Wicketkeeper

Squad number - 12. A knowledgeable and thoughtful cricketer who has reinvented himself as a useful wicketkeeper. The batting has deteriorated though and he needs to rediscover his top form quickly.

Batsman

Squad number - 10. Rosaneri's Ian Botham. Smashes the ball hard with the bat, but pays little attention to the coaching manual. Has now scored three centuries to demonstrate the high level he has reached. Has also developed into a tidy bowler who on his day is hard to score runs off and can also don the the wicket keeping gloves to good effect as well. Falls in and out of love with the game on an almost daily basis but did start up the Bloaterette player recruitment agency during one of his good days. (Pictured here with friend of the club Matt Dawson, World Cup winning rugby star). Awards: 2007 - Leading Run Scorer & Top Batsman

Ben Underwood  
Batsman

Squad number - 22. A solid batsman who is sound defensively, but also capable of scoring runs quickly.
