Joe took up cricket again when he moved to the village in 2015, last time he played was in school. He mainly rowed in Cambridge and followed rugby but his love of sport and wanting to get more involved in the local community led him to the cricket club. Over a very short time (and a lot hard work) Joe has become a very good and effective leg-spinner in 1st XI Cricket. Joe uses his excellent creative skills to help the club in many ways, including helping design the new pavilion and creating the website.

He has managed a number of our Junior sides and currently Captain's our 2nd XI, where we always have a number of juniors getting a taste of senior cricket.

Groundsman

Alan Wright

Alan has been at the centre of the club since moving to the village in 2001. A traditional left handed opening bat he has scored many runs at the top of the order for the club and always proving difficult for the opposition to dislodge.

In his role as groundsman at the club for the last 15 years he has played a  crucial part in ensuring the club has been able to expand the amount of cricket we offer.
