Great Bromley and District Cricket Club Evening League squad

Evening League

Captain : Elliot Mann

Nearly Mann Elliot is nearly 5 feet tall. He nearly kept us in Division 5 last season with his nearly match winning batting. Nearly.
Players
Charlie Allam

Laid back Charlie is taking on a new role this year. He's tried his arm as a bowler and a batsman, now he's a wicketkeper. Make of that what you will!

 

 

Pip Allam
The Chairman is an infrequent palyer these days preffering to watch his boys play or do up a barn or go on holiday or... It's a shame really but at least the new changing rooms are safe from his flying bat.
Adam Bird
Gorgeous Adam, as he calls himself is a flambouyant batsman for the 2 or 3 overs he normally survives. This Pringle loving lad is a decent bowler too when he sets his mind to it and he is also the team comedian. Never leave your phone unattended!
Jessica Bird
Essex Bird, as she is now known spends most of her summer weeks touring the country playing for Essex ladies. If you don't believe me there are 14,600 pictures on her Dad Pauls facebook page. Jess is a fine batsman and gun fielder unlike her brother.
James Carver-Hardy
James is a promising young all-rounder, His Dad Dave has been promising James will be a world beater for a few seasons now. In the real world James has progressed nicely and we look forward to his contributions in 2018 but only on a Sunday!
Adam Cuthbert
1st XI Vice-Captain Adam is a mainstay of the club, playing Saturdays, Sundays, Wednesdays and any other day there is Cricket on. Despite this his run rate has never risen past the 'dull' setting, batsman at the other end run themselves out in order to not have to watch him! Never-the-less he is a much loved figure and is very good at collecting match fees. Loves a Cruise ans an egg sandwich.
Beth Dodd
Another of the Bromley girls to have been selected to play at Essex, Beth hasn't been able to get many games at home this year. Someone tells me she's a batsman now? who'd have thought? Like her brother Tom, she eats, sleeps and dreams of Cricket and has bags of talent and enthusiasm. Always polite too!
Tom Dodd

'The Fringe' as he loves to be called is always at the club. I think he might live there? Another of the conveyor belt of young talent that Pip and co have nurtured, Tom is an accurate seam bowler. He's a very good scorer too, he gets that from his Mum.

Favourite Cricketer: James Anderson

Ed Fairley
Big 'Ed' Ed has become a regular face in the Sunday XI. If Ed could bowl every over and bat against every ball he would. H'ed be an amazing Captain too, infact there is nothing Ed isn't brilliant at, apart from................................
Tom Higgins

He used to be a shy boy but now he downs pints like Nick eats pies!

He is a member of the Geoff Boycott appreciation society and bats accordingly. He falls over a lot in the field, sometimes near the ball.

Liam Holyman
Slimline Liam is now a key member of the first 11. Not as loud but far more talented than his Dad, Liam is another of the teams all rounders. His leg spin can de devestating on its day although we are still waiting for that day this year! With over 500 runs in 2014, Liam's now settled into the no4 role. He also likes to help his dad with captaincy choices such as 'Why am I not bowling yet?'
Nick Holyman

Nick Who?

Achievements - Relegation 2017.

Ankush Jagota
Ankush is a new member to the club recruited by Adam. Ankush is best known round the club as Bhushan. However Ankush has been a great addition to the club. He has fitted into Bromley ways very quickly with learning that kit goes flying when you get out. On his good days, he is excellent, on his bad days, he's asleep
Richard Lawson
Richard is as useful off the pitch as on it. His incredible hard work over the winter of 14/15 has seen the club transformed into a modern facility. Ok no-one is now alowed to sit down or take kit into the changing rooms but it looks lovely anyway! Richard is an elegant left handed batsman who loves a straight drive, usually aerial. He is a speciallist slip fielder too and never gets flustered... unless there's a football mark on his walls!
Bradley Mann

Bradley (High Tower) Mann is the complete opposite of his brother, who's name escapes me,Brad is a modest, faithful and pleasant human being who can generate a fair pace when bowling but watch out for that (not obvious at all) slower ball

Favourite Cricketer: Stuart Broad

Cricketer Most Rese: Ben Stokes

Sam Platt
Ever present on a Sunday, non existant on a Saturday, Sam has rekindled his love for cricket by smashing old men all round the park to great effect. His occasional bowling may make the odd appearance too but only on a Sunday!
Codie Simpson

Codie is a great person to have around the club. All anyone can say about Codie's batting is that it is very unorthodox. Codie has always been the lesser Simpson. With his Brother Kye and his dad having played for the club we can see we got the short straw, I would even put Homa above Codie for brains.

Favourite Cricketer: Wayne Rooney

Cricketer Most Resembles: Shikhar Dhawan

Olly Wright
Son of Colts manager and club legend Did, he is right handed but unsure if he is a bowler/batsman or batsman/bowler or maybe wicketkeeper? one thing he isnt is a fielder! He possess a sharp wit but missed the majority of the 2012 season due to commitments in his bedroom.
