Midweek 1st Team Captain, Senior Cricket & Social & Fundraising Sub-Committee Member; Right-hand batsman; Right-arm medium fast bowler
Nick, originally part of Joe Harris’ junior cricket ‘academy’ at Mulbarton, joined Great Melton in 2014 having previously played for Ketteringham Hall and Bunwell. Nick bowls with a fair bit of pace and enough bounce to worry batsmen and he’s no slouch with the bat himself. In 2013 he hammered a magnificent 174 not out for Bunwell against Kirkley and currently has a Melton ‘highest-score’ of 83. In his first season at Melton Nick flitted between the B, A, and 1st Teams but, in 2015 and 2016, a leaner and fitter Nick cemented a 1st Team place with 16 and 22 wickets respectively as well as helping the Sunday & Midweek Teams enjoy good seasons. Now very much a first team player, Nick’s availability is affected somewhat by his work commitments but this hasn’t stopped him getting involved with the club off the field. As a member of the Social & Fundraising Sub-Committee Nick has played a leading role in organising the last 3 successful tours as well as the Beer Festival and Six-A-Side and he has also taken on the captaincy of the Midweek 1st Team for the last 4 seasons.
