What I can Offer a club:

On the field I believe I can offer a solid position at the top or middle of the batting order, playing in whatever style best suits the team and situation of the game. I believe I also offer a cool and calming head when a player or the team may require it. Off the field I am a genuine club man who loves the social side of being a part of a team just as much as the competitive side. I am the current vice captain of our clubs committee and would be willing to help in any way possible within the cricketing community.
