Meigle Cricket Club History

From April to September cricket has been played in Meigle since 1876.
The Club plays at Victory Park at weekend afternoons and, with cars parked in the ground, picnics and barbecues are popular. Practice Nights 6pm Tuesday and Thursday.

Currently the first XI and the second team play in the Strathmore & Perthshire Union. The club was a founder member in 1929 and were second to Brechin in that inaugural season. The 1st XI is the only club never to have been relegated from the Union top flight since its inception.
With Scotland players at all levels in their history, the Club has strong village and farming support. This shows in the family names carried over many years.
