Cricket: Scotland Womens Tour for Strachan

6 11 2012

Dumfries cricketer Kirsty Strachan is excited about an invitation to play in an international tournament in Dubai next year.

Kirsty, who plays for the Dumfries CC Women’s team, has been picked in a Scotland Womens Development squad to play in an MCC invitational tournament in Dubai in February.

She, along with the rest of the squad, is hard at work fundraising to help raise £15,000, which will enable the Scotland side to compete, with the prospect of matches against leading English counties such as Lancashire and Durham, along with Wales and an MCC side.

“It is a great opportunity for the players and for the Womens’ game in Scotland. So the team would welcome any sponsors and supporters for the side and players who can help make the trip happen.” Fundraising is being co-ordinated online through

Although the squad will predominately be under 19, four over-age players are able to participate and will offer guidance as the next generation of players gain valuable experience in a new environment for most of them. [Cricket Scotland: Scotland Wildcats Development Squad to UAE]
