Stirling County Cricket Club are delighted to announce that we have secured the services of Brandon McMullen again as our Overseas Player for the 2019 season!
As you are all aware, Brandon contributed an immense amount to Stirling County Cricket Club during the 2018 season, both on and off the field. On the field, Brandon was one of our consistent performers with both bat and ball and was a big influenced on the Men's 1st XI's excellent season. Off it, Brandon supported our Junior’s development by coaching on Friday evenings as well as supporting our Development XI teams over the whole season.
We are thrilled that we can now confirm that Brandon will be returning to New Williamfield for the 2019 season, and look forward to welcoming him back in the next few months.
C’mon the Doggies!
