Who are we
Edinburgh South is a fun, friendly, and welcoming cricket club based at Inch Park adjacent to Cameron Toll shopping centre.
We run four teams in the East of Scotland Cricket Association leagues, as well as fielding various friendly sides. Our sides encompass a wide range of standards.
We also run cricket for Women and Girls and a Junior Section. Both boys and girls take part in the Junior section which starts in All Stars from around age six.
After another stellar season in 2022 our top three mens’ sides each won their respective leagues and were promoted to the next divisions. For 2023 our 1st XI plays in the ESCA Championship (the second highest league in Scottish cricket), the 2s play in ESCA Division 5, the 3s in Division 6 and our 4s will contest Division 8.
Our 1st XI also reached the final of the Cricket Scotland Challenge Cup for the first time and will return to the competition.
Our friendly and Sunday XI, Edinburgh South Mitres, play fun, social and informal matches to welcome novices, promising younger players and a few experienced hands who help guide and develop players. Many of our senior players started their South journey in this side.
During the week we compete in a number of T20 cup competitions, including the Edinburgh Parks Trophy, one of the world’s oldest knockout cricket tournaments, which we won in 2022, and the Braw Skelp round-robin tournament.
Our Women and Girls sections play in the Wee Bash Women's indoor tournaments during the winter months and during the summer season our women's team play in the East Challenger League as well as fun, social friendly games, with women and girls teams also playing in outdoor Wee Bash tournaments.
We are founder members of the Inch Park Community Sports Club (IPCSC). IPCSC is one of Scotland's most exciting sporting projects, creating excellent sports and community facilities including our amazing new clubhouse and a new cricket square. In recent years we have rapidly expanded our youth activities, coaching in seven primary schools and one secondary school in the local area, as well as running our own youth section.
There's plenty of cricket for everyone - from the highly ambitious to complete beginners. We welcome players from other clubs, those who are new in Edinburgh or those taking up the game for the first time.
