Called off at 8.45am ish

ok it's windy in Nairn but not much rain, why call it off so early when both teams are a ball throw away from the venue. I went to the links at 9.30am and it's not that wet.

Poor shout Mr Gibson!!

I am currently working on a website/database for the WDCU and have been compiling scorecards of matches from the 1970s,

In one of the scorebooks, I found a match held at West of Scotland Cricket Club's ground, Hamilton Crescent on Wednesday 14th July 1976, where the Scottish Colts were playing the WDCU'S Centurions. This was a representative game for the under 21 age-group.

In the scorebook, each player is also identified by their home club. Playing for the Scottish Colts, is one M.Evans (Northern Counties). He took 5 catches in the 1st Innings and then scored 17, bowled PG Duthie (who went onto win 53 caps for Scotland), batting No.3 in the 2nd Innings. He appears to have been the wicket-keeper. He must have been a bit of a player, and for a northern player (north of Aberdeen) to be picked for the Scottish Colts, 35 years ago, he must have been also in the frame for further honours.

I checked the Cricket Scotland archive and I found him in a Scottish Colts side versus ESCA in a two day match at Doo'cot Park in Perth in 1975.
http://stats.cricketscotland.com/scotyouth/cstm9.htm
Thereafter, there seems to be no further trace of the chap.

Can anyone provide me with any further information about the chap? I seem to have a scorecard for a fixture that has not been recorded in the youth internationalist records, and 35 years later, I would like to see him get accredited for a fixture that seems to have been missed somehow.

Cheers,

Siggy

We did boost oor tans .... playing cricket in sunshine ..... how strange!!
