 RH Fast Medium, RH Bat

Zeeshan is another of the class of 2007. A genuine fast bowler, hist pace and bounce gave the Westquarter attack an edge any time he played. He was also a maverick with the bat who could demoralize a bowling attack pretty quickly with his big hitting.

RHB/RH Leg Spin

Sharath played for the club in 2007 and 2008, contributing some important innings with the bat. He is an intelligent batsman who can also bowl leg-spin, and has one of the safest pairs of hands in the field.

Right Hand Bat / Right Hand Medium Pace Bowler

Jamil played for the club in the 2009 season and he was a dependable fixture in the side with his accurate fast bowling and devastating hitting. He troubled batsmen with pace and bounce, and when he hit it, it stayed hit!

Left Arm Medium Bowler / Left Hand Bat

Colin joined the club from Boroughmuir in 2003 along with his brother, both experienced East League campaigners. Over the next 8 years he was the regular opening bowler who proved effective with his variations of pace and swing, and was the highest wicket taker at the club over this period. Towards the end of his (first) Westquarter spell Colin began to show some promise as a big-hitting lower order batsman, with two fifties to his name in 2008.  He left the club in 2010 to pursue the American dream, and now plays for www.camcricket.com

Akram played in 2006 and bowled some very important spells for the team, notably against Corstorphine and Stenhousemuir, he had little opportunity to contribute with the bat.

 

Right Hand Bat / Wicket keeper

Tariq is a big hitting batsman who can turn a game on it's head in the space of a couple of overs. Although he's an accomplished wicket keeper, he's performed well in the outfield with some excellent catches, and he rarely missed the stumps when presented with a run out opportunity.

Right Hand Bat

Kevin is a specialist slip fielder with great reactions, he has taken more catches than most in the last few seasons. He could get in the side purely for his fielding, but he is also an improving batsman with a wide array of shots.

Right Arm Fast Bowler / Right Hand Bat

A great exponent of the art of bowling, Willie is no doubt one of the all time Westquarter greats. Initially a feared pace bowler, as the years went on and his pace declined, his tactical knowledge and ability to bowl with variety made him a bowler to be reckoned with even in his latter years as a player. He was also a more than useful batsman in the lower middle order or opening the innings when needed. 

Left Hand Bat, RH Slow Medium Bowler 

Arzak made a huge impact in the 2007 season. An attacking lefty, his insistence to playing perfect cover drives wasn't for the Scottish cricket purists, but his team mates have learned to live with this fault and grudgingly accept the hundreds of runs he scored. He was instrumental in the club's league win that year, and has been a friend of the club ever since.

Right Hand Bat

A unique cricketer in the sense that he enjoys doing the scorebook! When he isn't recording the Westquarter innings he is an attacking batsman who can score runs quickly.

Right Hand Bat

Andy played for the club in 2006 after joining from Carlton. He is a solid top order batsman who played some valuable innings in our promotion push. Also an excellent fielder.

Right Hand Bat / Right Arm Medium

Over his years at the club Dougie grew into an all rounder with fast improving batting based on a solid defence and naggingly accurate bowling.  He was frequently called upon to rescue an innings with his resillience. He goes down as one of the better fielders to have played for the club.

Right Hand Medium/Fast,  Right Hand Bat

Another retiree, Sajid was a dangerous bowler and a devastating batsman when he got his eye in. If there was such thing as a 12, Sajid would hit it.

Right Hand Batsman

Craig showed promise with the bat from an early age, and was able to translate this to runs in his final few seasons, finding the boundary with regularity. He had the ability to play shots all round the wicket, and was also one of the best fielders at the club.
