Legends of shires – Brian Scott
Brian A Scott
At the 2006/07 Shires Premiers dinner Brian Scott was inducted into the very exclusive Legend of Shires Club. Approaching the end of the 2008/09 season Brian has passed 3000 club runs and 1000 club wickets at an average of 19.71 in the Shires competition. Brian is now within touching distance of the all time Lane Cove Shires record of 1011 held by Lane Cove’s original Legend of Shires John Dettmann.
Brian is an exemplory Lane Cove clubman as well as being a valuable player and mentor to young players. Never one to shy away from a challenge, Scotty has always managed to find a way to get the crucial breakthrough, whether through the blistering pace of his youth, the unending line and length he possesses now or the passion and fire in which there is no doubt he will maintain until the end of his stellar career.
But Brian has been more to Lane Cove, and indeed Shires cricket, than just an on-field contributor. Over the years Brian has served as President, Senior Vice President, Treasurer and he co-authored the Lane Cove History for our Club’s centenary year. He is our current honorary auditor and one of only 25 Life Members honoured in our 116 year history. He is a Legend of Lane Cove, and a Legend of Shires in the true meaning.
A complete list of statistics will be published as soon as they become available.
