A southside school pupil made his debut at the home of British cricket when he appeared at Lords, last week.

Andrew Umeed (18) starred with Scotland Cricket XI when they beat the MCC by a single wicket.

Andrew was Scotland’s third top scorer, with a creditable 21 runs.

Andrew, a pupil at the High School of Glasgow, was praised by the school’s rector, Colin Mair, who said: “It is very 
unusual for a schoolboy to 
represent Scotland at senior level in any sport.

“We are delighted Andrew’s talent was recognised with his selection for Scotland XI and we look forward to following his cricket career with great interest.”

And more success seems on the way for the sixth-year pupil.

Andrew has just been chosen for the Warwickshire County Cricket Academy.

He was selected for the Scotland XI after notable performances un the under 19 Cricket World Cup in Dubai in February.
