DANNY GULLIVER (CAPT)
33, LT HAND BAT, RT ARM BUFFET
Nicknames(s) - Bilko, Danny G, Mr Burns
Gifted batsman adept at both opening the innings and standing at first slip. Has had a brace of two year spells at the helm of the first team and now embarks upon his 3rd term of office. One of the now infamous 'Raz Boys' of the early 90's (this group also featured Cornwall golf hero Nick Gadge and Grimsby based club legend Bob Bain). Out-performed on his own stag do by his father and grandfather. Danny's hobbies include cartography and going to the cinema.
|32, RT HAND BAT, RT ARM MEDIUM
Nickname(s) - Once a Season Benson,
London based big hitter Benson will be looking to add to his one appearance (and 3 wickets) of last term. In a move a bit like Ruud Gullits managerial stint at Newcastle when he refused to live on 'The Toon' Smedley will remain at his North London home - a stance which could eventually turn the home support against him and limit his appearances yet again. A product of the same Surrey club which gave us Pete 'Stixon/Queenie' Stoner, Benson allayed fears that he was a 'shandy drinker' of a similar ilk by managing to drink four pints of beer on a recent booze up without giggling like a girl for the rest of the night.
21, RT HAND BAT, RT ARM OFF SPIN
Nickname(s) - Goughy, Chunky
After a season which included his maiden 1st team 50 Ian has spent much of the winter on the treatment table with a worrying back problem. Piscean Byrne spends alot of his free time on the beaches of Wirral with his metal detector and claims to have once found an Olympic Gold medal but then lost it before anyone saw.
21, RT HAND BAT, RT ARM FAST MEDIUM
Nickname(s) - Bing, Woodyatt
This promising Bromborough born speedster is a product of the club's youth policy which flourished in the mid/late 90's. Big things are expected this year of Adam (6 feet, 2 inches). Scared of dogs except for the one out of the film 'Turner and Hooch' which he hopes to meet one day.
30, RT HAND BAT, RT ARM LOLLIPOP
Nickname(s) - Crazyhorse, Teddy Flavour
Gung Ho strokemaker in the David Leatherdale mould. The club's previous captain who spent much of last season in the Southern Hemisphere. Has recently moved to Manchester to get away from the pressures of life at Leverhulme and closer to the majority of our away fixtures. Don't be fooled by the burning effigies of Favill which can still be seen smouldering around South Wirral - the misunderstood genius is a firm favourite with the home support. Ed's pen pal is former Children's BBC presenter Andy Crane.
34, RT HAND BAT
Nickname(s) - Fowju
Had an exceptional season for John Fowler's 2nd XI last term and has left skipper Porno Martell drooling over the prospect of him dishing out the same sort of punishment to Meller Braggins attacks during the coming campaign. A firm favourite with the club's female following, Paul's match fees include an allowance for sales of merchandise featuring his name/image.
29, RT HAND BAT, CHINAMAN BOWLER
Nickname(s) - Porno, Porn Star, The Count
Zambia conceived, Bradford born, Surrey raised. 29 year old former skipper. Snapped up on a long term deal by Sunlight in 1994 after impressing on a two match trial the previous summer. Has got a new bat which he intends to 'let do the talking'.
22, RT HAND BAT, RT ARM LEG SPIN
Nickname(s) - Chimp
Currently being touted as the new Neil Manning, impressed everyone with his miserly and often dangerous spin bowling last term. Matty is rumoured to have recently developed a ball that spins into an even straighter line than it's initial trajectory. Ex con who has seen the light and become a father much like in the Hollywood film '3 Men and a Baby' (but without the 2 extra men or ex con link).
34, RT HAND BAT, RT ARM SPIN
Nickname(s) - Brock, Dutch Imp Fish
The club's most successful modern era skipper, Mark since his time at the helm made limited appearances until last season after becoming a two time father. Impressed with both his form and attitude last term and will be a central figure within the squad this time around. Mark, 48, has never been abroad.
