Great Bromley & District Cricket Club Saturday 1st XI squad

Currently play in Division 5 of the Two Counties League.
Saturday 1st XI

Captain : Adam Cuthbert

1st XI Captain Adam successfully gained promotion from Division 6 at the last time of asking after 4 forlorn years under the previous captain. Adam is the 'go to' man at GBDCC. You go to him if you are looking for someone to take the p**s out of. Still bats like he's 74 years old.

Vice Captain : James Bees

James 'Beesy' Bees was our star player of 2019 with 759 runs and 26 wickets.

Beesy has a big heart and a big appetite but lives mainly on pizza which is a shame because he serves up some lovely pies most Saturdays.

Players
Charlie Allam

Multi sportsman Charlie has recently taken up boxing but insists on punching way above his weight!

with regards to his cricket, Charlie has now given up on wicketkeeping..and fielding.. and bowling..

 

 

Conrad Baker
All rounder Conrad plays 5 or 6 times a season to remind of of his ability and then buggers off again!
Tom Dodd
Sunday XI skipper Tom had a great 2019, winning the Sunday league and leading from the front. Tom scored over 100 runs in a season for the first time, in-fact he hadn't scored 100 runs in all previous seasons combined! It was great to see Tom bowling again last year and he now is proudly the slowest spin bowler in the club if not the world?
Clive Earley
Clive joined the club in 2017 and his presence has been felt up and down the league, mainly in the bar where takings have rocketed. Clive is a much loved figure who brings his expertise to the team, Clive hates football. Clive dresses like those posh country folk you see on antiques roadshow and probably doesn't have a mirror in his bedroom?
Ed Fairley

Big 'Ed' is a changed man in 2020, or so he tells us which is good because the pram and the toys can now be removed from the outfield!

Ed is a fine all-round cricketer but still nowhere near as good as he thinks he is.

Samuel Grainger
Sam is losing his hair quicker than he swings his bat, which is saying something. Sam loves a gym which is great for showing off his guns when sunbathing after getting out.
Tom Higgins
Tom is still ducking cricket just like his player profile but he'll be back and we all know it.
Nick Holyman
Former skipper Nick is now a virtual spectator at most games not needed for either bowling or batting but his wife makes nice teas so he's worth tolerating.
Ankush Jagota
Kush has taken over as the nicest bloke at the club, so nice I'm going to find it hard to rib him. Even his family are all nice. Ankush walks and runs like a drunk giraffe but that's all i've got!
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!
Harvey Robinson
Little Harv is a great addition to the adult sides over the last season or 2 and his Mum makes great teas but that has nothing to do with his selection, nothing at all!
Codie Simpson

Codie is high on life! no illegal substances whatsoever.

Codie is a fighter too, mainly with his brother.
