Northowram Fields CC Second XI squad

Second XI

Captain : Jason Slator

Tom Barraclough
Left-arm medium pacer who turned out regularly for the Third XI in 2011 and will do so again in 2012. Quiet and unassuming, but will hopefully develop a nasty streak some time soon.
Paul Bottomley
A classic right-handed batsmen with the style of Bradman and the grace of Sobers. Also has an appetite second only to Mr Creosote. His appearances have been limited in recent years due to having produced more children than Ulrika Jonsson and it's likely this situation will continue in 2012. Always likely to score heavily when he plays, however.
Joshua Dodd
Supports Leeds United
Favourite Food Toad in the Hole (proper food!)
Dislikes Mushrooms, and having his photo taken
Nickname Doddy
Steve Elliott
There are 2 great cricket teams in Northowram:- Northowram Fields Firsts and Northowram Fields Seconds!! Looking forward to the season and winning the league!! 
Ben Grech
A product of the NFCC Youth Development System. Grew mentally (if not physically) in 2011 with regular First XI cricket and is one of the very few bright young things at the Club at the present. Will hopefully make a top five spot his own in 2012. Still not old enough to do any of the fun things in life.
Lewis Moore
Nickname 'Dougal'
Supports Man Utd
Favourite food -jam sandwiches
Exercise regime - operating X-box
Special talent - walking very slowly when fielding
James Norcliffe
Mini Nocker. Promising batsman/spinner who'll be even better when he gets his hair cut.
Kamlesh Patel
Along with Jason Smith, 'Kammy' is the only known member of NFCC to have his own Wikipedia page, though you can access Kammy's with the children's filter switched off. Here, it describes him as a 'steady right-arm medium pacer with an occasional ability to move the ball away from right-handed batsmen'. Oh, and he's also an OBE and a member of the House of Lords.
Callum Philipson
medical information
Being taught the right way, as you'd expect given his parentage, and will surely be a proper cricketer when he's older.

Supports Bradford City
Favourite Food Chicken
Dislikes Rice
Nickname Shortlegs

Ian Rushworth
Not only the oldest man at the Club but also the most patient, an approach which paid huge dividends in 2011 as he accumulated 601 league runs and held the Second XI batting together on numerous occasions. And that despite playing just three attacking shots all summer. Rumoured to be playing on a more occasional basis in 2012, but he's said that before!
Matthew Rushworth
Right-arm opening bowler. Personal issues probably behind his loss of form in 2011 but seems much more settled since being taken under the wing of the Cotter/Grogan Management Group. Much better is expected in 2012, especially if he's given an extended run in 'The Stiffs' where he might get the chance to show off his batting skills to better effect more often.
Chris Thompson
Thirty years, man & boy for NFCC. His wicket-taking skills weren't on show as often as usual in 2011, but his increasingly close relationship with the new captain should ensure he bowls more overs in 2012. No. 11 slot rumoured to be under threat. Also known for his witty voiceover work on a popular ITV gaffes show.
