One of the pioneering Strollers from the 1980s, Simon
is slowly approaching his 100th appearance for the Club.
Still a few years left in the old dog - apparently he
can still get into the same pair of cricket slacks he
wore in 1989 - just.
Most likely to come into bat after the fall of the
first wicket (ie sometime between 2.30 and 2.36). Records
suggest, he reliably informs us, that Poole or
Popsy to his team-mates - has over 20 fifties to his
name. Finally reached his first century in the last game of the 2005 season. His extremely slow "leg-breaks" have
been known to be very effective on bumpy wickets although
the old boy's shoulder stiffened up towards the end
of the 1999 season.
