Andy Goram is ready to make a sensational cricketing comeback at the age of 48.
The Goalie, who famously played against the touring Aussies in 1989, has been in contact with Western Premier outfit and Scottish Cup holders Uddingston.
And the Bothwell club are ready to welcome back the left-handed batsman ten years after he last played for them.
Former Uddingston team-mate Paul Hoffmann, now the club’s groundsman, declared: “Andy has been in touch and seems keen to play.
“I’ve sent him details of our fixtures and am waiting to hear back from him.
“Andy played for us a decade ago and made a positive impact on the club and I’m sure we’d all welcome him back.
“We’d be talking about second eleven at first but, who knows, if he scored runs and picked up a few wickets he could be knocking on the door for the firsts.”
Goram, who had spells with Penicuik and West Lothian as well as Uddingston, last played cricket two years ago when he guested for Freuchie in a centenary match.
Goram, who has five cricketing caps, has recently been working as a goal-keeping coach at Hamilton Accies.
