Meet the Team
Alan has cemented his place as scorer, by being altogether better at it than anyone else. Happy to play an invaluable supporting role as web editor, cameraman and gallantly gave up his place in the team against East Kilbride in 2010, allowing us to get within a sniff of victory…but still lose.
Is he a bowler or is he a batsman? Time will tell, but when he's at the crease there are few players in the squad whose eyes light up quite so brightly. While his excitement is laudable, a steady hand on the tiller next season should be rewarded with more runs.
Is sure to play a greater role in future club affairs.
Jack is the main driving force behind the club. Like all wicketkeepers (he claims to be the tallest in world cricket), the boy likes to talk and resultantly often courts controversy.
Happiest behind the stumps but tried to refashion himself as a bowler in 2011, with mixed results. Has taken some useful catches and was Tour Player of 2010.

TV big shot, Peter Mellis, was the leading runs-scorer last season in probably his best year for the club. Back-to-back half centuries were just contribution to his continued reliability on and off the field.
Boasts a range of stylish shots which regularly reach the boundary, which is just as well given his fitness level and unwillingness to scramble after ones and twos.
He has more bats than an Indonesian cave that has…eh…lots of bats in it and achieved legendary status in 2011 with the Clydesdale bar staff.

After an injury-ravaged 2009, this deceptively languid bowler recovered form and fitness to take his place again as the most economical and reliable bowler in the team. Recognised by the skipper at the end of season awards last year for his considerable efforts since the formation of the club, Colin was actually most pleased with his score of 4* v WoS, bringing his average above 1, for the first time.
