Scotland came out on top after a great day’s six-a-side cricket on Saturday at Goldenacre to celebrate 10 years at Heriot’s for Steve Knox.

Knox has been a mainstay in the Heriot’s team since 2006 and has been involved in Scottish cricket for many years with a number of clubs. As a result there was a good turnout of players and spectators as the domestic season came to a close with ‘The Nails’, Heriot’s Legends, the Heriot’s 2012 Scottish Cup winners, Grange, Scotland, Penicuik, Stoneywood-Dyce and Cumberland playing in the event.

Fittingly the Heriot’s 2012 Scottish Cup final winning team which Knox was playing for made it through to the final against Scotland.

The former – featuring the likes of Keith Morton, Kevin McLaren and David Ross alongside Knox – batted first in that final and they made 75 runs, Ross making 25 not out.

However, Scotland – with 
Heriot’s own Sean Weeraratna, Scotland captain Preston Mommsen, former skipper Craig Wright and others – were too strong. Watsonians’ Dewald Nel hit 29 not out as they claimed victory.

Knox said: “It was a cracking day and the turn out as really good, a nice way to end the season.”
