In a true display of a quest for excellence, Cricket at The Scots College has experienced new heights this season with ten boys being selected in their respective age groups to represent in the Metropolitan Cricket NSW Academy squads.
Two of Scots’ outstanding fast bowlers, Jameson Coutts and Tom Skelly, recently earned a place in the prestigious NSW Under 19s squad, which, only last season had current Australian and NSW Fast bowler, Patrick Cummins amongst its players. Both boys had great seasons with The Scots College.
The selections are particularly impressive as both quicks are only 17 years of age and consequently have a chance at two seasons in the squad. Year 10 student, Henry Thornton had an impressive season as an opening batsman in the 1st XI, resulting in the NSW Academy selectors rewarding his clear talent with a position in the Under 16s squad. Henry has another two seasons at the College and is an integral part of the 1st XI squad.
Outstanding cricketers Oliver Mills, William Simpson, William Lawrance and Nicholas Crowley were all chosen for the Under 15s Metropolitan Cricket NSW Academy at the recent selection trials.
Additionally the Under 13s squad boasts some remarkable Scots talent in William Todd, Max Patterson and Zack Hersov all coming from good seasons in their first season of Senior Cricket at the College and thoroughly deserve their positions in the representative arena.
Congratulations should also go to the other Scots cricketers who were nominated for selection but unfortunately missed out on spots in the final squads. All had good seasons representing the College and should be proud of their achievements.
