1st XI 1st XI

Captain : Tom Li

Vice Captain : Sam Ledger

Sam Ledger has a massive face. He is a wicket keeping, bowling, fielding batsman who loves the offside shots. X
Steve Booth
Steven Booth is often described as "best spinner in league", although mainly by himself.

He led 4 successful campaigns as captain in the mid 00's and has moved from a bowler to a genuine all-rounder. He scored a magical 102* against Hemel for the 2nd XI in 2009 and 84* against Stevenage for the 1st XI in 2011.
David Dabare
A Left hand bat & right arm leg 'spin'. Likes to field at point but is never allowed there.
often late, often stuck at Heathrow, often on the phone
Loves the game very very much.
Peter Griffiths
Pete Griffiths has the best batting technique in the club. Keith Martin once described him as "a pleasure to watch, he is very pleasing on the eye". This is a very true comment on and off the field as Dillan Yogendra consistently loses out to Pete on the award of 'Best Looking Club Member'.
Todd Houlahan
Todd Houlahan - our resident ex-Aussie who is very handy with the bat. Joined the club back in 2006, scoring 94 on debut against Knebworth Park for the 2nd XI.
Timothy Kiek
Tim Kiek is the 2nd XI's wicketkeeping - batsman. Has plans to become the 'best keeper in club' very soon and is often making bets around when his first club 100 will be made. He captained the 2nd XI to promotion from Div. 8 in 2009. Now a part time rapper.
Chris Martin
I'm cute, i'm hot, i'm everything you're not

Chris Martin - All round good guy and long servant of the club. Bats any where in the order. Can solve a Rubik's cube in under 2 mins.
Nick Martin
Nick Martin's most memorable moment came in 2011 when he took 8 wickets and claimed a league hat-trick.
James Mason

Fast bowler and believe im quite handy with the bat.

Development Squad captain and colts coach

James McEwen
Jimmy McEwen joined the club in 2008 and soon established himself as a 2nd XI all-rounder. He bowls funny left arm medium and loves to drive the ball.

Took over the 2nd XI captaincy in 2011, leading his team to the Division 7 title in 2012. Other rolls within the club include 'Colts Coach', 'Website Technician' & threatening people with relegation to the 3rds.
He holds a level 2 coaching badge.
Adam Robbins
Adam Robbins captained the side to the Division 4 title in 2010 in his 1 season in charge of 1st XI matters. He is the teams 'Andrew Flintoff', good with both bat and ball... but generally always injured.
Alistair Sykes
Alistair joined the club in 2011 and is our resident Yorkshireman.
Scored almost all the 2nd XI runs in his debut season
Most under-used bowler in the league - 2012
Likes fishing
David Tree
Dave Tree is the 2nd XI opening bowler, often the leading wicket taker within the club with his fast inswingers. He thinks he is useful with the willow as well.

His main aims this year are to score a league 100 which will be difficult from number 10, and to recapture his bowling trophy
