Joe Bickel

Right-hand batsman; Right-arm leg-spin bowler

Having initially played his junior cricket for Old Buckenham, Joe moved to Melton mid-way through the 2008 season, playing in the C & B Teams before breaking into the A Team, and occasionally the 1st Team in 2013.   After a spell away from cricket Joe joined the army but he continues to play for Melton whenever he can, becoming an effective First Team leg-spin bowler and excellent fielder as well as assisting with junior coaching on Friday evenings.
