Kyle is a very welcoming, determined and passionate person. He has a patriotism towards Scottish cricket with a goal to see the nation’s players achieve ICC full member status. Kyle was born in Aberdeen and went to Aberdeen Grammar school and starting his cricket at Inverurie & Stoneywood Dyce CC. Kyle followed his father and two elder brothers into cricket where the 3 brothers all went through the Cricket Scotland age group system. Kyle spent 14 years on the county circuit with stints at Durham and Northmaptonshire CCC and is currently full time with Cricket Scotland where he is the national captain. At a young age he was seen to have leadership qualities and throughout his career Kyle has captained at junior level into senior cricket for Scotland, Caley Highlanders, Durham, Northants and including a franchise tournament in Nepal with Pokhara Rhinos.
Kyle has had his eye on developing himself for life after cricket. He has spent the last 2 and a half years studying to achieve his ECB level 4 master coach qualification through Gloucestershire University, which he has now completed. With his studying now finished his attention turns fully back to his own cricket and captaincy role with the national team and his work developing the Scottish Cricketers Association. When away from national duties, he shares his coaching commitments with Benwell Hill CC where he is the director of cricket.
In 2017 Kyle was elected onto the first ever board when the SCA was formed and not long after that he was voted onto the ICC players committee which he still currently sits on.
