Bowling all-rounder hailing from the mean streets of Warkworth, New Zealand. Have had a few seasons with Old Actonians now (some better than others). Always keen for a beer and a yarn...

Favourite New Zealand joke:

How does a Kiwi find a sheep in the long grass?

Very nice, thank you!

Clifford Pile
Bowls a cunning off break that doesn’t turn and knows which end of the bat to hold when required, who has been know to hit it off the square once or twice in his career. He has captained the club in two different spells since joining the club in 1997 from local rivals Brentham. Is found by the bar every evening after the game mainly talking to the opposition because everyone else at the club has heard his stories. A qualified cricket coach who helps with the colts on Sunday mornings. A founding and fully paid up member of the Grumpy Old Men squad.
Asif Qamar
Started playing cricket in 1988 in Pakistan coming across the likes of Shahid Afridi, Moin Khan & Rashid Latif. Afridi remembers him fondly as he once hit Asif for 5 sixes in a row.

Played previously for Croydon and Perivale/Phoenicians Cricket clubs before joining Old Actonians in 2008.

Has a theory regarding cricket that is - to bowl, bat and field is not enough, you must have a cricket sense, you have to be mentally strong, must believe in yourself; yes, I can do it at any cost.
