Tommy McBride takes charge v Stoneywood

Congratulations to the Cricket Section’s Thomas McBride who has been picked for the Scotland U17 Squad and has been called up for the winter training sessions in preparation for the 2009 season. This means he joins Chris Bellwood who is in the Scotland Under 19 squad.

The 1st XI players are under the watchful eye of recent Scotland captain Craig Wright who is charged with overseeing the development of the young players in Scotland’s National squads.

In the season just gone the Scotland Under 17s played in the ECB (English and Wales Cricket Board) U17 Championships for the first time and narrowly missed out on promotion. So those that get into the side will be playing against U17 opposition from the English county scene next season.

Tommy was introduced to the sport by the local council’s cricket taster sessions which take place each year and is a product of the local club’s regular Monday night junior coaching sessions. This is a deserved reward for plenty of hard work and plenty of talent.
