Parish News: Club President knocked for six by a baby


Readers may recall a story some months ago, which alluded to Club President Jack McGill bowling a straight, full-length delivery, which – uniquely - was on target.

It is with great pleasure that we can now follow on from that piece and announce that after a flight from Dublin and a frantic taxi ride to the Southern General, Jack arrived four minutes before his son, Michael Hugh Stirling McGill, was brought into the world at 0858 on Friday 24 May 2013, weighing in at 8 lb 14 oz.

Lucy and Michael are both doing very well, and it will surely not be too many years before there are at least two McGills on the teamsheet...

Congratulations to Jack and Lucy from everybody at BBC Scotland CC. And Jack, may your hands be safer with the baby than they are behind the stumps!
