Former 1st XI opening bowler and (for one season) Club Captain; 1,000 wickets, and more than 7,000 runs...mostly from the 20th century!; current holder of the Club record number of not out innings (for batsmen with more than 3,000 runs...).
Probably the first player to appear for Saturday 1s, 2s, 3s, 4s & 5s in the league; also the first to play for 1s, 2s, 3s, 4s, 5s & 6s, after turning out in the very first 6th XI fixture for the Club in 2018.
Still bowling, but no longer searching for the perfect outswinger.
Now full-time Coach.

My active Old Parks' career, which started in 1976, is mostly pre-website, in spite of the valiant efforts of our Club Archivists.
I can lay claim to a cricketing connection stretching back to the 1920s. In my second game for the Club, in 1976, I had the privilege of playing with Doug Kesby, who was still bowling ramrod straight in his late 60s, after 50 seasons with the Old Parks.
