Having joined the club in September 1987 I played for 16 years, captaining the 3rd XI for several years. Having tried coaching adult and youth sides (and 1 year as club captain) I decided to become a full time umpire and was in the neutral pool for over 10 years. This season I will be involved by managing the Men's 2nd XI.
