June 2017 News

Andy Innes [Jnr]

Posted on Friday 23rd June 2017 by Colin Dawson

Sad news indeed from Spain about the passing of Accie stalwart, Andy Innes [Jnr] who played for several seasons in our cricket 1st XI.  Unfortunately only two seasons' records are recorded on our website as many of the score books during that era have gone "missing".

I had the honour of playing with him in the 70's and he will be missed by all that knew him.  An extract from the Herald follows -

INNES ANDREW DAVID. After a long illness, Glasgow Academical, Andy Innes (84), passed peacefully away, at his home in Mil Palmeras, Spain, on 9th June, 2017. He is survived by his wife Louise, daughters Sally, Marjorie, Kay and stepdaughter Pamela and family. May he rest in peace.

Posted on Tuesday 20th June 2017 by Colin Dawson

Glasgow Accies Cricket Section is delighted to hear the news that Bill Mann, a past 1st XI player and lifelong supprter of the section, has been awarded the CBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours announced recently.  This is well deserved and long overdue for all his work in many differing fields.

Congratulations Billy!

John Oliver selected for Scotland U19 v MCC

Posted on Wednesday 7th June 2017 by Colin Dawson

Glasgow Accies congratulates John on his selection to play for Scotland U19's v MCC this Friday, 9 June - well deserved.  We hope that the weather is kind and allows him to make his debut and gain his first cap.  I understand that the match is at Arbroath although the Cricket Scotland website gives no information at this time.

Good luck John - we're all rooting for you!
