Kieron Smith

Specialist second slip Kieron is a throwback to another era. He plays cricket in the spirit of post-war England - he always walks when he has nicked it and has never been known to wind-up opposition bowlers by 'stepping away' just as they begin their run-up.

He always has a friendly 'hello' for opposition batsman and enjoys discussing their technique with them; always cajoles and encourages team mates in the field and is happy when catches are dropped off his bowling.

But most of all Kieron loves to spend his afternoons discussing the rules of cricket with umpires whilst he is bowling. A fine runner between the wickets, he is perhaps best remembered for trying to run Simon out every time they bat together, for his Strollers record opening partnership of 226 with Toby Fildes and for his cat-like reactions in avoiding death by a mustard pot thrown from ten yards by the Strollers ex-quick bowler.
