Rob, more commonly known as ‘Dev’ is the youngest member of the team.
Born in 1983, in the east end, he first fell in love with the game when his dad taught him to pad up to balls pitching out side the leg stump at the tender age of 5!
After reading about Larwood and bodyline he decided that England needed a new fast bowler, he set about this task by bowling over after over at his vastly more talented older brother in the family garden. By the time of the millennium very few panes of glass in the greenhouse remained and the dream for, him at least, was over.
He does however provide a batting practice service every Saturday afternoon to teams in the Essex area by opening the bowling for Fords Cricket club. His love and passion for the game are boundless and he provides the voice of the ‘Nasser’ generation of cricket fans.
