Berkhamsted Cricket Club 2nd XI squad

2nd XI 2nd XI

Captain : Lee Mason

Vice Captain : Jamie Lewis

A gritty northerner who is so well settled in the area, after his move in 2012, the locals refer to him as Mr. Berko now.

Started life as an opener and now fulfilling a Paul Collingwood like role in the middle-order and in the field where he has anointed himself the team's one and only 'A-team' fielder.

One of the biggest contributors to the team's fines fund.
Players
Chris Debonnaire

Aggressive top order batsman not too fond of leaving or defending the ball.

Occasionally throws down medium pace.

 

Luke Frey
Luke has now quit smoking, loves trying his hand at all types of bowling and dates a supermodel.

Luke hates short bowling, any sort of fitness and ugly women.

He has settled in reasonably well in his first season in the team, highlighted by a couple of pleasing 30's. Although not a member of the team's 'A-team' fielders he is certainly one of the better fielders in the squad.
Toby Gribbin
Won the 2nd XI Player of the Year award in his first season at the club and 2015 has seen him promoted to the 1st XI.

Achieved one of his 2014 goals by purchasing a car and is still chasing another...a maiden 50. 
George Lewarne
Aggressive middle order batsman and medium pace bowler, George captains the U15s.   He also plays for West Herts Area team where  he has scored 3 fifties in last 2 seasons.  Made debut for 3rd team in 2012 
Luke O'Dair
Who said Kallis retired? Luke is the club's version of the recently retired South African great. A solid, dependable all-rounder who offers the captain a bowling option with his slow-medium pace, bats sedately in the top order and fields wherever needed.

His progress from junior great to the same level at senior level has been steady and we wait patiently to see him fully flourish.
Gareth Preedy
Gareth is the hardest worker in the team as well as its opening batter and back-up keeper. 

A left-handed batter who prefers to caress the ball, he has seen off many an opening bowler this season. In the field he is quick, with a strong arm and a safe pair of hands.
Nick Williams
Awaiting his senior debut in 2008. Nick has performed very well in the junior teams. Adept behind the stumps or opening the innings in aggressive fashion.
James Wyatt
New to the club in 2012, James is a very useful middle order batsman who is starting to become our own Michael Bevan.

Living in Egypt now, he graces us with his presence when on holiday in the town and has added some much needed experience to the team. Still fancies himself as a spinning option but has found the door well and truly closed with the return to prominence of one, Steve Dight.

The only other member of the teams 'A-team' fielding group, he is the current title holder of the handbag award.

The only man we know that owns a pair of lemon coloured chinos and is willing to admit it.
