Simon Poole

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.
