Deuchars IPA, Edinburgh's famous beer will be the shirt sponsor of the Scotland squad during the ICC Cricket World Cup 2007 in the West Indies.

 

Scotland Vice Captain Ryan Watson and Gavin Hamilton who have just returned from Scotland's five-week pre-World Cup Tour of Dubai and Kenya both work at Deuchars.

 

here are two jobs that most men most would like to do: selling great beer and playing sport at the highest level. I get to do both

The pair have been released from work to play for their country.

 

Stephen Crawley, Managing Director of the Caledonian Brewing Company said: "We are delighted Deuchars IPA will be the shirt sponsor of Scottish Cricket team for the period of the World Cup.

 

"Even better, and probably unique in the world of sponsorship, is that two of our genuine full time employees, Ryan and Gavin, are in the starting XI.

 

"Deuchars IPA is a reigning World Champion itself so we hope the lads are inspired to do something special!"

 

Gavin Hamilton said: "There are two jobs that most men most would like to do: selling great beer and playing sport at the highest level. I get to do both. Cheers!"
