Right-hand batsman; Right-arm bowler
‘Jethro’ started his Melton career as a bowler in 1989 when he came to Norfolk to work for Norwich Union but became better known as a batsman and is now the 4th highest run-scorer in Melton’s history. Jethro has been Treasurer as well as a successful captain, winning 7 trophies in his time as Sunday Captain, First Team Captain, A Team Captain and Midweek Captain. He has, until recently, been fully involved in the management of the club, organising tours and the six-a-side tournament. Family commitments and his job at The Benjamin Foundation mean that he makes very occasional appearances these days but he has been one of our most consistent batsmen and his very safe hands place him among the few specialist slip-catchers in the club.
