He batted generally at number three for Aberdeenshire last year and also was a useful bowler and is expected to enhance the Heriot’s line-up.

His new team-mates also know just how good a player he can be, because on a visit to Goldenacre last summer with Aberdeenshire he scored 109 and took two wickets as the away side won by 83-runs.
