International Mail - Sam Crooks
Mon May 1, 2017 9:44AM
Every winter there are Cornwall members chasing the sun and playing a season overseas. We will be bringing you updates in our new segment called 'International Mail'.
First up, Club Legend made famous by the Players Sports Crooksy's Pick segment - Sam Crooks.
Location – Durham
Club – Lanchester Cricket Club
Role in team – Top Order Batsman and Leg Spin Bowler
Highlights thus far – In our second game of the season we were able to have a dominant 10 wicket win over Newcastle City. An awesome team effort but our openers stole the show by chasing down our target of 117 in 14.1 overs.
Travel plans – Visiting my older brother who is in Scotland is definitely on my list and it would be awesome to spend some time in France, Ireland and Germany too.
Goals for the season – Finishing in the Top 4 for the league is an achievable goal for this season and hopefully we can win some knockout cup titles too.
Coming to Lanchester has been a great experience in the short time I've been here already. There is a great Cornwall connection with the club too, both PJ Thomas and Teja Nidamanuru have spent a summer here and four of the current Lanchester lads have spent time at Cornwall. Having a few familiar faces already here has definitely made it easier settling in, but the club as a whole has been outstanding in welcoming me. Our side is undefeated in the two games we have played so far, which is a good start to the season ahead - Sam Crooks.
All the best Crooksy and we look forward to the next update!
