    Moorabbin. I think one or two games in the ones, mostly in the magoos and threes. Promising junior - hatch, dowling sheild, average park cricketer.

    I also did some time on the mats at Brighton Central in the Longmuir Sheild. (remember getting spanked by Dav Whatmore and another time by Julian Weiner).

    Yep, I was just a couple of years ahead of Hodgey when he came through Moorabbin.

    Best cricketer who ever played at that club, aside from a cameo from Malcolm Marshal.

    Hey guys I am Bonnie Prince C, or Callum. I live in Scotland. Absolutely love cricket and love reading up on it and checking out stats. While not many Scots would admit to it I do follow the English cricket team. I have mostly English family and Scotland unfortunately do not play at the top standard. However, I do also follow Scotland and would support them over England on the rare time they would compete. I have been around cricket since a young age, I used to always play cricket with my cousins in England, however did not really get into it properly until about 2003. Without the series which made be 100% fall in love with cricket was the 2005 Ashes series. Not because England one but because of how it was played and how entertaining it was.

    I am currently without a side after moving from Perth to Glasgow for education purposes. I will hopefully find a club after the new year when winter nets will start up.

    Garry Sobers, Andrew Flintoff and Virender Sehwag would be my favourite players and icons. Sobers to his absolute all round skill, being able to bat and bowl both spin and seam, something that I do at a far lower standard, Flintoff for how he played the game, I do find him a bit over rated as an allrounder at times but the spirit he played with was fantastic and Sehwag for his aggression.

    Anyway hope I didn't drag that on

    CW has a duplicate post alert thing. CricSim isn't as bad with the mobile site either.
    But what's actually happened is we had a power cut, so the Internet timey-outer thing got reset... and my step-dad's away and hasn't been home to fix it.
