  • Proclaims to be "Old A's 'till he dies", although this assertion is dubious in the light of his cunning tactic of playing one game a season in the hope the selectors forget he's ageing and still see him as the bright young prospect he was when he captained the Under 11's and Under 15's to historic district cup victories in 1998 and 2002 respectively; thus they still stick him in the first team whenever he deigns to grace the shores of England. This is a strategy that has worked until now as his annual explosive fifty-ball 80 against balding 60-year old part-time pie-chuckers in cricket week seems to be sufficient to convince the cricketing intelligentsia of the club to overlook the fact that his beer belly is in danger of outdoing his uncle's. Is currently in Colombia selflessly aiding his beloved A's through the economic crisis by halving its tea bills. Considering whether the lack of London Pride in the Bogota CC pavillion is reason enough to pack in his ultimate life ambition of being a journalist reporting on second division Latin American football. Former known as a destructive right-handed number 6 batsman and intimidating first-change bowler. The comparisons with Andrew Flintoff don't stop there as during his sabbatical he has also had embarrassing drunken moments in the Caribbean. Have the pair ever been seen in the same room? Greatest cricketing moment: Creaming the promising young bowling quartet of Kevin Mahoney, Duncan Slaughter, Steve Greenwood and Steve Smith all around the ground for a maiden (and needless to say only) century.
