Almar Players

  • Bevan Capes

    Bevan is a sixes 'virgin'. He is a manufacturer of fine leather goods. This nose for leather has often helped in the search for his just delivered slow leggy. He lives his life by the 3 P's although these P's he aspires to is beyond us all. In his cricket it seems to mean Pop in, Prod and Perish.

  • Chris Verster

    Chris is back for his 3rd sixes and hoping its third times a charm. Although a teacher and with his new hip now fully functional much will be expected from him. More suited as carriage driving ballast he will be aiming to navigate his way to produce some sporting acts of mediocrity.

  • Dax Bailey

    Dax is back for another try. If Dax could play cricket like he talks it we would have a superstar in the making. Last year Dax showed impressive skills with his shot selection and even bowling a maiden over. Unfortunately these all took place in the 'Mars Bar'. Here's hoping he can transfer these stellar performances to the pitch.

  • MC Laubscher

    Nowadays when someone says 'Nice shot' to MC they are talking about his photography. He will be using his skills developed as a police detective to try and locate his long time missing cricketing ability. He will be needed to provide some resemblance of stability to the team both in front and behind the stumps as well as to Dax after a long night out.

  • Neil Strybis

    Neil's cricketing days are long behind him and he has moved into team management. After inheriting the position through cronyism he looks to herald in a new era of dictatorship. Though it is still to be seen whether he can fulfil his tasks while serving another master himself.

  • Ron Nes

    Ron's cricketing talent is as mythical as his Scottish namesake and seen only slightly less. As captain and opening batsman he will be looked on to hold the team together, very much like his lycra onesie does for himself. His Aussie dollar will again be utilized by his fiscally challenged Rand spending teammates.

  • Sean Rossouw

    Sean is another 'virgin' to the sixes and in his eyes an esteemed keeper. He claims to have opened the batting with Gary Kirsten once. Although this was as a schoolboy and still remains the pinnacle of his cricketing career. Known to enjoy a beer while waiting to bat his unfinished tin has never been warm on his return.

  • Stephen Gersowsky

    Steve is our 3rd 'virgin' tourist and believes he has all the attributes to be a success. All his teammates are doubting Thomas's on this point. As a restaurateur by trade his bowling has provided a buffet for opposing batsmen to feast on and his batting has been meat and drink to opposing bowlers. We wish him well.

Almar Supporters

  • Susan, Sally, Shirley, Louise and Charmaine.

    Can be seen wandering the ground with vodka daiquiris in hand and genteelly supporting their men from the Almar tent. They are also never adverse to accepting drinks offered by those they meet crawling the bars of an evening around Chiang Mai.
