Captain : Richard Hester

RP Hester is a classic village cricket all rounder...can't bat or bowl! But reasonable glove work and on field leadership means he still has his Crowthorne & Crown Wood central contract. Captained the Sunday side in the famous 2011 1-wicket win at Sandhurst. Digging in for the final wicket, scoring 2 off 25 balls in determined style to help see the Crows home to win the A3095 Ashes! Elected 2012 Sunday captain by popular demand on the back of this historic victory. His electric coolbox is more than useful for post-nets beers.
He says: 'Probably more catches than runs for the club'
We say: 'Probably more wickets than runs for the club, too'

Fun Fact: A lifelong model railway enthusiast, Rich houses a scale replica of the Stockton to Darlington expressway in his conservatory. He lists his proudest achievements in his life as first, his replica railway, second, his children, and third, that run he scored a couple of seasons ago.

Vice Captain : James Carson

Plucked from obscurity in the latter part of the summer of 2009 to star in 3 victories, 2 of which he stayed around and masterminded tight run chases. His debut saw him leave the comfort of his sofa at short notice to hang around for 400 overs to score 15 runs. The stuff legends are made of. James hadn't played cricket since his Slatcher-inspired schooldays, where his only contirbution of note was making piles of grass at fine-leg to prevent boundaries. Club Treasurer Jimmy ensures that the Crows are the most fiscally efficient cricket club around with regular visits to people's homes to settle debts of 20p.

He Says: 'Do you have that 60p you owe from 17 weeks ago?.'
