Fair play to Methlick CC

Methlick Cricket Club have been named as the winners of the Fair Play award for Grade 1 in 2013.

Club captain Stuart Anderson described it as a “fantastic achievement”.

He added: “I thank all the players involved for making this possible.

“I also would like to thank the groundstaff and the teas assistants as I think it is the whole ‘Methlick experience’ that other clubs have voted for.

“As this award often goes as a consolation prize to a team getting relegated, this is a great honour for the club.”

The club is hosting its annual sporting dinner this Saturday in the Beaton Hall when First Minister Alex Salmond will be guest speaker.

It will be hosted by club president The Marquis of Aberdeen and Temair and is at 6.30 for 7pm.
