2016_Wilson CraigRight hand batsman; Right-arm seam bowler

Craig made his senior debut in 2014, appearing in the Sunday Friendly side before being called up for the C Team but, having missed much of 2015 through injury, he became a ‘regular’ Saturday player in 2016. He followed his older brother Stuart to the club in 2010 and played all 20 matches for the successful U11s side that won the South Norfolk Community League in 2011. They won it again in 2012. As U13s in 2013, they reached the final of both the ECB and the Terry Moore Competitions, losing both to Great Witchingham, however, Craig picked up more South Norfolk Community League winners medals in 2013 and 2014 as well as 2 indoor Zip League titles. Having grown considerably taller in the last couple of seasons Craig has added a bit of bounce to his nagging accuracy. As a bowler Craig keeps things very simple – he just bowls straight – a formula that has already brought him much success. Generally a quiet lad but with a good sense of humour Craig enjoyed the experience of playing cricket on the outfield at Lords during the lunch interval of the 2013 Ashes Test and kept us all entertained with his singing on the bus home. He has already played 117 times for the club and has taken 84 wickets. Like all bowlers, Craig fancies himself as a batsman. He has certainly improved a lot and we should see him beat his best score of 30 not out before long. Like his dad, Craig is a dab hand with the scorebook!
