St Michael’s Cricket Club, based at Kingholm Park, Dumfries in South West Scotland was established in its current form in 1952. As a registered charity, our current constitution states:
“St Michael’s Cricket Club aims to promote cricket as a mass participation sport and make it fun, safe and accessible for all those who wish to play cricket regardless of age, sex, or playing ability.”
St Michael’s RWS Forestry First XI currently play in the WDCU (Western District Cricket Union) Second Division while our Second XI, AC Guitars Kingholm, play in the WDCU Third Division. We also have a T20 side playing in the Dumfries Midweek League, and the John Pagan & Son Sunday XI, who offer a programme of friendly fixtures with other local clubs.

During the season senior practices are on Tuesdays and Fridays at 6.00 pm at Kingholm Park. All new players are welcome and can compete for the chance to play 100 over Saturday cricket for our main League teams or in the less demanding 80 over Sunday fixtures.
Currently St Michael’s Cricket Club subscriptions for adult players are set at £60 a year (concessions available for students, juniors, unemployed and non-playing members). For full details see our subscription page.
Since 2011 the club has made a series of concerted efforts to improve the facilities at the Kingholm Park ground.
