Citylets National Schools S4-6 T20 Cup

2017 winners Fettes College

Cricket Scotland are pleased to be working in conjunction with our independent schools to support the Citylets National Schools T20 Cup.

This is the premier schoolboy cricket competition in the country that sees the strongest school teams compete in the popular T20 format.

Competing schools are split into four groups with each group completing a round-robin qualifying weekend. The four group winners then progress to the semi finals and then the semi final winners will contest the final on 16th June.


Congratulations to Fettes College who won the Citylets National Schools T20 Cricket Cup final in a remarkable match against old rivals and hosts Merchiston Castle School, on Friday 16 June.

After electing to bat first, Merchiston’s star batsmen Angus Hinton and Tom McIntosh were both dismissed for ducks in the first over of the match, to the off-spin of George West the Fettes captain, who ended with 3 wickets for 12 runs off his 4 overs. With 15 year-old fast bowler David Hood also picking up three quick wickets, Merchiston found themselves 17 for 7 only for a fighting innings of 25 by Michael Grant to enable them to post a total of 78.

Though this total seemed sub-par on a good pitch, more drama ensued, with the first ball dismissals of Fettes big guns West and Rory Mather both to Charlie Fullarton in the first over of the Fettes reply. In a now very tense situation, calm and composed batting from Robert Edwards (28*) and man-of-the-match George Conner (26*) led the Fettes team to their 3rd Cup win in the last 4 years with an unbroken 3rd wicket partnership of 70, with the winning runs coming in the 14th over.

Thanks to Citylets for their sponsorship of the competition.
