Today we are back in the Andalusian region,
Harry Scott is a fine all rounder who has been improving well over the years, and as he becomes bigger and stronger with time he has begun to use his height and strength very well producing some fiery bowling performances.
He has shown many a time that he is more than capable of playing senior cricket performing well with bat and ball in such company. The questions are again set by the Junior Director of Cricket Harmit Phull (Rico)..
Rico : How old are you?
Harry ; 15 years old
Rico : At what age did you start playing cricket, and where?
Harry : I started playing at Cártama when I was 11 but was playing in the back garden with my dad and brother much earlier.
Rico : What is your first memory of cricket?
Harry : My first memory of cricket was when I went to desert springs and spent the day with the England cricket team, they treated me very well and presented me with a signed cricket ball at the end of the day.
Rico : Under normal circumstances, where and when do you practice playing cricket?
Harry : Generally in Cartama but recently I was lucky enough to practice in the indoor nets in Gibraltar which was fantastic.
Rico : Do you see yourself as a batter or bowler?
Harry : I bowl and love to bat but keep getting out with silly shots, I need to learn to construct my innings better instead of going gung ho from the start.
Rico : What, where and when do you think was your best performance to date?
Harry : 3 years ago at Cartama I took five wickets in a men’s game and also scored 46 against a touring team.
Rico : Why do you like to play cricket?
Harry : It keeps me out of mischief
Rico : What is the best thing about cricket in Spain?
Harry : If you work at your game you have a realistic chance of representing Spain.
Rico : What if anything is the most disappointing thing about cricket in Spain?
Harry : We tend to play the same teams every week in men’s cricket, I would enjoy playing more youth cricket as at times the men’s cricket can be quite punishing if your not on your game.
Rico : What’s your most memorable cricket experience in Spain?
Harry : I loved the junior tournaments which have been organized at Cártama recently I also enjoy being coached by David Young who has taught me a lot.
Rico : As a player, where would you like to see yourself in 15 years time?
Harry : It would be lovely to represent Spain but as long as I enjoy my cricket and be able to compete at a reasonable standard I will be pleased.
Rico : Who is your favourite player and why?
Harry : Jos Butler I want to be able to bat like him.
Rico : If you could have dinner tonight with any famous person in the world, who would it be and why?
Harry : Egan Stephen Dantis!!! As he makes the best curry ever.
Rico : What effect has Covid19 had on your young lives, for better and worse?
Harry : I’ve spent some valuable time with my family and I am missing cricket and football
Rico : If you had a message to all people your age during these difficult times, what would it be?
Harry ; Try not to annoy parents too much and try to remember that we are all doing our bit, this will be over soon
Thanks very much Harry, I hope it wont be too much longer before your back playing cricket at the beautiful Cartama Oval.
