Matching Green Cricket Club Matching Green 2nd XI squad

Matching Green 2nd XI

Captain : Simon Bonas

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
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.
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.
Ben Franks
Ben, and his brother Sam, joined MGCC last season after moving to The Green from Singapore. Living in England for the summer months, he will be looking to break into the 1st XI with his batting and especially 'keeping skills.
Thomas Hobbs
Opening bowler in serious decline, has now tranformed into the 1st XI's solid opening bat, forming a formidable partnership with Lordy at the top the innings! Has textbook technique and can bore the pants off anyone with his forward defences when opening up, although his shot selection is "awesome" states Matthew Hartnell.
Toby Howe
Mark & Katie Howe
Max Hunt
Fiona & Ashton Hunt
Simon Jeffery
Simon is a loyal and committed member, who's most impressive "feature" has to be his low bullett arm that can run even the quickest of runners out. With a low swoop down for the ball and in one motion the ball is at the stumps, the batsman is gone. Can hit some hefty blows with the bat once getting his eye in.
Chris Leamon
Married the delightful Heather in Feb 2005. Handy slogster and suicidal in the field.
Rob Leamon
club captain and groundsman
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.
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!
Steve Parker
Ever present 2nd teamer (only surfing in Devon gets the nod over cricket) who is improving year on year with bat and ball.
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.
Jed Scanlon
A star in the making. Has removed Biffa from the wicket-keeping role in the seconds and also opens the batting ... and bowls. No end to his talents!!
Joe Scanlon
2nd XI strike bowler at 14!
Dave Scott
Mate of Dutchy from Eastons CC
Max Smith
Jonathan & Abigail
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!!!
Matt Taylor
A peaceful relaxed calm young man
Good umpiring, scoring and tea making skills
Definate prospect for the club
Simon Wasley
Pay n Spray Bowler

Pinch Hitting Late Order Bat

General Whale
Mark Wilson
After only first setting foot on a Cricket field during the 2005 season, Mark has made huge strides and is now an integeral member of the 1st XI. His arrow type bowling has seen the end to many a class batsman. Mark considers his batting to be a work in progress...
