Copdock & Old Ipswichian Cricket Club

Copdock & Old Ipswichian Cricket Club 1st XI squad

1st XI

Captain : Chris Swallow

Since Chris came back to the club in a move like Shearer to Tyneside and the first team has progressed at an alarming rate since. The team began to prepare properly since his arrival and it is fair to say that the correlation between serial chokers and as nose would say wegular winners has followed since.

It did take years after the comeback to score his first hundred, after 58 scores between 30-40. Cavalier and exciteable, pidge is often the innovater.

So exciteable that jenko mocked up a Peter Pan a-likey and the similarities are uncanny.

Played at Lords, DIY badger and bats in sunhat.

Vice Captain : Jack Beaumont

Scorer : Paul Wright

Scorer, Driver, all round good Egg.

For some reason carries a black bag and an axe in the boot of his car??
Jed Cawkwell
Used to be nice before he joined Copdock...

Developing into Nose's new apprentice following Thomas' path to enlightenment. 

A proven biter.
Tom Jenkin
house wives favourite. Club Graphic designer. An interesting story about banana's floating around from his youth. Was a spinner, now an opening batsman, servere on anything short. Another very nice man!
Jack Mexome
Extremely talented player, hits mega bombs, will play 1's at some point. Stay clear when he's out, he's a bat, helmet and glove thrower! 
Donald Mlambo

Batting All-Rounder 


Jason Pembroke

Joined from Mistley for the 2017 Season

Claims to have once bowled 'gas' in the nets at the WACA and had Alex Hales snicked off. Also claims to be able to 'nibble it' on glass. 

Favourite Shot: 'Guide' through 1st slip

Best Attribute: One liners

Biggest Weakness: Honeycomb Cheesecake for lunch when having to bowl in the afternoon session.


Nathan Scarff
Joined in 2016, and immediately is in the running for the duck bat. Kit is most likely to be found hidden around the club. Supplier of 20 Chicken Nuggs for members who played a dodgy raincard. Certainly can't handle a beer!
Reuben Sharpe
Opening bat, great net bowler now and again... Mostly scores daddy teens... Electric in the field. 
Hugh Thomas
Former lower order thrasher, now dour and dull opening batsmen with limited ability. Suspect against good bowling.

Up and coming new ball bowler, though needs to shift a stone and discover a group of muscles also known as a core.
Matt Wareing
Joined the Crusaders this season, left arm bowler, a proper number 11!
Current coach of the under 15's/ ladies sides.
Sam Webb-Snowling
wicket-keeper batsmen

Regularly enjoys multiple VK's and the exotice nightlife of Leeds. Soon going to be married to Hugo. Can be seen on Sunday mornings asleep before junior training, sleeping off a 'Lit' night out in Unit! #HoldTight
