Management Committee Members

Chairman

Pete Croxson

Tel: 07709 489624

Kitmaster Pete Croxson

Pete has been a club member since 2003 and is a serial committee member having started out as Sunday captain and fixtures secretary, nudging Mr. Lowe out of the way; then removing the not inconsiderable volume (in two senses) of Phil Stride from his lengthy stint as captain of the League side and from 2015 took over the role of Kitmaster.  It was almost inevitable that when John Lowe had to move aside as chairman, that Pete would step in.

Treasurer

Pete Rowson

Tel: 07802 908305

Treasurer Pete Rowson

Peter has been involved with the club on and off for many  years, dallying with other local teams in between.  Finally seeing the error of his ways he rejoined on a permanent basis in 1994 and occupied the Chairman’s seat (or two) from 2003 to 2010.  A bowler turned wicket-keeper/batsman, Peter can be considered to be more all-round than most of us.  Contemplates playing many a delicate wristy shot, but then decides to try and knock the leather off the ball instead - with varying degrees of success.

Secretary

Hayley Cooke

Secretary Hayley Cooke

Hayley knows how to fill in a scorebook of many colours, and as of the 2015 season she extended her control further, by taking on the role of club secretary.  A very enthusiastic member of the club she seems to keep a smile on her face despite anything that the weather throws at her whilst outside.  Probably not best to get on her wrong side though!

Hampshire League and club captain

Peter Hicks

peter@thehickses.org.uk
Tel: 07803 463286

Club Captain Peter Hicks

Pete is one of the younger members of the squad having been the club’s youth policy for less than 30 years, and 2017 will be his third season as club captain.  Very committed - some say he should be - he did at least get married outside of the normal season to ‘ordinary’ member Kay.

Sunday friendly captain

Eswar Vutukuri

eswar.vutukuri@gmail.com
Tel: 07722 129788

Sunday Captain Eswar Vutukuri

Eswar has played four seasons for the club, and has shown tremendous enthusiasm and no lack of ability - two attributes that don’t always go together with players for the club.  As the successor to Mark Cross as skipper, he has been trying to learning the captain’s art of gloomy cynicism, but to date he has shown no ability in this particular area - a few more seasons watching middle order collapses could soon change that though.

Fixtures secretary

John Lowe

johnlowe1976@gmail.com
Tel: 07725 706472

JLowe2

John joined the club in 2001 - well at least it was this century, unlike a large number of others, and 2017 was his seventh season as chairman until a change of job made that position untenable!  A wicket-keeper-batsman (think Jos Buttler, and then imagine someone completely different), he took over the role of Sunday captain from 2003 to 2007, one of the most successful periods of Sunday cricket in the club’s history.  Good humoured until trees fall on his car in the car park or he tries to take a catch behind the stumps with his teeth or he returns from tour with a batting average of 0.33 or he fails ever to deliver a legal ball, or... what’s next?

Indoor League secretary

Sally Priddy

sally.priddy@outlook.com

Indoor League Secretary Sally priddy

Sally has been Indoor Secretary for a couple of years now, but her talents go well beyond that.  She is a qualified scorer, has organised one successful tour and put up with banter from Stride, Rowson, Tate, Rayer and all other entries in the Hampshire phone books for many years.

Kitmaster

John Lowe

Tel: 07725 706472

JLowe2

The perceptive amongst you will note some similarity to the person two slots above, so little point repeating myself here.  Little point repeating myself here.

Ordinary member

Rob Tate

bobtate@tinyworld.co.uk
Tel: 07723 367971

Ordinary Member Rob Tate

Since joining the club in 1990, Rob has played most matches, scored most runs and taken most outfield catches.  Time he caught up with Rowson on stumpings then!  Does a huge amount of pitch preparation, has been known to organise tours and just generally helping out with anything including buying the post-match soft drinks.  Also the only (known?) granddad in the squad despite being younger than many.

Ordinary member

Kay Hicks

KHicks1

Ordinary she is not!  Kay has taken this role for the 2017 season and has plenty of  positive ides to help the club.  Common sense may be the weak point though as she married Pete - or should that be the other way round?

Other Contacts

Indoor League captain

Peter Hicks

Indoor League Captain Peter Hicks

Pete (see Saturday Captain) also captained the Indoor side for the third time in 2016/17, with a much improved record from the previous season - however, that was not difficult to achieve.

Hampshire League vice-captain

Roland Barnard

 

Roland has been playing for the club for a considerable period of time, albeit many seasons he has only played the odd game or two.  His desire to know his own stats makes others wonder whether or not there is any ulterior motive to him playing.  Those who know better recognise the fact that, as a teacher, he is still learning his numbers and is wisely taking every possible opportunity to practice.  Hope I don’t get detention for making that comment!

Sunday friendly vice-captain

Pete Croxson

Kitmaster Pete Croxson

Look carefully and you may see reference to this person further up the page. Honest.  I know he’s easy to miss, but look carefully and you might spot him.

Umpire (friendly matches)

Stuart Boyd

SBoyd2

Stuart has never played for IBM SHCC.  For many years he tempted us with balls that just needed hitting over the boundary at Rogate, but many of us fell to his wily ways.  Having now moved from the tweaking finger to the twitching finger role he can still send you back to the pavilion wondering why you did what you just did and occasionally wondering if you really did do it.  As of 2016, he also became the club fixtures secretary and is breathing new life into the fixture list which had suffered at the hands of so many teams folding.

Scorer

Hayley Cooke

Scorer Hayley Cooke

She’s further up the page in case you hadn’t noticed.  And if not, why not?  She will want to know and record the fact on one of her ledgers, so have a care.  And who was the last man?

See above; copy and paste is just too difficult.

New Place groundsman

Rob Tate

Groundsman Rob Tate

Another one who wears multiple hats (see above) - and doing a tremendous job after the great foundations laid down by his predecessor, Kev Gledstone.

Webmaster

Trevor Lee

trevor_lee@uk.ibm.com

Webmaster and Statistician Trevor Lee

Over 30 years of playing at the club, Trevor played one season for the club in 1980 and is thus the longest serving member still playing regularly.  After a gap working in the Midlands he rejoined on a permanent basis in 1984.  “Bowler” turned “batsman”, he captained the Sunday side for 9 seasons but now performs the role of club statistician, historian and webmaster.  As such he hears the phrase “get a life” on a regular basis... and various other phrases that can’t be repeated here.
