Matching Green Cricket Club Matching Green 1st XI squad

Matching Green 1st XI

Captain : Riz Akram

Charlie Bass
Left-Arm "Slinga Malinga" opening bowler for the 1stXI, can be rapid for someone of his age, and will only get quicker. Can hit a fair ball aswell when needed. His iPod can be heard a mile away from The Green, with "Umbrella Ela Ela, Ey Ey" being his famous soundtrack.
Charlie Bennett
Elaine & Andrew
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.
Sam Figg
Another graduate from the Russell International School of Cricket (RISC), Sam has proved his worth as a top order batsman with some important innings during the 2007 season and will look to increase his runs total during the 2008 seson. Can also bowl some effective little in swingers if called upon by Spider.
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
Max Hunt
Fiona & Ashton Hunt
Oliver Hutley
New junior for 2012
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
Peter Liversidge
Not often seen on The Green anymore, but a legend throughout the club renowned for his exemplary manners and huge hitting. On his day, if partnered with Lordy, would take any bowling attack in the league to pieces within minutes.
Lorcán Neville
Toni & Kevin Neville
Joe Scanlon
2nd XI strike bowler at 14!
Nick Scantlebury
Oldest of the "Scants", Nick has the impressive ability to swing the new ball in both directions. His batting can hold its own for the 1st XI aswell, and another good year for both School and Club bodes well for the future. Can always be found in The Chequers chatting up the ladies, or elaborating on his weekly excursions in his tractor.
