Player Profiles

Club President

George took over the reigns as club president in 2014, and he has been an asset to the club since with his contributions in all areas.

Club Secretary

RHB / RH Off Spin / Wicket Keeper

Stephen is the longest serving playing member of the club and second highest run scorer in club history. His occasional off-spin is even more occasional as he has now taken over the wicket keeping duties from his brother.

Club Treasurer

Helen keeps control of the club finances and has been key in controlling budgets for the Nursery build. As the players will agree Helen also makes a mean spicy Halal chicken sandwhich for tea!

Club Captain

Right Hand Bat / Right Hand Fast Bowler

A genuine all-rounder who can cause problems with his quick bowling and is devastating with the bat. Since joining in 2006 Hamad has been one of the highest run-scorers at the club, and has refined his bowling over time to become one of our key bowlers. In 2010 Hamad took on captaincy duties and continues to perform this role well, winning the Presidents Trophy with the club and leading the team to some impressive league finishes.

Junior Coach

Right Hand Bat / Right Hand Off Spin

Umar joined Westquarter in 2004 and in over a decade of service to the club he has shown he can score runs in the top and middle order. Over the years he has developed from a lower order batsman to a dependable opener who is invaluable to the club not just for the runs he scores, but for the enthusiasm and vast knowledge of the game he possesses. Umar has put in considerable work over the last few years to set up  the junior section, which is bearing fruit in the form of youngsters making their first XI debuts and in the promotion of cricket in Forth Valley.
