Richard Barron profile

  • Richard "The Red Barron; von Richthofen; The Maroon Baroon" Barron
  • Only available to members
  • Only available to members
  • The Red Barron, perhaps the one and only Crows player to attain a nickname before even playing a game for the Club.
    Another in a long line of South Africans to have represented the Crows, the main difference being he could actually play.
    In 2009, he had 1 innings, scored 90-odd.  

    Rich became fully integrated into the Club during the 2010 season. A regular on both Saturdays and Sundays, The Red Barron smashed the club batting record with a staggering 179 against Yateley in July 2010.Like all South African's he's a BBQ/Braaii expert - self-proclaimed. He held the highest average of all the batsmen in the 2013 Div 2 winning side and deservedly scooped the Saturday 1s batting prize accordingly.

    A shy and socially awkward man, Barron is more at home in a library or book store than at a bar or cricket club function. He only plays half of the season each year because of this, as too much social interaction brings him out in anxiety attacks. Despite this handicap he puts on a brave face and is a real inspiration.

    He Says: 'Some are born great, some achieve greatness, some have greatness thrust upon them. I'll settle for a fifty and a pint.'
