Spirit of Sportsmanship

There have been a couple of instances this season where clubs have been commended for showing great sportsmanship and concern for players welfare.

On Saturday a nasty collision between two West of Scotland players immediately drew the attention of the fielding Prestwick players, in particularly Mitchell Rao and Tom Fleet who both put the players welfare before any thought of the action on the field.  Thanks also should go to umpire Billy McPate who drove one of the injured players to hospital.  Colin Mair, President of West of Scotland went to great lengths to thank all involved.

Earlier in the season a Stenhousemuir player drove an injured opponent to hospital and Stenhousemuir also provided a sub fielder for the duration of the innings to their opponents, Uddingston.

Fine example of sportsmanship and commitment to player welfare and long may it continue.
