Nickname - Gregs, Jimmy, G-Man, G-Unit, G-String or anything else funny that follows G I suppose.
Joining Abberton - just through family members playing. My Dad was still playing when I was born and my brothers obviously played too. Plus the old dear done some alright teas too.
League debut - I think was in 2008. Smashed Long Melford in the 2's first game of the season. I think we got 300odd and skittled them for not many. I got a couple of wickets and I think Gilly rocked up and got 5 too. This was a Div 7 game as well!
Best figures - Bat: 102* against St Margaret's on a Sunday. Bowling: I got like 6/20 in a U16 Essex matchplay game against some Chelmsford lot.
Memorable moments: Probably winning PDQ cup on a Sunday at the club. Or winning close games in Div 1 against the likes of Mistley or Coggeshall. Never made it easy for ourselves!
All time XI:
Favourite thing about club- Probably the ground and the all different characters. Made some good mates in my time there.
Away ground - Probably Castle Park although Elmstead and Frinton are always good to play. All great grounds.
Best player I've played with - Batsman - Dean Robinson. Overseas lad from Wivenhoe a few seasons back. Bowler - Would have to go with Matt Gilray. Both kiwi mugs.
Interesting fact - I actually used to be skinny at somepoint in my life.
