Cricket Scotland has announced a new campaign, #Beanies4BrainTumours, with the aim of raising £3,500 across the club network for the Brain Tumour Charity through purchasing charity beanies and wearing them on the first game of the season.

What is #Beanies4BrainTumours?

On the first game of the cricket season, we invite clubs to purchase customised beanies to wear in the field during their first competitive game. The beanies, designed in partnership with Brain Tumour Charity, help show your support and raise money for the Brain Tumour Charity - which is a charity very close to the heart of Cricket Scotland. Our goal is to raise £3,500 which could fund two weeks of research for one of the Brain Tumour Charity's leading brain tumour researchers to improve understanding and provide more targeted treatments.

Why is Cricket Scotland doing this?

In 2018, news of Scotland all-rounder Con de Lange’s brain tumour was made public. Since then, the community has rallied in support to raise vital funds for the Brain Tumour Charity. The Brain Tumour Charity is at the forefront of the fight to defeat brain tumours, making a difference every day to the lives of people with a brain tumour and their families. It funds pioneering research to increase survival, raises awareness of the symptoms and effects of brain tumours and provides support for everyone affected.

How can my club get involved?

To show your support for Con de Lange and the Brain Tumour Charity, you just need to take a look at the attached information pack, let us know how many beanies you would like to order and our team will do the rest. In addition to the beanies, we encourage clubs to hold a small fundraiser to raise additional funds. The Brain Tumour Charity will provide you with a free pack to do so which includes information on the charity, branding materials to decorate your clubhouse and fundraising ideas. If interested in holding your own fundraising event alongside #Beanies4BrainTumours, all you need to do is visit the Brain Tumour Charity's website by clicking this link: Hold Your Own Fundraising Event

It is with sadness that we announce the passing away of Brian Christie. Brian played for the Aberdeen Lads Cricket Club for a number of years in the late 70s and 80s as a wicketkeeper, captain and top order batsman progressing from the second team to the first team. Brian was one half of the duo affectionately known as the ‘gruesome twosome’ along with Mike Harvey. In the late seventies when cricket helmets were not much more than a motorbike helmet painted white, were introduced for the first time, the gruesome twosome would take it in turns to wear it whilst fielding only two feet away from the batsman. Along with helmets came new bat technologically a superior bat called ‘big bertha’ which soon became Brian’s favored bat as it was the heaviest bat produced at the time allowing him to soon become one of the hardest and furthest hitting batsman. Brian stopped playing cricket to focus and excel on his Scottish Highland Football League refereeing career and Secretary for the Aberdeenshire & District Amateur Football Association.

Brian's funeral will take place at 9:30am on Friday 21st December at the West Chapel Crematorium.

Our sincere condolences to Brian’s family and Friends.
