30 Second Interview...
When did you play your first cricket match and how did you get on?
Played for the twoooooooos away at Elstree on a baking hot August Saturday (we don’t have them anymore). We got hammered. I think I got a duck and bowled terribly.
What's the funniest moment you've witnessed on a cricket field?
So many to name...many involve a Rawson sulk or rant. Phil Carter stopping his train during a Sunday game and bellowing expletives across the railway line to us playing on the wicket. However, it would without a doubt be Neeeeeeeeal Furmenger’s attempted catch off Weston’s talented batsman Orville Batson. Batson simply chipped a catch off Dave Harding’s wobbly medium pacers to Furmo at short midwicket. He took two steps back, his legs went to jelly, fell over and the ball hit him on the way down. Priceless!
Which five people would you most like to invite to a dinner party?
I would like to invite people who have inspired me in one way or another. So my list would be; Lance Armstrong, Darren Hayes, Richard Branson, Muhammed Ali and finally, my mum.
Which five people would you least like to invite to a dinner party?
Gordon Ramsay as he would no doubt complain about the quality (or lack of) of my food. Gordon Brown as he is quite possibly the most characterless person in the world. Adolf Hitler as he is at the top of list of the mass-murdering f*ckheads who have graced this world. Neil Warnock as he is a piggy b*stard and finally Ashley Cole as he is quite frankly a nasty piece of filth.
If you were on a desert island what three items would you take with you?
Helicopter, Laptop and bag of groceries.
What's the best piece of advice you have ever had?
If at first you don’t succeed, give up and go down the pub.
