Dodgers Player Profiles - Matt Leach

Website founder/guru Matt is another member of Dodgers' Tyke Triangle and the side's lone regular spinner. Not that he turns it much, mind. His idea of a leg trap is deep fine leg, deep backward square leg, deep mid-wicket etc, all of whom ought to wear helmets, and some deliveries are so high they interfere with the radar at Heathrow.

An improving batsman and fielder (with plenty of scope to do so), he represents the Senior Civil Service in the squad, though is quite human despite that.

Domestic duties mean that Matt hasn't played since 2004 which was good news for us but bad news for our opponents who relished his slow non-spinning spin bowling.

Matt supports Leeds United and likes real ale so he's OK with me.

Dodgers Player Profiles - John Doyle

Arguably the founder of Dodgers, Doyleee is an institution. Or should be in one. Agreeing to accept life membership a few years back if he retired, he showed all the modesty and consistency you'd expect of someone who supports Surrey and Manchester United by carrying on playing. Has produced with both bat and ball on occasions when his long-term knee injury permits.

A brief history of Buckhurst

Read the match reports from 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003 plus the
2003 multimedia gallery.

Dodgers grind out traditional end of season Buckhurst Hill draw. Dodgers sealed the traditional end of season draw at Buckhurst Hill as predicted rain came...

Controversy abounds this morning following our failure to beat Buckhurst Hill yesterday. The selectors have sensationally failed to drop Carr or Matthews...

We have secured incoming video evidence of last week's draw against Buckhurst Hill at their place.

More reports from Sept 2004, May 2004, and Dodgers @ Buckhurst Hill , 4 September 2005. Match report by Simon Cousins : Sweltering heat and a slow , low wicket combined to produce a soporific draw...

Pressure cricket
Dodgers' season ended with a hard-fought draw at Buckhurst Hill yesterday. In reply to their 182-4 we were clinging on at 128 - 8 when time ran out.

This year's May fixture was rained off (but not before we got to the ground!) so let's hope for a fine day.
