Get him to the church on time...but not if it interferes with nets

We are delighted to announce the engagement of BBC cricketer David Blane to Miriam Louise Higgins.

On holiday last week in Torridon, in the far northwest of Scotland, David, whose romantic endeavours over the last few seasons have been well documented by this club, finally realised he'd found the girl to make an honest man of him.

Dropping to one knee, with a beautiful loch in the background, David professed his dedication to, love for, and admiration of Gregor Dean, before popping the question.

Tearfully accepting, Miriam gushed, 'Yes, David, yes...but please do something about your economy rate."

I think the future Mrs Blane has given her blessing for David to be much more in attendance for the remainder of the season.

The members of the club would like to wish David and Miriam their best wishes for a long and happy life together.
