Iain ‘Senior’ Messenger

Cricket can sometimes be a drag, especially when you’re not doing quite so well and this is why every team needs a Senior! There is never a dull moment with Seniors one-liners, anecdotes and general hilarious overtones. Blessed with a natural lack of pace, Senior can do without this as he always seems to be in the right place at the right time. Hands like shovels and a chest as big as Giant Haystacks, if he doesn’t catch it, he certainly stops it. Iain is also a handy bowler and is deadly at that halfway point when the batsmen are looking to increase the run rate. His slow, foxing deliveries have had the best of batsmen in trouble and are truly difficult to play. Iain is a fantastic bloke to have around and his stories down the pub have become stuff of legend. If you ever wonder which player he is, just look at square leg and the guy chatting intently to the umpires is he, the scared looked on the umpires face is brilliant!
