CHRIS CANNINGS

 

DOB 30-03-1986

Often goes by a nickname such as Captain Chaos, Christine or Canno. He earns his living as a Marketing Manager.

Now in his third season at East Leeds, Chris made his debut in the first team and since then has played in the first and second teams. A right handed bat he prefers opening the innings but suggests this may be a sore subject with his team mates. The second team has seen his highest score  of 60+.  Again in the second team, an opening century partnership with Martin Kent, who happens to be his favourite player, is his best moment at East Leeds.

Chris claims to be a “very fast” right arm bowler, a secret he seems to share with himself, not having displayed this skill with his team-mates.

An agile fielder he prefers to field at point.

Before coming to East Leeds Chris has played for Rotherham Town and Rotherham Phoenix

His best moment at Rotherham is scoring 75 in a winning run chase in a cup semi final against the big rivals, but just failing in the final and losing by 5 runs.
