Porthleven career stats since 1999
D.O.B. 18/12/79 (ok, ok 1970!!!)
Prowess Right arm 'bent', right handed 'bat'!
Highest Score 93 not out v Stithians 1998
Best Bowling 8-37 v Lanner 1997
Debut for Porthleven 1995 v Troon at home - a 10 wicket win and I didn't get to bat or bowl! I nearly packed it in there and then!
Greatest cricketing moment winning the league title last season, coupled with winning the Ashes - we got slightly less publicity but it still meant a lot to PCC!
Worst cricketing moment losing last years Andrew Cup final by 1 run off the last ball when I was on strike. I felt like I'd let everyone down, and to make it worse then had to pick up a 'losers' trophy and force a smile! Hopefully this year things will be different............!
Funniest cricketing moment I can't give full details, but it concerns Chris Bray in a friendly about 15 years ago. It was something he said, and those that know him can probably imagine!!
Cricketing Hero Ian Botham. The 1981 Ashes series got me hooked on this game!
Favourite ground PCC obviously! I used to play at Roche in friendlies years ago - a lovely wicket in a beautiful setting
Favourite food / drink Salad/Tonic water
Favourite Actor / Actress Paul Combellack in his plays - he manages to cover both bases!
Favourite music I'm stuck in the 80s, just a new romantic at heart....or whatever they play in Big T's!
Hobbies Cricket, Football, National Hunt racing, Egg-chasing trips,PCC tours
Who would you like to be stranded on a desert island with Girls Aloud (Just hope the ginger one can cook!)
Song you would like to be played as you walked out to bat "Smack my bitch up" by the Prodigy......a song we can all relate to at times!
