Meet the Players Paul Wootton

In todays installment of Meet the Players we have former player Paul Wootton

What is your nickname and why? 

Thamesy or Woots. Thamesy because I created an impassable barrier in the field and could not move left or right! 

How/why did you join Abberton Cricket club? 

I moved over from Gloucestershire and started working at Hambro insurance. I asked about cricket in the area and Penny Hester gave me Edgar Rumney's number. So I turned up for a run out for the 2nds.

When was your League debut, who was it against and how did you get on?
First game was for the 2nds. I could not find my whites so had to borrow Edgar's, needless to say I was restricted! 

What are your career best figures? 
Bat:- 140* 

What is your most memorable moment in an Abberton shirt? 

Opening the batting with Shaun Calladine and watching him smash a double century. Can't remember running much!
