Andrew Foster Member profile Andrew Foster
Veteran Kiwi who came to the club at the start of the golden season of 2003.  

Bowls off spin poos sometimes but getting better with perseverance. Can be quite good at finishing an innings with bat or ball & maybe one day with both.

Junior Chairman & Club Welfare Officer, Tea critic bla bla bla...
Owen Groves Member profile - no photo available Owen Groves
All rounder who joined from Ware at the start of the 2016 season.  Made an immediate impact with 50* against Bishops Stortford for the 3rd XI.  Definite future 1st XI player.
Paul James Member profile Paul James
Paul "Two Darts" James is a old-fashioned swing bowler and when he gets right can be very difficult to face. It was these banana-balls which helped Paul win 2nd XI player of the year in 2005 and 2006. Reasonably quiet off the field, just goes about his business and is always around for a drink and chat. He won the 2010 Sawbridgeworth CC Premier Darts League, beating Danny "The Heir" Wilson 5-0 in the final.
William Jones Member profile William Jones
Joined the club from Ware at the start of the 2008 season.  Played two seasons for the 1st Team as a batsmen and occasional medium-pacer, before departing for Hong Kong.
Returned in July 2014 after nearly five years away, having changed to bowling leg-spin due to advancing years.
Has now taken up the mantle of 2nd Team skipper to nurture the development of those less than half his age.
Can always be relied upon to join in when there is a curry on offer.
