A resident of rival village Ardington, Peter has been an ardent supporter of E&WH CC. He held the position of Chair for many years and in 2020 was elected to President. Knees and hips allowing, Peter still likes to position himself at slip for the 2nd XIs and even bowls the odd over. Peter supports all the teams, junior and senior, and has an uncanny knack for arriving just in time for match tea!
Liam joined E&WHCC in 2017 and quickly took on a very proactive role, initially as Captain of the 2nd XI, and in 2020 was also elected to the role of Chair. Liam was instrumental in the success of the All Stars programme in 2019 such that the club will be running both All Stars (5-8 years) and Dynamos (8-11 years) programmes this year. Recognising the need to nurture and develop the youth teams, Liam has introduced some of the U13 &U15 players to senior cricket. Liam has finally found someone to take on the role of 2nd XI Captain which he held for the last 4 years!
Secretary, U11s Coach
Everyone knows Ivan! Not only is he East Hendred born and bred, cricket runs through his veins like blood. Ivan has played cricket for E&WHCC for more years than he would like to acknowledge and regularly flits between the 1st & 2nd XI. If he's not playing, Ivan is coaching the U11s along with Pete Beckley and if he isn't doing any of those, along with his partner in crime Pete, he is maintaining E&WH's fabulous cricket ground - which was voted best OCA ground by visiting teams.
Welfare Officer & Umpire
Like chalk and cheese, Duncan's approach is somewhat calmer and than his brother Jon's! That said, he is no less passionate about cricket and E&WHCC. Duncan has been integral to the success of the club over 35 years having played for 1st XI and 2nd XI and coached the U11s for 9 years before taking on the U15s. He is now the Club's Umpire, Fixture Secretary and Welfare Officer and in 2023.
He is a busy man!
After more than 20 years as Treasurer, Helen Francis has handed over the baton to Elizabeth. We are hugely grateful for everything Helen did to keep the Club's finances on track. Like Helen, Elizabeth is in attendance at the Club every week and can be found either scoring a match, serving at the bar or taking photos so there is no escaping her!
Not an official official, but an absolutely key member of E&WHCC, full of character, charm and enthusiasm, Peter encourages the U11s to deliver their very best. He is often seen sporting several hats and pairs of glasses as well as holding an odd jumper or two as he umpires the U11 matches. As a stalwart of the 2nd X1 we see a different side to Pistol Pete! Competitive and driven he gives 100% of himself each game yet manages to continue to nurture and encourage the juniors who may be playing. When he has a spare moment (read many, many hours) Pete works with Ivan to maintain the beautiful ground.
