Hi I got hooked on cricket in that glorious summer of 2005 watching Freddie break the stumps out the ground . I'm thinking of moving to Sydney to live in December and was thinking of going to all five tests before settling done . I'm not your stereotype Scotsman I'm very proud of my British heritage my royal family and never want to split this great country . I would be traveling independently but would love to meet up with the Barmy army thought my trip and was wondering if I would be welcome
Please let e know your thought Gary

England's greatest ever captain, Douglas Jardine, was of Scottish extraction, so you will be particularly welcome.

Hi Gary

I too am a Scotsman who's been following England for a while now. My first tour was the last ashes one to Oz and made it to NZ in March. It raises a chuckle when folk hear a Scottish accent from someone wearing an England top/hat. Those last 2 trips I've managed to convince mates to travel with me but this time I'm a lone wolf. Ill be over for the Melbourne and Sydney tests.

Be prepared to join in with "Are you Scotland in disguise" when were thumping the cons 10-0!
