Scotland

Scotland sponsored by Deuchars IPA

Will Luke

Deuchars IPA, part of Caledonian Brewery, will be Scotland's shirt sponsors for next month's World Cup in the Caribbean. Most of Scotland's players have full-time jobs (read Scotland's CEO talk about this) and two of them, Ryan Watson and Gavin Hamilton, work for Deuchars.

“There are two jobs that most men most would like to do," Gavin Hamilton said, "selling great beer and playing sport at the highest level. I get to do both. Cheers!”

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Will Luke
Assistant editor Will opted against a lifetime of head-bangingly dull administration in the NHS, where he had served for two years. In 2005 came a break at Cricinfo where he slotted right in as a ferociously enthusiastic tea drinker and maker, with a penchant for using "frankly" and "marvellous". He also runs The Corridor, a cricket blog where he can be found ranting and raving about all things - some even involving the sport. He is a great-great nephew of Sir Jack Newman, the former Wellingtonian bowler who took two wickets at 127 apiece for New Zealand.
