Non-triskaidekaphobic grandpa of the team. Statuesque fielder, wistful but ambitious right hand batsman, slow septuagenarian left arm bowler. Very optimistic: “if I don’t know what’s coming next, what hope does the batsman have?”
Pete joined the club halfway through the 2010 season, quickly establishing his credentials as a negligible cricketer. He became involved in the administration of the club, helping establish the 3rd XI, and serving as captain for their first two seasons in 2011 and 2012.
Pete is a swing bowler. After many hours of sympathetic coaching, his bowling has evolved from slow filth to medium not-quite-so-filthy. His fielding and batting - the latter often involving lengthy, ineffectual stonewalling, including an infamous 44 ball duck in 2011 - remain liabilities.
Also Edinburgh South treasurer; responsible for club treasure.
