Dumfries’s Tom McBride has been rewarded for being the top home grown run scorer in National League Division 2, by being picked for the Western Warriors versus the East last Sunday in the Scottish Regional Series.

He was also named named as twelfth man for the three day match between Scotland Lions, the Scotland 2nd XI, and Durham County 2nd XI at Morpeth which commenced on Monday.

After a win against Leicestershire and a draw against Warwickshire the Scots are seeking to maintain an undefeated record at this level.

Dumfries Juniors v Ferguslie

The fixtures at Nunholm finished on Sunday with a junior match against Ferguslie U13s. The last home game of the season was played in sunny conditions and a fast outfield.

Ferguslie proved more effective with the bat but the Dumfries batsmen resisted in a time match to hold onto a draw for a good day of junior cricket which was spiced by a post match barbeque to round off the Nunholm season.

This weekend the Dumfries Kwik cricket team travel to Perth for the National Clubs Kwik Cricket Festival and Dumfries play a friendly at Gatehouse in the last match of the season.
