I had thought Donald Ford had played more times for Scotland at cricket so thanks for clarifying and giving the link to your blog.
A bit more on Donald’s one appearance for Scotland. 1980 was the first year Scotland were included in the Benson & Hedges Cup playing against the English Counties. Donald was in a 15-man squad that travelled to Worcester having accepted the county club’s invitation to the Scots to play two warm-up games on Saturday 26 April (55 overs per side and under B&H rules) and on Sunday 27 April (40 overs a side). As you say, Donald played in the second match. He batted at 4 and scored 7 before being caught by West Indian Test fast bowler Vanburn Holder off the bowling of Paul Pridgeon. Scotland did pretty well but bad light did not help them batting second and they lost by 80 runs.
It was a different era with other footballer/cricketers on the field that day apart from Donald.
Paul Pridgeon (the bowler that “got” Donald) was a centre half at Stourbridge and was in the team that got to the Welsh Cup Final in 1973/74 eventually losing to Cardiff City in the two-leg final but after disposing of both Swansea and Wrexham away from home.
Ted Hemsley was a left back who played around 500 league games for Shrewsbury Town, Sheffield United and Doncaster Rovers.
Phil Neale played for both Lincoln City and Scunthorpe United
John Inchmore was a good non-league footballer and played against Scotland in the 1972 Junior International when England and Scotland drew 2:2 with Donald's soon-to-be-team mate Rab Prentice scoring one of the Scotland goals.
As footballers Paul Pridgeon and Ted Hemsley can both claim to have played cricket and football at the same ground as Stourbridge and Sheffield United (at that time) were shared football/cricket grounds.
