Tall with a round-arm slightly slingy action, Scott Boswell played for Northamptonshire while at university and in 1996 was considered promising enough to attend Dennis Lillee's MRF Pace foundation. But he failed to make his mark at Northants and was released at the end of 1998, moving to Leicestershire. He quickly became identified as more of a one-day bowler, and in 2001 played most games as the county finished runners-up in the Sunday League and the C&G final. He had been Leicestershire's champion in the C&G semi-final, cleaning up four England players in a match-winning performance. In the final, the occasion, the Lord's slope and his own sweaty palms undid him. In his second over he sent down eight wides, five of them in a row. His match figures were two overs for 23. These were among Boswell's last deliveries for the county. He played only once more, but he appeared to be a broken man and his one over in the final Sunday League game of the season went for 18 and before he hobbled off. He was released a month later and went into teaching.
