Innings: 0

Runs Scored: 0

Stuart Bowker

Stuart Bowker


Stuart is a shy and retiring spin bowler, and holds a reasonably straight bat. Calm under pressure - unless Shelts boys are anywhere near him - his disciplinary record is in stark contrast to that of his football 'career'.

Pete Gartrell

Pete Gartrell


Pete's metronomic line and length make him economical and very effective. He's another player with a great record of fetching things from high places for the rest of us. He also sports an enormous St. Georges Cross hat...

Andy Hele

Andy Hele


Andy is an accomplished Wicketkeeper and destructive batsman, who tends to use his helmet as a third glove against spin. Hele-o tends to make the rest of us look like finely tuned athletes, him being so 'bulky' and all...

Alex Hunt

Alex Hunt


Alex is an accomplished batsman and bowler of 'very wides', and is useful for getting things from high places for the rest of us. He is also the proud owner and wearer of the patent pending, barely visible, Short-Shorts™

Adam Last

Adam Last


Lasty is a shy and retiring chap. His powerful batting and nagging line and length mark him out as a very useful all-rounder. Has been known to go on a bit though...

Adrian Lipton

Adrian Lipton

Lippo Jr.

Aidie has shown his skill as a bowler and batsman, and is a seniors 2nd team regular. He's been known to smile, having clocked up 1 so far this year...

Matt Lipton

Matt Lipton


Matt has risen through the club ranks, although he's now slumming it in the 1's. Pacey bowling, mixed with patient batting, and a Kieth Lemon style of arm-wear, make him a role model for his siblings... sort of...

Johnny Martin

Johnny Martin


Johnny has returned to Barton this year from SDCC. We welcomed him back by letting him try to kill Shelts. Only fair really. Renowned for his Filthy bowling and confident batting, and words of encouragement... don't duck Shelts...

Shaun Needham

Shaun Needham


Shaun is a classically trained snake-eater, also known to bat and bowl. An exuberant chap, with plenty of meaty chat. Currently making Bowks look ordinary whilst playing with a 4 piece collar-bone...

Adam Parker

Adam Parker


Adam is First Team captain, and an all-rounder who has spent his whole career at the club. Our players don't stand still for too long or he tries to flog any old tat that's lying around to them, on commission...

Jim Parker

Jim Parker


Jim is a Barton man, through and through. As 2nd XI skipper his shrewd judgement at the toss is legendary - we're bowling. Exquisite leg spin and staunch defence are trademark JP, as is his paternal encouragement in the field.

Steve Porter

Steve Porter


Erstwhile keeper of the peace, and regular umpire for the 2nd XI. We make him play now and again, just for giggles. Steve cannot be held responsible for the disgraceful attire of Ports... one can only do so much as a parent.

Tom Porter

Tom Porter


Tom is an economical wicket taker, and crusher of poor bowling. His taste in clothing is questionable, and he is famous for a pair of hideous orange leggings... we're collectively appalled...

Greg Shelton

Barry Shelton

Barry Shelton


Barry is a very correct batsman, and the younger, more slick of the Shelton boys. Shelts says he's a bit of a Boycs clone. At least nobody is trying to kill Baz... yet... Baz has the family hairdo this year.

Gary Spencer

Gary Spencer


Gary is the calm one after returning from exile in Cornwall. Some mean spin and the worlds heaviest bat are his trademarks. Taught Bowks everything he knows... although almost nothing about football stuck...
