NoSCA Executive committee was deeply shocked and disappointed by the admission that Forres St Lawrence fielded two players under false names in the Cricket Scotland Challenge Trophy first round match versus Leith FAB in Edinburgh on 20th May 2018.

This matter, along with their expulsion from the competition, was discussed at our regular meeting on Monday 20th August.

Following on-going discussions with our National Governing Body (NGB), I can now confirm that Cricket Scotland has issued a charge of ‘bringing the game into disrepute’ against Forres St Lawrence CC and are in the process of convening a Disciplinary Panel Committee to ‘progress’ the matter.

Until our NGB (organisers of the competition) has concluded its own disciplinary process and delivered their findings it would be inappropriate for NoSCA to take any action or make any other statement on this matter.
