Round up: Sport


Extreme unicycling
  1. Cricket:  Today sees a top of the table clash between Carton Cricket Club, based in Grange Loan and Forfarshire.  Both are unbeaten this season.  The twist is that the Forfarshire vice-captain Umair Mohammed is a dentist who lives close to the Carlton ground and trains with them.  Both teams are unbeaten this season.
  2. Chess:  The 118th Scottish Chess Championships take place between the 9th and 17th July.  As we now expect Sciennes Primary School is well represented (Captiva and Ecsher Mills, Rishi Pandya)  in the appropriate section. See here.
  3. Unicycling:  Local resident Jason Auld, who has featured on this blog before, is planning to set a world record for non-stop extreme unicycling.  See here for details.
  4. Basketball: The former Crags Sports Centre is set to become a basketball hub after the Boroughmuir Blaze Basketball Club joined forces with basketballscotland to run the premises.  As this report details there will be other uses for local residents.
