Schools cricket – update

Tim Hart reports, “The Cricket Scotland Schools Week of Cricket culminated with the finals of the BIGBlast! on Thursday the 21st of June, at Doo’cot Park, Perth. As with all the other competitions which made up the week, the west region was healthily represented – this time by Belmont Academy (South Ayrshire), Holyrood Secondary School (Glasgow) and Wallace Hall Academy (Dumfries & Galloway). As is the intention of this S1 to S3 softball tournament, there were plenty of big hits, lots of scampering between the wickets and some outstanding efforts in the field – as all three schools enjoyed a day of cricket in the glorious sunshine.”
