First Team Years played

We know most of our readers love a good stat when they see one – we’ve been working on:

  • How many players have played at least one first team game for the club?
  • How many years have certain people been playing?

Below are your answers – There have been 798 players to play in First Team League cricket for the club, (including sub pros).

Unsurprisingly Chris Bleazard (still going) took the lead last year with 35 years.

Below you can search for your or a players name and it will show you their record.

*** The only slight anomaly is players which have left for short stints and since returned – this is counted in their total years
