BBC CC shun deadline day bid for Peter Mellis

BBC Scotland Cricket Club President, Jack McGill, has poured water on Jim White's fire after it was reported that Arsenal had made a deadline day bid for opening batsman, Peter Mellis.

Mellis, whose performances in goal during regular Monday night fives have garnered wide acclaim, was the subject of a 7m bid from the struggling north London outfit, whose recent 8-2 defeat to Manchester United was likened to the BBC's 10-wicket league defeat by Victoria.

Arsenal had been searching for a back-up for current stopper, Wojciech Szczesny.

BBC Scotland CC have dismissed the bid as "derisory".

Nothing happening at Titwood, Jim.
