Liss Cricket Club

Liss Cricket Club 2nd XI squad

2nd XI

Captain : Chris Hedicker

Fearless captain, anchoring the number 11 spot, Christian can be relied upon for his quality scoring (with the pen as opposed to the bat), and solid medium pace bowling. His unparalleled winning record (tosses, not matches) is the envy of all other clubs.

Vice Captain : Lawrence Baker

Lawrence is a greatly valued member of Liss Cricket Club. A bowler who has taken hundreds of wickets over the years will be looking to help the 2nd XI with handfuls of wickets again. Another successful year in 2017 saw him bag 11 league wickets at an average of 19.91, conceding a, as usual, miserly 2.61 runs an over. A talented and very consistent bowler with the ability to change the game during his spells with the ball. The question is can Lawrence's ankle take another year of his unconventional fielding style?
Players
Ian Brownlee
Ian is a great player to have in any side. He is a solid wicket keeper and is a fantastic club man. His middle order anchor innings can be worth their weight in gold when all around him have lost their heads. Ian has also been uncovered as a great 6-a-side bowler.
Dave Chambers
Turtle resembles the FA Cup to a T, but on the cricket resembles Sydney Harbour Bridge. Always good for selection in the 1's for a laugh, but belongs in the 3's at best! Turtle will be looking to get his hands on one of the most prestiege club awards at the end of season dinner dance....The Duck Bat.
George Davy
In 2017 played his first consistent year with the 2nd XI. A very promising, young, prospect in all aspects of the game, Rodders will be looking to develop his skills in the 2018 season and put in match-winning performances for the 2nd XI
Jonnie Evans
Answering the 2nd XI's rally for men, during its re-inception in 2015, Jonnie has been an ever-present figure in the 2nd XI ranks over the past 3 years. Given he had limited game time prior to 2015 Jonnie has progressed steadily in recent years and will be looking to gain more consistency with the bat in 2018, with his tremendously powerful on-side game.
Matty Evans
Sadly a Southampton fan but despite this major flaw, Matty is an extraordinarily talented player in all aspects of the game. After a couple of seasons flitting between the 1st XI and the 2nd XI, Matty will be looking to impress his captain with match-winning performances and drive the 2nd XI up the leagues.
Craig Feargrieve
Joined the club in 2017 after moving down from Newcastle, Craig played his first ever-cricket season and- it can be safely said-thoroughly enjoyed himself taking 5 wickets in 6 matches. An archetypical tough and gritty Geordie, Craig had an outstanding first-ever year in his cricket flannels.  
Steve May
A steady opening batsman who has been with the 2nd XI since 2015, Steve will be looking to build upon his sturdy starts and convert them to big runs. An excellent close fielder, who used to play in goal, Steve has taken some brilliant catches in close at slip or gully.
Jimmy Small
Jimmy is one of the more experienced members of the first team and a bit of a jack of all trades of the cricket field. Without doubt, his greatest ability lies in the field. Over the years Jimmy has taken breathtaking catches and produced many a direct hit run outs. Jimmy will look to add vital runs and will be dependable with the ball in his hand.
Jake Southam
In recent years Jake has transformed himself into a hard hitting batsman playing the David Warner type role; opening the batting and attempting to get the team off to as quick a start as possible. Deceptively agile and nimble Jake is an excellent all round fielder who on his day can produce breathtaking pieces of fielding. 
Tom Townsend

A rather eccentric fellow who joined Liss II's last year. After a steady start with the bat in 2016 and with the help of his butler, Tom will be looking to convert those starts into big and consistent scores. Always jolly Tom is a valuable resource to the morale of the team.

Sam Waine
During the 2017 season, Sam played his first full season behind the stumps and improved brilliantly with each game. With cat-like reflexes and a steady head, at a young age, Sam is showing and promising to be a very talented young wicket-keeper batsmen, especially given his tremendous defensive capabilities. In 2018 Sam will be looking to continue his all-round improvement and aid in the commencement of the 2nd XI's charge up the leagues.
