Richard  Hiscocks Member profile

Captain : Richard Hiscocks

A better bowler than Greig Thomson
Simon  Knight Member profile

Vice Captain : 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)
Greig Thomson Member profile

The Millerman 'greatest living bowler' : 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

Steve Challis Member profile 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
Nat Hiscocks Member profile Nat Hiscocks
Grieg Thomson's personal bowling coach
Phil Ient Member profile 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

I'm only doing this until we can play football again.....

Andrew Mellington Member profile 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
Adam  Strudwick  Member profile Adam Strudwick
Fluid batsman (usually G&T)
Decidedly medium pace with the ball. 
Impatient. 
Little or no defensive game.
Genuinely believes he can smash every ball into next week; timing is for watchmakers and cake bakers. 
The bookies calculate his chances of
making a not-out appearance as "slim to none", even when coming in at 9. 

Accolades/Accreditations to date:
- Hat-trick of ducks
- Golden duck
- Bungling the scorebook
Dave  Strudwick Member profile Dave Strudwick
Probably conceived around the same time as the VC10 and some say should retire from service in 2013 like the VC10. 
Claims to have the best bowling stats - 5 wicket maiden, but also the worst - 26 runs off an over.  This level of consistency is par for the Millermen.
Chris Yeldham Member profile 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.