42, RT HAND BAT, RT ARM SWING, WKT
Nicknames - BK Flamer, Phil Mitchell, Moe,
Arguably the club's most important figure as the only fit wicketkeeper except for Blandy and bar manager. Joined son Ryan in his liking for Sandbach's bowling last season and played a vital part in Port's highlight of 2001 - the defeat of the South Cheshire based league champions at Leverhulme in September. Likes: Bitter, Milli Vanilli; Dislikes: People who don't drink a lot of bitter, dwarfs.
17, RT HAND BAT, RT ARM MEDIUM
Nicknames - Zinger, Pies, Sidebottom, Happy Meal, .com
Plucky Junior who was an everpresent in Port's 2001 league campaign. Certainly has a promising future after a season which included figres of 6 for 8 against Barnton. Some club elders claim not to have been so excited about a players prospects since Neil 'Yozzer' Hughes burst onto the scene 5 years ago. It is hoped that, unlike Yozzer, he can resist the lure of the docks of Marseille.
16, Rt hand bat, rt arm off spin
Nicknames - Chaplin, Thomas,
Promising youngster from the same crop as first team veteran Ryan Kearney and fiery paceman Jimmy Roberts. Plucked from John Fowler's team to add steel to the free hitting but vulnerable lower middle order, Falklands veteran Martin also possesses a very safe pair of hands (those of TVs former Record Breakers know-it-all Norris McWurter). Has never had a fight.
32, RT HAND BAT, RT ARM MEDIUM
Nicknames - Kempy, The Silver Springbok
Naturalised South African Graham, or Kempy, joined the Portsiders last summer and proved to be a very useful and popular addition to the first team squad. Yet another Doctor in the Sunlight ranks, Graham stands apart from his medical team mates through an occasional use of common sense. Ambition is to own a van.
28, RT HAND BAT, RT ARM FAST
Nicknames - The Eastham Express, Moon Man
Chris is the leagues fastest bowler by a street (and a long street at that). A couple of hot summers (like we used to have in the old days) and this boy would rip through Meller Braggins batting orders like a butter though knife. Yet to sign up for the coming year, senior club officials are praying that his services can be secured (gate receipts alone would drop by the third without the prospect of one of Chris's 'holding out for the draw' innings). Favourite film - Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.
43, RT HAND BAT, RT ARM SLOW MEDIUM
Nickname(s) - Cheshire
Former Cheshire star who topped the bowling averages in 2001 but fell one wicket short of making the league handbook. One of four former club captains in the first team squad this coming season. Realised lifelong ambition in 1968 when he met childhood hero Charlie Chaplin. Still said to be seething after being out joked at Wrexham in 1997.
17, RT HAND BAT, RT ARM FAST/MED
Nickname(s) - Ewing,
Another bright young hope for 2002 this talented quickie had an impressive season with John Fowler's 2nd XI. Also impressed in his one and only first team outing of the year taking a wicket and a catch before literally crawling all the way from the field to the pavilion after bravely stopping a certain boundary with an outstretched ankle. No relation to Spurs' 80s defensive stalwart Graham Roberts.
22, rt hand bat, lft arm orthodox
Nicknames - Mickey, Phizzer
Highly talented all rounder whose close season acquisition could make a big difference to the Portsiders this term. Phil, a former Wirral and Oxton star, joins good friends Chimp Hill, Adam Crosby and Ian Byrne on the often imtimating and always imposing Leverhulme stage. An imposing figure himself at 6 feet 5 inches, Thomas uses his height away from the cricket field to help out in low danger fire brigade activities such as helping cats out of low trees and looking over fences to see if fires have been fully extinguished.
61, LEFT HAND BAT, LT ARM MEDIUM
Nickname(s) - Tina, Kanga, Brendad, Dad, Grandad
A folk hero at Levrhulme, Woods continues to defy medical science with his energetic displays for Sunners. Won 3 back to back Player of the Season Awards at the turn of the Millennium. Rumoured to be looking keenly for more stuff he can do around Gullivers house. Could have been a professional ice hockey player if he'd wanted to have been.
Newest member of squad, haven't had time to research his past yet so here's a a drawing he did for us.
