“Losing some players, it’s not been easy. But it’s something I’ll keep doing for as long as possible. I’m definitely enjoying it”
We enjoyed the company of Clayton West captain Alex Clegg on this week’s Castle Hill Cricket League podcast (episode 6). Alex is also a wicketkeeper and has risen through the ranks, starting as a junior before ending up as one of the most influential players at the club; the first team skipper. As wicketkeeper he’s accounted for over 150 victims since 2012 and just recently chalked up his biggest first team score with a 144 opening the batting at home to Shelley.
The regular contributors Andrew Crawshaw and Steve Whitwam also divulged the keepers who they’ve considered the best in the league over the years for ‘The Opener’ and the listeners sent in plenty of suggestions themselves.
We also had a packed cricketing schedule to unpack and review as Thongsbridge nipped clear at the top in these early stages and Hoylandswaine emphatically shrugged off the defeat which saw plenty of talking points last week and Alex gave us his opinions on Clayton West’s defeat at Rastrick and the start to the season that his team have made.
