In 2018 Largo CC will be running an U15 team, an U13 team, an U11 team and a KwikCricket team. The U15s and U13s will play all of the Fife teams (home or away) and there will also be several friendly matches against the likes of Arbroath, Forfarshire, Perthshire, Stirling and Strathearn. The U11 team will have several matches against local sides and play in several tournaments hosted throughout Fife and beyond. Our KwikCricketers will play in approximately 6 KwikCricket tournaments in Fife and also in the Arbroath tournaments.
U13 and U15 matches will normally start at 6pm and each side will bat for 20 overs. The finish time will hopefully be about 8:30pm but can be as late as 9pm
U11 matches will normally start at 6pm (Some games will be Sunday AM) and each side will bat for 16 overs. The finish time will hopefully be about 7:45pm but can be as late as 8:30pm
