Profile

Occasional skipper, tour superintendent and in the early days Bodley's Mr. Consistency, Stuart strove hard to make the coveted No.11 spot his own thanks to some spectacular hitting - inevitably straight into the hands of a nearby fielder. A cultured 2 not out in the first Cambridge match seems so improbable nowadays, a fading memory framed in aspic. Bowling and appealing gets Stuart into the team - our loudest performer by far, the Ackland haka has unnerved many a weak-willed batsman into submission. In more recent years Stuart has taken to batting more keenly, perfecting a unique approach that begins with taking a guard on the adjacent pitch, and then stepping back some more before swiping at the ball with the underside of the bat. Never happy on the pitch, and even more pessimistic off it, Stuart is nonetheless the beating heart of the club.
