Preston Mommsen joins Lashings All-Stars
Preston Mommsen will be mingling with some of the world's greatest cricketers when he joins the Lashings All-Stars this week for the BREDS Cup in Jamaica.
The Scotland captain joins up with the All-Stars for a T20 tournament at Treasure Beach on the south of the island, with the opposition coming from Red Force, Westmoreland and BHC, with a House of Commons and Lord's XI also participating.
Mommsen is the latest of a series of players with connections to Scottish Cricket to play for Lashings. Gordon Greenidge, still batting and keeping wicket for Lashings into his sixties, played for Scotland in 1990, while Pakistan all-rounder Yasir Arafat has also represented both teams. Spinner Peter Such, born in Helensburgh, was a regular wicket taker for Lashings during the 2000s.
The Tour begins today (Thursday) when Lashings play a ceremonial opener against the House of Commons and Lord's XI. For more information visit www.lashings.co.uk
