Mazars Grange have been handed a boost ahead of tomorrow’s Scottish Cup final with the news that George Munsey is available to play.
Scotland batsman Munsey is currently down south with English county side Northants on trial and has impressed there.
However, he was due to fly north today and all being well will be in the Grange XI for the showpiece event at Stirling County’s New Williamfield ground against Arbroath.
Munsey’s availability is a big plus for Grange skipper Andrew Brock while all-rounder Tom Sole will have a fitness test today to determine whether he will play.
Teenager Sole has been struggling with a hamstring problem, but given that he would bat in the top six and bowl his allotted overs if fit he will be doing everything he can to get out on the pitch.
Grange go into the match looking to win the tournament for the third time in a row and Brock said: “To be part of a team who had done that would be very special.
“I have been really pleased with the way that George Munsey has played this year and if he goes on and earns a contract down south and this is his last game for the club then we want to make sure he goes out in style. It is all set-up for a great encounter because I think that ourselves and Arbroath both try and play cricket the right way and are the two in-form teams in the country at the moment.”
Grange have so far defeated Uddingston, Prestwick, Stoneywood-Dyce and Carlton.
