If you were an overseas player, what are you doing now (current profession, still playing cricket?): I live in Mount Barker (South Australia) and I am a Financial Adviser. I am married to Robyn and have two children under 10. I still play A Grade cricket for Strathalbyn and played my 200th A Grade game for the club last season.

What does ACC mean to you: The one season I played at Attenborough was easily one of the most enjoyable seasons I have ever played in. The ground itself is still the most picturesque and relaxing ground I have ever played at – but most importantly, I will never forget the amazing social aspect of the club and how warmly I was welcomed and accepted in the club and the unforgettable afternoon teas! A lot of great memories.
