Scotland announce record turnover

Will Luke

Cricket Scotland have announced a record turnover of £1,778,891, yielding a surplus of £40,121 for the 2007 calendar year.

The annual report and accounts will be tabled at the annual general meeting (AGM) of the governing body at Stirling Cricket Club on March 30. Much of the increase in turnover is the result of the staging of the inaugural offshore international in Scotland, the ODI between India and Pakistan last summer, even though not a ball was bowled because of the sodden conditions after two weeks of rain.

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.
