Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club 1st XI Sunday squad

1st XI Sunday

Captain : Romesh Paktsun

I joined Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club in 2014. I am keen to have a good game of cricket any day. Nothing to do with being brought up in Sri Lanka (where they eat, breath and sleep cricket).

Not sure what I bowl, but been told that I turn the ball some times. I must be a spinner then? I am a busy body on the field and have battle scars and stories to prove it! I try to hit a few runs given the chance too. My team mates may beg to differ! 

I love a good party and a social too.

Vice Captain : Matthew Billings

Players
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.

Spent a couple of seasons as 2nd Team skipper to nurture the development of those less than half his age.

Stepped in for a couple of years as Chairman from 2016-2018.

Now nuturing his fragile and agin body from season to season (and indeed game to game) to see how long it can continue to endure cricket.

Can always be relied upon to join in when there is a curry on offer.

Charlie Mann
A talented keeper/batsmen who has represented the club at all levels up to Saturday 1st. Broke into the first team last year and did not look back. Played some important innings in his time and hopes for more to come this season
