Ben khalil

Adam Khan
works with Pramod
Kevin Mahoney
Slow medium right hand away swing bowler, slow right handed leg side bat! Field with enthusiasm and a lot of pain the following day. Member of the elite Grumpy Old men squad who practise what they preach and play every game like a world cup final. Very enthusiastic about the club and all it stands for.

Level 2 qualified ECB coach and member of the Sunday morning coaching fraternity.
Craig Nel
The "Sportsfan" who hails from South Africa and swears that he will take it global or die trying (and probably get loads of slaps along the way too).
Doesn't mind throwing himself around on the field and has been know to do that off the field too resulting in head injuries.
A member at Old Actonians since 1999 and a Redlands Tiger since 2012.
Alistair Slaughter
Right hand middle order bat. Versatile occasional bowler. More than occasional wicket keeper. Now starting fourth season with the club and looking to keep improving.
Best personal moment: First ton (144 vs West Harrow)
Sporting Hero: Michael Vaughan
Dominic Wallace
Joined the club in the mid-nineties as a skinny young medium-pacer (his wife has played netball here for longer still). He is now neither skinny, nor young, nor a medium-pacer, and now - rather to his surprise - finds himself opening the batting. A founder-member of the Grumpy Old Men squad, and also occasionally plays for the Old As bridge team, where age and weight are less of a handicap than on the cricket pitch.
Andy West
Left-handed opening batsman and strictly one-handed fielder.
Oliver West
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.
