Player Profile - Neil Priest

Priest and Carr looking to better times for DodgersPriesty has been the side's premier batsman since our inception and is the only regular player to score a ton - including one in a 20-over game.

Belligerence is his byword and he gives his wicket away about as often as Benn gives money to charity.

Famous for decrepit kit and putting on more weight than his missus during her pregnancy, Neil has deputised for Cap'n Carr for the past few seasons, mainly to give him an excuse to stand at slip for the entire match.

A rare bowler these days, Neil bowls left arm spin at about twice the pace of our main seamers. Rumoured to have been a better player when he still smoked.

Vice-Captain Neil enjoyed a fine season in 2004, scoring the most runs and finishing top of the batting averages. Despite an absence of many major scores, Priesty scored consistently and had very few failures. Continues to hone in on Inzaman's world record for the highest aggregate number of hours spent standing motionless at slip, aided and abetted by Captain Carr.
