Player Profile - Phil McBarron

McB in full-on attacking mode...McB is the archetypal Yorkshire opening bat - stubborn, mean, technically proficient, arrogant and wouldn't score quickly unless you paid him in beer.

Rightly famed for his ability to score singles off the last ball of every over and never running more than he absolutely has to, Phil has been a fixture in the Dodgers set-up since our birth. Formerly a key member of the seam attack, his advancing years have restricted him to serving up the occasional handful of pies when we're desperate.

He's an excellent close-to-the-wicket catcher, but woe betide you if you think he's going to chase anything the trickles off the square...

Dodgers most popular player (Que? Ed.) had a bit of a resurgence this season with the bat and the ball.
