Recently appointed Marketing Manager with Cricket Scotland (and formerly a development officer with the organization), Craig has captained the side since 2002. Now firmly established at the helm, he was the outstanding player of Scotland’s initial season in the National Cricket League alongside English County sides in the 2003 season. An all-rounder in the true sense of the word, he played grade cricket in Australia – where as a player/coach he guided his club to back-to-back premiership titles - in an effort to improve his game. That experience, added to his ability and capacity to work on his game, is shown in the maturity he brings to his roles in the side.
