Volunteer Coordinator; Executive Committee, ECB Level 2 Coach; Left-arm slow bowler.
Chris, when team manager of the Norfolk Girls U17s and U15s, approached Great Melton in 2012 with a view to the club fielding a team in the TGS Norfolk Women’s League, thus providing competitive cricket for some of his County girls who did not play for other clubs. The Committee embraced the idea and Women and Girls’ cricket at Great Melton has been on the rise ever since. Chris, who lives in Forncett St Peter, played and coached at Bunwell for many years but his Melton debut for the C Team at Rocklands in 2012 where he took 5-21 in 10 overs of mesmerising left-arm spin will long live in the memory. Now he turns out and coaches only occasionally but continues to serve the club as Volunteer Coordinator while his company, Blenheim Sports, supplies the club and many of its players with kit.
