Binfield Cricket Club Friendly XI squad

Friendly XI

Captain : Chris Jones

Babysitter of drunkards! Lord of Designated Daves and Sunday Skipper. Chris is the resident Saffa-Kenyan.

Thinks he is an All-rounder but can neither bat nor bowl. Thinking about specialising as a Fielder, but cannot catch a ball. He is keen as mustard.

Vice Captain : Stephen Andrews

Weird bowling action seems to take wickets much to the bemusement of the players around me. Often useless batsmen trying to get better.

Sunday XI Vice-Captain

Players
Andy Bryant
Following a stunning bowling debut and known for his explosive acceleration whilst batting -has penciled in 2018 to step up to take the vacant all rounder position.. for the new 4th team. Currently celebrating longest period of time officially non-injured. Polite barman.
Chris Bullett

The Kiwi of the club aka Le Bullet.

Loves Rugby, hates cricket and thinks soccer is a silly sport played by wannabe models/TV presenters.

Bowls with accuracy straight to the batsman's head on the full. Loves to hit a six but settles for fours.

 

Gary Chippendale
Club Treasurer. Has the ability to stop the ball with his shins and feel no pain! Hits the ball to parts of the ground when it should be physically impossible! General all round good egg.
Paul Edgington

Groundsman;
Junior Coach; 
Loves a six! Part time bowler;
Deceptively agile in the slip cordon not so in the outfield!;
Often last to leave the bar;

2017 2nd XI Captain 

Ian Goddard
Used to be able to bat now concentrate on my bowling, often found tidying the pavilion or moaning at people, I do like a bonfire
Will Guest
Moved down from the North and the best thing I can say about my cricket skills is that I'm committed. Specialist Sunday player now moving into the league scene
David Harris
Aiming to finally hit double figures in my second season!!
Tony Hesketh

Trying to see out my twilight years playing a bit of cricket and a few beers for afters.

Alistair Higginson
Top order RHB, recent career move into wicket keeping.  Prolific run scorer at school and District level, and consistently outperforms his father in everything (except cover drives). Agrees with his grandfather that he is a classic example of talent skipping a generation.
Richard Higginson
Top order RHB, Saturdays, and other games if the away ground has a nice pub. Firmly believes that shirts should be tucked in and made of cotton not polyester, slogging is rude and inelegant, and helmets are for horse riding.  Famous for having introduced the off drive to Binfield CC.
Bob Hughes
A bit slow in the field, can't throw, can't catch, can't bat. Take the occasional wicket
Dan Humphrey

14

Top order batsman and useful medium pace bowler when needed.

Neil Jones
Last of his kind, a Pinch Hitter. Swing bowler transforming into an off-spinner.
Bob Khanna
I'm a Cosmetic, reconstructive Dento-facial surgeon-so very useful if any of the lads 'kops' one in the chops!!
and love the game...and am most impressed with BCC's  friendly attitude to this great sport!!been living in Binfield for 23 years now!!!
Chris Morgan

Joined the club in 2016, top order bat and specialist indoor bowler!

Been known to struggle when given a shot of navy rum....

Tim Vines
