Cricketers in Gibraltar, Scotland and Jersey are doing their bit for charity over the close season.

Scottish international Ali Evans and Craig Wallace are embarking on a 672 mile cycle to raise funds for Brain Tumour Research in memory of their former colleague Con De Lange.

Con sadly died in April 2019 following a courageous battle with the disease and the pair are marking his life by cycling to places where he played including Bath, Durham and Edinburgh.

The significance of the 672 miles is that it is his cap number. Their trek is due to take place between October 2 and 9.

The pair have already raised 3,000 for Brain Tumour Research and you can find out more on the Cricket Scotland website. www.cricketscotland.com

Also getting on his bike was former Jersey Cricket skipper Peter Gough who has just completed a cycle around Britain from John O'Groats to Lands End.

He told the Jersey Sports Podcast about his motivation.

"The idea came to me at the end of 2019 when I knew I would have some time off this year and wanted to see a bit of the country.

"The five charities that myself and Ciaran Hockings raised money for were The Sanctuary Trust, Shelters Trust and Women's Refuge who all do such fantastic work and who came under tremendous pressure during lockdown.

"The fourth was Enable Jersey who give people who have become disabled and give them a helping hand. And finally Mark Saralis who recently had a stroke and he's done so much for Jersey, so it was nice to be able to give something back to help him."

Finally Gibraltar cricketer Charles Harrison is attempting to swim the 'Round the Rock' in 11 days.

He's been hard training and swam 9.3 km yesterday, and it's all in aid of the GBCOpenDay.

Well done all!
