Crowthorne & Crown Wood Cricket Club Crowthorne Midweek XI squad

Crowthorne Midweek XI

Captain : Julian O'Loughlin

Joined the club in 2010 as a fast bowling all rounder and brought the key attribute of being able to smooth over the Wellington College liaison from the inside. The days of bounding in bowling snorting bouncers to Sandhurst openers are behind him and after many years of seeing the likes of Dan come in off three paces and clean up wicket after wicket, the retirement plan of bowling liquorice allsorts was born. Rarely allowed to be released in a real match, those ghastly googlies are mainly reserved for Sundays when every other avenue has been exhausted. Trying to capitalise on a decent batting season in 2016, with a ton against Arcadian Casuals and make an opening batsman role a permanent move.
But it's on the football pitch where he comes into his own. The Golden boot award has been abandoned after he won it for so many years in succession that everyone got bored. Current holder of the Golden Hoof Award too, but committed to stop hogging all the footballing trophies and let someone else have a go.

Team Manager : 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?.'
