Captains and Vice Captains
My name is Cameron Baldock and I am the Saturday Captain at Ferring Cricket Club for the 2021 season. I have been a player at Ferring for around 10 years having initially started playing for the club from about the age of 17 or 18. In recent years I have become one of the Club Welfare Officers, a role I’ve held for the past 4 years or so. In terms of playing I have done a bit of everything, having previously been a bowler, however now I am more often played as a batsmen or wicket keeper. It is my aim for the Saturday side to play friendly but competitive cricket in an entertaining way giving all players the opportunity to be involved and improve their cricketing skills.
Saturday Vice Captain
Chris is a solid all-rounder who happily bats where the skipper wants him, and bowls at a steady slow-medium pace. He also assists the thriving Colts' section of the club in a coach support role. He played schools' representative cricket in his home county of Leicestershire. He has lived in Ferring village for four years, after spending 10 years in North Africa and then France where, unsurprisingly, there was little cricket on offer! He is now enjoying being reunited with the game and the opportunity to be a part of Ferring Cricket Club
Alex is a Northerner who played cricket for a few clubs in the North West, before moving to Ferring in 2013. He was delighted to have found a local team that is friendly, and no matter what happens in the game, they still grab a pint at the local pub. He's your typical number 11 batter but once scored a 50 (he says it's unlikely to ever be repeated!) He can bowl a bit, his best figures being 6 for 36, and was once picked solely for his fielding prowess.
Sunday Vice Captain
Malcolm joined Ferring Cricket Club in 2017, joining his son as a member, after not playing the sport for 25 years. The opportunity to take part in the club has brought him closer to his local community, and has allowed him to become involved in cricket charities. This gave him the confidence to travel to Rwanda as part of the 'Cricket without boundaries' tour and give some time back to good causes. He enjoys the odd bowl here and there, takes a few wickets, and on occasion you might see him score a 1 or 2.
