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.
Matt Robinson
Rugby, racing and beer (and cricket!!)
