Great Bromley and District Cricket Club Evening League squad

Players
Charlie Allam Member profile Charlie Allam
This fop haired lad is the son of the Chairman so plays whenever he's available! He has bags of potential and if he cuts out the 'No balls' he will turn into a very useful bowler. Can give the ball a tonk too. If a mirror does ever get fitted in the changing room, Charlie will be the primary user.
Pip Allam Member profile 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 Member profile 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 Member profile - no photo available 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.
Adam Cuthbert Member profile Adam Cuthbert
1st Team 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'
Beth Dodd Member profile - no photo available 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 Member profile 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 up bowler, even with a squashed finger. He's a very good scorer too, he gets that from his Mum.

Favourite Cricketer: James Anderson

Tom Higgins Member profile Tom Higgins
Tom had the unenviable record of being the only batsman in 2014-16 to score runs more slowly than Adam Cuthbert. Now though, after hours and hours of coaching with 'Cheetah Fast, No 9 ' batting coach Craig Perrin, Tom has bolstered his strike rate to nearly a run every 3 balls. No one works harder at their game than Tom and it is still not paying off. With bowling and batting averages getting higher and his fielding going down the Ardleigh hill, Tom is a costly addition to the club.

Favourite Cricketer: Geoffrey Boycott  

Cricket Most Resembles: Nick Compton


Bradley Mann Member profile Bradley Mann

Bradley has developed into a very useful bowler. His extra height gives him more bounce than normal. Brad comes from the Rob Wareing school of bowlers and therefore berates himself after every ball. If he chills a bit and works on his batting too he could be a top all rounder for the club. Recently got his maiden 50 for the club against Wivenhoe.

Favourite Cricketer: Stuart Broad

Cricketer Most Rese: Ben Stokes

Elliot Mann Member profile - no photo available Elliot Mann

Show pony Elliot has recently become Sunday XI captain and still refuses to give anyone else a game. Cultured slogger who is more worried about his strike rate than his batting average.

The Colchester & East Essex reject a vital part of the club and doing a great job as captain on a Sunday.

Sam Platt Member profile - no photo available 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 Member profile 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
