Scotland Senior Men's call-up
Good luck to Chris (McBride) who has been selected once more in the Scotland Men's squad this time to play in Namibia at the start of December.


Overseas Cricket
Niall (Alexander) played in the Newcastle one-day final for Wests CC on Sunday and took 2 for 33. However the wet summer down under intervened with both teams sharing the title. His two wickets can be seen on youtube below.

And a mention for Josh (Geary) who took 3 wickets in the Newcastle first grade on the Saturday.

In contrast it was smog stopped play for Adam (Malik) on his Academy Team's cricket tour to Delhi with the air quality forcing people to stay indoors and preventing the matches outside.
