SMC Boys Instrumental in Scottish U15 Cricket Victory

Posted on 08th Sep 2014 in Stewart's Melville College, Sport, International Honours

Congratulations to Stewart's Melville College boys Andrew Appleton and Eric McIntosh (S4) who were both selected to play for U15 Scotland in the final of the ECB Cup against Gloucestershire. Scotland reached 177 but Gloucestershire responded well and needed only 20 runs from the last 10 overs, then a mere seven off the last five overs with three wickets remaining. Amazingly they failed to get the final two runs off the last over and Scotland emerged winners by the margin of one run. Both Andrew and Eric were instrumental in restricting their opponents with tight bowling as pressure began to mount in the second half of the innings.

A famous Scottish victory to be savoured!
