HISTORY
The Club was formed in 1970 to play regular evening cricket matches against other offices and clubs in Edinburgh, although a few matches were played prior to 1970 as part of inter-office competitions.  The Club is based around the employees of Scottish Widows PLC in Edinburgh.  The majority of the Club's home fixtures are played at the Campbell Park in Colinton, Edinburgh.

Although evening matches are the norm, the occasional afternoon matches are played and the Club's enthusiasm has extended to touring and no fewer than 7 tours have taken place.
