Those We Have Loved - (20 senior players who played in 2008 but not this year)

James “Jimbo” Hussey – our former Sunday captain who has 117 appearances to his name hopes to be back in 2010.  Lethal spinning type who also plays his trademark dab through the slips.  1357 runs @ 15; 78 wickets at 28.88

Peter “Basher” Bullock  – Former Thakeham captain who has 57 games to his name.  882 runs at 17.29.  Recently seen strutting his stuff on the tennis court.

Steve “Ratta” Tuhey – former vice captain (and occasional captain) of the Sunday side tells us he’s cannot spare the time now he’s football coaching and his wife’s spotted where he went on Sunday afternoons.  94 appearances – 841 runs at 11.52; 42 wickets at 33.33.

Peter “WG” Jones – Tragically broke his unbeaten sequence of playing for West Chiltington, and latterly the merged club, for 137 consecutive seasons when he failed to turn out this year.  He played against the Chairman’s XI for the President in cricket week again and continues to give up his time to support the colts.  Loves golf, red wine and his wife.  49 games for the merged club. 628 runs at nearly 15. 37 wickets at 21 with his canny off spin.

Mark Evans – A useful top order batsman for the 2nd XI and Sunday side.  38 games, 462 runs at average of 13.59.  Mark gave in to the punishing police shifts to spend more time with his family.  Will he return?  Only time will tell.

Hew Belgrave – 2nd XI and Sunday keeper/batsman. 10 games 302 runs at 30.2.  No idea where this young man is.  If you see him, tell him to get back in touch and play some cricket for us!

Sean Goring – Succumbed at last to pleasures of golf and a lady from East Preston.  Son of Big Phil.  Useful ex colt bowler, lower order clobber and elder brother of Matthew. 42 games. 242 runs @ 10.91; 37 wickets at nearly 23.

Toby “The Hedgehog” Feakins – Hedgy appeared fitfully last season after being a regular in 2006 and 2007.  All rounder in several ways.  28 appearances; 227 runs @ 11.35.  32 wickets at 25.72.  Allegedly living the high life in bars in Bristol and other salubrious places.

Nigel “Gentleman” Brittle – A lover of the game who was often selected to chat up the oppo whilst the Welshman took runs and wickets.  A former Social Secretary of the Club, Nigel has moved the family  to Buckinghamshire and a job in Milton Keynes.  54 appearances; 173 runs.

Miles Godfrey – The cheerful hack from the coast who’s now allegedly loved up.  An unusual off-spinner and a spectacular fielder mainly for theSunday side.   31 appearances.  62 runs @ 4.13; 13 wickets at 29.69

Chris Wills – Express fast bowler again for the Sunday side who never got the wickets he deserved and lively number 11 bat!  23 appearances.  Often appeared as a double act with his mate Dave Willmer who wasn’t seen last year.  50 runs @ 7.14; 17 wickets at 44.65

Chris Felton – Two games last year for the Sunday side including 3-17 at home to Fittleworth.

J. Cattlin – One game for the Sunday side last year at Milland

Mike Jarvie – One Sunday game against Ansty last year following a game the year before at Slinfold for the Under 16s.

Tom Brown - Played against Nazeing Common in 2008 plus a couple of 16s games.

Mark Jeffries – Ex Sussex colt, Baby Jeffries (are you sure, he’s a man mountain! Ed) played against Aldwick last year for the 2nds.  Resides in Dublin making regular appearances tricky.

C. White - played at home against Barns Green for the 1sts last year.

Alex Banfield C. Winter - played at Watersfield last season.  Alex has gone to Canada to study.

Ross Alibone – Played at Cuckfield last year

Megan Goring - Played against Hurstpierpoint last year.  Sister of Matt and Sean in a very sporting family.
