Players
Steve Challis
It has been said he has more blocks than a box of Lego, but once entrenched, Steve 'The Brigadier' Challis becomes the immovable object.  Makes Trevor Bailey's scoring rate look like that of Kevin Peterson and Raul 'The Wall' Dravid look like a 'Ha Ha';  it is often said of the Brigadier, that if you want to hold an end up then he is your man, especially if it is in the bar after a game
Andrew Crawford
Finding my way back into cricket and enjoying it !
Nat Hiscocks
Grieg Thomson's personal bowling coach
Richard Hiscocks
A better bowler than Greig Thomson
Phil Ient

Has two shots - a forward defensive and out

Like Southern Trains, struggles with achieving a decent line

Keeps wicket on a 1 in 3 roster

 

 

 

Simon Knight
Known as the 'Germinator', his slow left arm 'Chinamen' frequently leave batsmen rueing their shot selection.  A slow, looping left arm has given him top billing in wickets taken and a Warne like reputation (Same girth, less hair)
Steve Maynard
I'm only doing this until we can play football again.....

Andrew Mellington
Legendary middle order bat, and slow right arm bowler.  Acquires Bothamesque like powers when donning his woolly pulley won in a club raffle in the summer of '13.  Sadly the powers are not always those associated with a game of cricket
Ashley Middleton
Opening Batsman, EX-Wicket Keeper. Maniac on a Motorbike. 
Peter Murray
Incredibly versatile and talented cricketer who would command a place in most test sides in the world.
Greig Thomson
The Player formerly known as the Worst Bowler in the world.
Fields like Jonty Rhodes
Bats like Cecil Rhodes
Bowls like Zandra Rhodes
Henry Van der Walt
 cautious defensive opening bat...
Chris Yeldham
Previously a better batsman than Phil Ient. but now nursing a 50% duck ratio.
Likes to open so he can see the ball before the bowlers sober up, sadly managed to miss several last year..
Hoping to show better mettle this year by wielding an ugly bat.
