Great Horkesley & Lexden Cricket Club

Great Horkesley & Lexden Cricket Club First Team squad

First Team

Captain : Robin Seller

Vice Captain : Graeson Laitt

Shaakir Ahmed
Ramali's nephew. 
Mahesh Arcot
Leg spinner who has found time limited recently following his first child. Another of the club's medical team his performance against Wormingford at The Chantry last season (6-25) was one of the best ever from a Horkesley player.
Paul Hart
This Opening Bowler will have to show form early on to justify continued occupation of the position; with younger members bowling impressively in the nets he can't rely too heavily on his leading wicket-taker status for the previous 2008 season. This individual continues to have greater aspirations in respect of batting but an inaugural '6' in a match towards the end of last year won't in itself serve to advance him up the batting order! Also Vice-captain of the team and is ready to take over if Allan or Ramali are unavailable
Johnathan Hassan

2nd XI Vice-Captain
Evening League Captain.


David Laitt
One of the veteran's of the side, Dave Laitt has returned to become Chairman of the club for 2004. A former professional football, Dave is the father of skipper Graeson, though that doesn't stop the occasional scowl when he drops another catch from his favourite son.

Has been known to open the batting on occasions with his "swing-from-the-hip" style, and can be relied upon to bowl an occasional over - occasional being the key word.
Naveed Maan
allrounder - sometimes
Rana Mahmood
Right Hand Batsman. I love batting at No. 3
Jerry Morgan
Groundsman at 2nd.XI ground, Spring Lane, Lexden until switch to Mile End in 2015.
Kevin Saunders
A legend in his own teatime. Kevin likes to regal the club of stories of yore about Villa, Cricket, and buses. Sadly, coming from Birmingham, no one can actually understand a word that comes out of his mouth, and thus rely on the the translation services offered by his youngest daughter aged just a few months, who makes just about as much sense. A good fielder who gets in the way of the ball, he can be guaranteed to seek out the use of the first aid kit at least once a game.
Shafi Sayed
Joined the club last season, and is a welcome addition to the fast bowling department. A whippy action sees the ball come at you quicker than expected, he is also a very good fielder as well as being handy with the bat. Will prove to be a very useful middle order batsman but needs to remember that he can't appeal every ball!
Ed Sheen
A hard-hitting opening batsman who loves to get involved in the fielding as well.
Anirudh Thotapalli
I am a right arm fast medium bowler.
Top order batsman.
James Wallis
One of the few Horkesley villagers in the side, James has always impressed with either his keeping wicket or his no nonsense batting.
