Dave is a change bowler for the 2nds who often doesn't give away much.
What is your nickname and why?
Books or Booksie.....Pretty self explanatory really.
Most memorable moment in an Abberton shirt?
Any of the teams I've been in that have been got promoted in. Two stand out, Witham away in an ill tempered game which has already been mentioned several times. Then there was Dunmow away last season, another game that was ill tempered and had nothing to do with me......hey Arnie!
When was your league debut?
I honestly cannot remember my Abberton debut, probably somewhere around 2004. I remember my first game in mens cricket though. It was for Colchester Grasshoppers at home to Birch at Boudicea Way in the Lancaster Garages league. I think I hit 43 and took a couple of wickets
My All time Abberton XI?
If you was on a desert island, name one book you would take and read.
Not quite sure, probably one of the autobiographies I have. The book I'm reading at the moment is called ' If This Is A Man/The Truce' by Primo Levi. An Auschwitz survivor who details his life in the camp and his life after the camp was liberated by the Russians
If Abberton were on a cruise ship and you have three spaces left in the life raft, which three members are you saving and why?
Kevin Chapman and Will House. Purely because I doubt there would be a dull moment with these two and you would certainly need your spirits lifting at some point.
Marc Fox. Mr Chairman. He would need to be there for his level headiness just in case things di not go to plan!
Best bat I have owned?
I've owned 3 'gun' bats, a DF Magnum, a Gray Nicolls GN500 and a Kookaburra Bubble. I thin the GN500 just pips the other two.
I have seen the band OMD (Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark) perform over 150 times
