Huw Turbervill

Editor, The Cricketer Magazine

Huw is editor and writer at The Cricketer after 15 years at the Telegraph. He wrote The Toughest Tour: The Ashes Away Series Since the War. After reaching the heady heights of Suffolk IIs, he has concentrated on writing, but still plays friendly stuff and wishes lbws were outlawed. He was also once run out by Mike Gatting in a charity match (“it was never out!”).

James Coyne

Deputy Editor, The Cricketer Magazine

James Coyne has worked for The Cricketer since 2016, when he returned from researching Evita Burned Down our Pavilion: a cricket odyssey through Latin America, which was (finally) released in May 2021. He loves all cricket, but has a particular interest in the Associate nations, dating back to bibulous tours of Eastern Europe in his twenties. Among his other magazine duties he writes the ‘Global Game’ column and has co-edited Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack’s ‘Cricket Round the World’ section since 2012. He also contributed to The Cricketer’s Anthology of the Ashes. At weekends he tries his best to keep up with fitter, younger and better cricketers at Flitwick CC in Bedfordshire.

Geoff Barton

Art Director

Over a twenty-year design career, Geoff has worked on magazines in fields as diverse as classical music, hiking, sailing and the countryside. He was a reader and subscriber of The Cricketer for many years before becoming its Art Director. In summer he can often be found hiking in the Swiss Alps, or enjoying the cricket and a beer at the St Lawrence ground.

David Sharman - Marketing manager

David Sharman

Marketing manager

Dave joined The Cricketer in November 2023. He previously worked as a journalist on regional newspapers (where one of his chief achievements was successfully leading a campaign to get a park in Blackpool named after Harold Larwood) and national trade publication HoldtheFrontPage. We won't talk too much about his cricket ability, which has nosedived spectacularly since a trial for Leicestershire at under-13 level, although he can truthfully lay claim to having a bowling average of seven in the Caribbean.

George Dobell

Chief Correspondent

George first wrote for The Cricketer in 1997. Since then he has been Cricket Correspondent of The Birmingham Post, Spin magazine and, for 10 years, ESPNcricinfo. In between times, he worked for The Guardian and The Times and ghosted Jonathan Trott’s autobiography. He re-joined The Cricketer as Chief Correspondent in November 2021.

Owen Riley - Social media editor

Owen Riley

Social media editor

Owen joined The Cricketer in December 2015 following a work experience placement in the summer. A graduate from the University of East Anglia where he studied American History & Literature, a study abroad year led to a ‘History of Baseball’ class in San Francisco where he attempted to convince the tutor of cricket’s inner beauty, failing miserably, the Oakland A’s fanatic was not having it. A keen skier outside of the cricket season, Owen has fallen down mountains across three continents, working two full seasons in France & Australia.

Nick Howson

Digital editor

Nick joined The Cricketer prior to the sleepy summer of 2019 following spells at Sky Sports, Newsweek Media Group and News UK. He's reported from some of the biggest events in sport, including the Ashes, the Champions League, the Ryder Cup, the Rugby World Cup, the Commonwealth Games, and world championship boxing bouts. A shameless slogger and a rubbish offspinner, Nick spent several years as a teenager at Ashtead CC but tries to limit his outings these days as much as possible. Away from cricket, he's a craft beer snob, a regular festival goer and a fitness obsessive.

Nick Friend

Staff reporter

Nick Friend has worked for The Cricketer since shortly before the 2019 World Cup, when he joined from CNN Sport. He loves a long read and was named the Christopher Martin-Jenkins Young Journalist of the Year for 2020. His cricketing interests stretch as far and wide as the life and times of Maroŝ Kolpak, the T20 Mascot Derby and the associate game in South America, where he spent a year as a 20-year-old as Cricket Argentina’s assistant coach in Buenos Aires. Among his roles, he leads The Cricketer’s coverage of the women’s game and writes regular features on county cricket. In his spare time – if such a thing exists – he captains a team at North Middlesex CC, where he is also a member of the club’s committee.

Oscar Ress

Staff reporter

Oscar joined The Cricketer in June 2024, having previously been on placement between September and December 2022. At the University of East Anglia, he studied Politics and International Relations which included a dissertation on Colonisation and cricket. He has local news experience at News Shopper, covering Millwall and Charlton but most recently produced content for Serious Sport. Oscar’s love for cricket was ignited by a trip to Newlands with his grandfather and most summers since you could find him at either the Oval or Malden Wanderers Cricket Club, where he continues to bowl very slow seam up to varied success.

Rohan Kulkarni - Business development manager

Rohan Kulkarni

Business development manager

In the summer of 2023, Rohan strutted onto the field of The Cricketer, armed with a Master's in Sport Management and an undergrad in Law and a huge passion for cricket, clients and commerce. An opening batsman with zero sixes to his name and a lengthy injury list, he proudly represents Loughborough Outwoods CC. When he isn't playing cricket, Rohan could be found sipping chilled beer, eyes glued to Formula 1 and football (when the cricket isn’t on!)
