Buckie CC Location

Buckie is a fishing town of about 9,000 people located at the centre of the Moray Coast approximately half way between Aberdeen and Inverness.

From Aberdeen follow the A96 north towards Inverness and 3 miles west of Keith turn right over the Enzie Braes (signposted Buckie). Once over the Braes turn right again and after the short drive of 3 miles eastwards you will see Buckie on your nearside towards the sea.

From Inverness, leave the A96 at Fochabers following the coast road towards Fraserburgh. Stay on that road and you will join the traffic from Keith at the foot of the Enzie Braes.

To find the cricket ground, carry on past the distillery at Inchgower and take the next junction to your left by the petrol stations. As you enter the 30mph area, passing by a large Old Folks Home, you will see Linzee Gordon Park on your left. Entrance to the ground is via a road immediately prior to the Park that takes you up towards our pavilion and the Cricket gate.

Ignore the park and you will end up in the town centre where you will find a variety of shops.

Cricket has been played in the North of Scotland for many years and the North of Scotland Cricket Association was instituted in 1893 and today has both Senior and Reserve Leagues. The Association, as are its Clubs, is affiliated to the Scottish Cricket Union and all players are strictly amateurs

Over recent years the Association League has been sponsored by The Macallan, The Malt Whisky whilst the Knock-Out Cup competition is currently unsponsored.

The Senior League comprises of 12 teams as shown in the accompanying map (2 teams in Inverness). Each game is of 90 overs duration and is played on a win or lose basis. Points are awarded accordingly with 20 for a win and bonus points being awarded to the losing team on the scale of 1 point per odd wickets and an extra point for bowling a team out and 1 point per 25 runs between 75 and 175, allowing five points for batting and six for bowling. A game abandoned during the first innings is classed as void whilst in the second innings teams are awarded 5 points each plus their respective bonus points. The championship is decided on a percentage basis thus alleviating the need to replay postponed matches.

The Reserve League is played the same scoring system, but the games are only over 80 overs.
