Role: Right Handed Middle Order Batsman
Nickname: Geezer, Spalding, George
Barbarians No: 7
Geezer even in his mid 40s is still one of the most important players at the club both on and off the field. He does so much work behind the scenes which a lot of club members don’t realise.
He struggled with a serious arm injury in 2013, but his return to fitness in 2014 saw him score 471 runs at an average of 39.25.
2012 was also massively impressive for Geezer when he struck 626 runs at 28.45. He struck four 50s and only Phil Bush scored more runs than him in 2012.
As a Junior he played in the same side as former England batsman Mark Ramprakash and has stayed with the club he joined in the late 1970s.
He is a hard hitting middle order batsman that hits the ball all around the ground. He is brutal against all types of bowling but is particularly savage against spin bowling. He is the best sweepers of a ball at the club, he is able to play all manner of sweep shots hitting the ball all around the leg side.
He has scored 15 centuries for the Borough over the years including a Twenty20 hundred in a Mayor of Harrow game at Pinner coming in at number 5.
As a bowler he started off as a canny off break bowler but his greatest success was as a medium pace seamer for the first and second elevens. Always bowling full and straight, Geezer always concurred with the saying ‘they miss and you hit’. He has plenty of variation and has been a regular wicket taker. Due a shoulder injury which has worsened in recent seasons, Geezer decided to retire from bowling in 2012.
Role: Right Arm Fast Medium Bowler
Nickname: Chav, JayDog
Barbarians No: 69
Jaydog is a swing bowler who bowls with great control and often does an excellent holding job without always getting the wickets that he deserves. He is also a brilliant Twenty20 bowler who is exceptional at bowling at the end of innings.
2011 was his break out season, when he finally emerged from his brother’s shadow and put in some exceptional performances with the ball. He lead the Second Eleven attack on Saturday’s and the First Eleven on Sundays and rightly won the Most Improved Player for the club in 2011.
In 2012, JayDog's performances carried on where he had left off in the previous season picking up 26 wickets at an average of 19.54. The highlight was a 5 wicket haul against South Hampstead 2nds in August. He continued to impress in 2013 picking up 24 wickets at an average of 28.
Chav is a very underrated batsman who very often has to bat at the business end and he does hit a long ball and he is also an excellent fielder. He scored an excellent 50 on tour at Lydney in 2012 which helped set up a close win.
He is a great character off the field due to his comedy and camp dress sense. He is also an excellent cameraman who takes some great photos which appear on this site.
Role: Right Handed Middle Order Batsman & Right Arm Off Break Bowler
Mits is another product of our excellent junior system and he has become a vital member of our senior sides since 2011.
Everybody at the club is sure that Mit will develop into a fine allrounder in the coming seasons but his main role currently is with the ball.
Last summer was the first season that he showed his outstanding talent with the bat as he scored 344 runs at an average of 31 and struck three half centuries.
Mit is an excellent off spin bowler who bowls big spinning off break and a clever arm ball. He is also not afraid to give the ball some air when needed and he doesn't get intimidated if a batsman tries to get after him.
After showing much promise in 2010, it was one year later that was his breakthrough with his performances seeing him win the senior bowler of the year award.
He has continued to excel and in 2014 he picked up a career best 35 wickets.
In four of the last five seasons he has taken 20+ wickets and become a vital member of our first and second eleven squads.

the North East and he immediately set about making himself a vital member of
Nobody works harder than Wardy in the nets all year round to improve his
game and he has come on leaps and bounds in recent seasons. He is a tall man

field. He also loves a pint and can often be found propping up the bar into the
