Meet your Sports Chair

Callum Sibley 

My name is Callum Sibley I am 22 years old from Edinburgh and have now been the SSS chair of cricket for my now 3rd in a row, I am a recent  Sports and Recreation Management Student graduate from the University of Edinburgh.

I have been involved in cricket since I was 10 years old when I joined Carlton Cricket Club one of the most successful clubs in Scotland and based in Edinburgh where I now coach of all age groups and play in the 2XI team.

The most enjoyable aspect of cricket is that because it takes longer than most sports it allows you to spend time with your teammates that is often lost in many other sports.

A highlight of my cricketing career so far is my first trip to Cambridge with Scottish Student Sport team. On the final day we were struggling but managed to turn the game around with two fantastic centuries from our senior players – allowing us to beat the Irish and win the trophy for the first time in several years.
