Cricket Scotland Celebrate #choosecricket Winners

07 Jul

Cricket Scotland were pleased to host the 5 winners from the `Love Cricket #choosecricket` Video Competition at the Scotland v Afghanistan ODI at the Grange in Edinburgh on Wednesday 6th July. 

The `Love Cricket #choosecricket` Competition was a social media competition where clubs, schools and individuals were asked to make a 30 second video outlining why they love cricket! Up for grabs was £500 worth of Cricket Factory equipment for the top 5 entries.  

The competition was held to celebrate the ICC Best Overall Development Programme Award that Cricket Scotland received last month. Cricket Scotland decided to reinvest the award into equipment for schools and clubs to win as part of this competition. This was a great way to thank our huge number of clubs, schools and volunteers for all they contribute to the game, and also get people talking about and sharing what it is we love about this fantastic sport. 

The competition winners, and a link to their videos were:

-          Hazlehead Academy

-          SMRH CC

-          Dumfries CC  

-          Gala CC 

-          Livingston CC 

Cricket Scotland Head of Participation Ian Sandbrook said: “We want to congratulate all the winners in the Love Cricket #choosecricket Competition. The 5 winning entries were all outstanding and really demonstrated the things we love about the game. I also want to thank all those that took the time to enter the competition. The standard was very high and it was a tough job picking our 5 winners! We hope to do more promotions like this in the future and I encourage clubs to continue to push positive messages about our game.”
