Fulton Flyers – Scottish Champions
Congratulations to the The Fulton Flyers who have recently been crowned champions of Scotland in this summers Last Man Standing cricket competition.
A closely-fought final against Carlton that stretched into the final over at the Inch Park venue in Edinburgh, before one of The Flyers co-captains Mo Ali hit the winning runs to start the celebrations and bring the trophy home to Glasgow.
The win also means a guaranteed spot, and a chance for the Fulton Flyers to represent Scotland, in the LMS World Championship which is being staged in Cape Town, South Africa in December 2017.
A big thanks must go to the Fulton Flyer’s manager Mike Stanger for making the first season such a success, and off course to all the players at Clydesdale Cricket Club that contributed through out.
Results on route to the final.
