John Orchiston

1st XI Captain

John was new to the club last season, and has fitted in brilliantly around the team. So much so, that he will captain the 1st XI in 2023. With plenty of seasons under his belt playing in the Leicestershire league, we look forward to John's tenure at EWHCC. 


Andrew Franics

1st XI Vice Captain

Andrew has been part of the club for about as long as is possible, his patents brought him down to watch a match when he was just 3 days old! Now a key member of the 1st XI scoring over 800 runs last season including 3 centuries. Andrew captained the 1XI in 2022 and which saw them promoted to Division 3A, this season he has taken up the role as vice captain, along side his other important roles as "fines master" and "team DJ".

Liam Rainbow

2nd XI Captain

2023 will be Liam's first year as 2nd XI captain, as he takes over from Andy Broadbent. Liam has previously captained our Wednesday night T20 team, and he won the 2nd XI batting award last season.

James Hilliam

2nd XI Vice Captain

James has been playing for the club for several years now, and we were happy to see him offer up his services to the 2's vice captain role. We've no doubt that he and Liam can carry on the success and good times around the team this year.  


Dan Atkins

3rd XI Captain

In 2021 Dan took on the challenge of captaining the newly formed 3rd XI which proved challenging but hugely rewarding. He's done it ever since! and is continuing in 2023. With two young sons also members of the club, thankfully Dan will be an integral part of the club for many years to come! 


Josh King

3rd XI Vice-Captain

Josh joined us a couple of years ago, and is a league and T20 regular. He's offered up his support to help run the 3's with Dan this year, and we're glad to have him on-board.


Archie Napper

1st XI - Downs League Captain

We are delighted to have Archie on board whenever he can be spared from ploughing the fields. Our big hitting farmer had the best T20 average last season, helped mostly by his 50-ball century on the final game. It is through Archie that we have the much appreciated sponsorship of the senior teams from Q Gardens. In 2021 Archie took over the leadership of T20 team and he's carried on ever since.

Robin Alner

2nd XI - Downs League Captain

If the stats from 2022 are anything to go by, there should be no underestimating what Robin can do! He scores runs, takes wickets and catches catches. On top of that, this year Robin will also be skipper of the T20 2nd XI.

Archie Leishman

Friendlies (Sunday) Captain

Archie has been captain of the junior teams from U11 - U15 and at 16 this will be his first senior captaincy.  'Senior' being the operative word as not only is Sunday cricket a great opportunity for some of the juniors to learn the ropes in senior games, but some of our most 'senior' members of the club enjoy a Sunday game so it isn't unusual to see a team made up of players aged 13 - 80. 


Alicia Bosley

Ladies Captain
