I have been working in professional sports for the best part of my life and after successful career as a player with Leeds FC (no longer in the premiership
) and as manager with Milwall I have turned my hand to my fourth love (behind women and fast cars), cricket. I have recently returned from a stint as player manager of the Riverton Amateur District 4th League Reserve team in a local Perth (Aus) competition. Given my experiences in Perth with cricket, the lifestyle and the ladies I openly encourage my players to do the same in the UK.
I have a young disciple by the name of Thomas (Tommy) 'ansell, particularly keen on player somewhere in the UK. Tommy is stouch left hand opener with some UK experience playing in the Sommerset Haddock and Fries second XII fixture during his junior career. The stats are not important but his value to the team is his ability to 'stick it out' under pressure, and provides useful variety with his mixed-bag, slow right arm thoftbreaks.
I believe that you have the services of a local lad by the name of Shane Lavender at your club? Can you tell me a little about how he was enlisted by your club and his experiences to date so that I may have some success in locating a home for Tommy soonest?
