Player Profiles #8 - Carl Knight

Photography by Karen Barker.

Playing role: 4th team vice captain, opening bat & point fielder. Stay positive and encourage the youngsters.

Batting style: Patient (see off the opening bowlers & new ball and punish any poor bowling).


Bowling style: Accurate and underrated.


Highest score
: 120 not out v Thrumpton (on Long Lane).


Best bowling figures: Only bowled 2 overs in 132 4th team matches & one of them was a maiden & included a drop catch at mid on (Joe Gibson).


Amateur cricketing hero(es): Andy Waddle, Sam Conners, Tom Black & Ben Black.


Favourite cricketer: Richard Hadlee, Clive Rice, Mike Proctor & Sachin Tendulkar.


Favourite ACC moment: Playing Lambley with a team of youngsters with very little batting experience and carrying my bat for 45 overs with 9 men down and scoring the the grand total of 29 not out (they described it as a posh net!). We lost by 130 odd.


Favourite movie: Pulp Fiction (what do you expect from someone born in St Anns!).


Favourite meal: Pizza.


Biggest passion/hobby outside of cricket: Junior cricket coaching / Rugby League and park runs (PB 22.58).


What does Attenborough Cricket Club mean to you
: Playing the best game at the best club with the best people. ACC til I die.
