Matching Green Cricket Club Matching Green Cricket Week XI squad

Matching Green Cricket Week XI

Captain : Martin Figg

Right Hand Bat and occassional leg spinner. Stylish and strong, when set this opening batsman can make the game look easy. A member of the elite Matching Centurion Club and hardworking operative of the grounds staff. Previous 2nd XI Captain. NOW GRACEFULLY RETIRED!
Junior Bibby
One of the most committed members of the MGCC 1st XI, always plays with a great deal of passion! Most probably the noisiest fielder in the HECL, with cries of "It's in the air lads" as another six flies into The Chequers off Lordy's bowling. His bowling is sometimes un-playable in overcast conditions when the Bibster gets into full swing, and it wouldnt be the same without a few extended follow-throughs and stares at the batsman.
Lived up to his potential as Matching Green's Viv Richards.
Graeme Bowerman
Very Ginger. Keen to ensure fun is also had whilst performing well! Mainly an effective, if not elegant batsman, who can bowl when required.
Now unable to claim being the hairiest man at MGCC, he is happy to settle with being the token "ginga" within the ranks. Long time Batchelor Graeme finally shook of the cruel gay jibes when he eventally married his sweetheart Vanessa in 2009.
Paul Dawson
New recruit for 2011. Unknown talent. Says he does a bit. Let's see!....Err League Champs !!!!! Nuff said lol x
Tom Figg
Tom, eldest of the Figg brothers, is a hard hitting batsman who has played for The Green since the age of 11 when the Russell Colts Dynasty was forming. Along with Hobbsie, was the first product to represent the 1st XI after being under the tutoridge of Sir Russell.
Jason Green
Matching's very own England International having represented our country in over 50 indoor cricket international matches.

Gay and proud lol......
Simon Hartnell
Simon has been cover driving decent balls for 4 runs through the covers for as long as he can remember, and bowling full tosses for even longer. Known as Lordy.

Any adorring fans can usually find Simon completing a few laps of the Clock Tower rounderbout in Harlow at 1:37pm before deciding it's time to leave for Cricket on the Green, but he is happy to stop to sign autographs. Likes a curry
Rob Jones
Local lad Corporal Jones doesn't panic. Opening bowler and Indoor League 1st team captain.
Harry Lees

Often mistaken as a limp wristed man (i.e. Greeny) due to his excessive pink clothing but can counter with most catches in 2013. Spends most of time telling the boys to love thy neighbour. 

"A true batsman should in most of his strokes tell the truth about himself." - Sir Neville Cardus
James Malyon
Local lad joined in 2010. Looks a great prospect. Can bat all day and then bamboozle batsmen with crafted off spin.
Martin Ormondroyd
Martin, another one of our clubs number crunchers, is a life long MGCC member. Having seen his more than useful left arm pace deteriorate over the last few years, has has tuned his batting to become a solid member of any batting line-up, and holds a few spectacular catches each year!
Garrick Ponte
Dr Doolittle all the way from South Africa. Now resident with his chums in The Chequers. Hope to see more of him on the cricket field in 2011.
Peter Stiles
Bowls some useful inswingers when on form, however, this is no place for his cricket ability. Pete made his name on The Green after having his head shaved, at 12am by Skipper Spider in the Pavillion, into a perfectly styled mullett. The Legend lives on...
Jonathan Taylor
A few seasons under the belt for Matching. Easley one of the best cricketers for the green with outstanding ability with the bat ball and in the field!!! Just don't want to show the other players up so chuck a few down the leg side and get a few ducks!!! Come on the green MGF MGF MGF!!!
Simon Wasley

Pinch Hitting Late Order Bat
