James Whitehurst profile

  • James "Billy" Whitehurst
  • Only available to members
  • Only available to members
  • Whitehurst has returned to the local area following a brief trip The Orient to ‘find himself’ and ‘begin an uprising in the Chinese controlled state of Hong Kong’. Having reeked political havoc abroad, he now reeks cricketing havoc across Berkshire. A fine, attacking batsmen and one of the most mobile fielders in the team, he is another leading addition to the ones for the 2019 season.
    An active member of the club’s Alan Partridge Appreciation society, (CCWCCAPAS) he has held the positions of Chairman and Treasurer; the only person in the society’s history to hold both titles successively and simultaneously. Whitehurst is often heard shouting ‘A-Ha!’ from the square leg boundary when appealing in lieu of the more traditional ‘howzat’.
    No stranger to the media spotlight, Whitehurst was recently spotted exiting The Prince in Crowthorne saying that he’ll “be captain of the ONES by this time next year”. A well-liked and popular character around the club, with a clear disregard and disdain for ‘the system’, incumbent captain, Will Avrili, may have a battle on his hands come AGM time.
