A motley crew of drunks, idiots and ne'er-do-wells. And that's just Amber! It has been said that Armadillos are flea-ridden, smelly, vermin (overheard in the bar). But they are also cuddly, gregarious, fun-loving individuals. We are a very low-ability , equal-opportunity team.
Worryingly 90% of the travellers this year are Brentford season ticket holders and their main (if only) aim is to finish higher than the Stuffed Beavers! 😁
We are all sorry Kevin Antonio is not travelling this year. He will be sorely missed.
Amber Cousens - Ambs to her team
Worries PC to bits when she is out here. No Kevin Antonio (as he is having a year off) to look after her either. Still talking of going to see Jackie and Suzie in Australia in a year or so for a couple of years and the onus will be on them this tour to keep this young Cousens on the straight and narrow to ensure she makes it out to Aussie land!
Garry Derbyshire - Gaz
One of the many Brentford mafia on tour. There's no one left at Griffin Park! Gaz has lent his season ticket to Kevin Antonio who is having a year away from Chiang Mai in an effort to bolster the attendance at their games.
Graham Doggett aka Doggo
Return of the DOG! The man is free again and has no pup in tow. He is off the leash and Chiang Mai should beware. Whilst back to normal in himself, the question of will he score more runs than he gives away in wides is still a grave concern for Kevin Antonio, although Kevin is having a year off. Thailand is looking forward to the normal Dog being back in town.
Neil Hutchison known to his friends as Biff/Mr Grumpy/Mr Sparkle
Unbeknown to Biff he is captain this year with Kevin Antonio taking a year off. Great things are expected of this man and it is hoped his nickname of Mr. Sparkle is shown on the pitch as well as off.
A long standing member of the team and whilst another year older is most certainly another year grumpier. The elder statesman of the team by a long long way.
Paul Cousens aka PC/Headless
Unfortunately due to Kevin Antonio deciding he needs a year off, PC has had to do something himself and muster up a 'team'. He thinks he has enough players but has no idea how many people have actually booked flights. However he is convinced the correct number will turn up.
The mullet is luxuriant and in good nick. The wallet is fully charged ready for the watch sellers. If you see him during daylight hours he will probably be asleep or on his high protein diet (McDonald's).
Robert Harding - known to most as Bob Le Hardon/Boff
First real tour as a player having decided 3 years ago in his only game that he was never going to play again due to the ball going past his nose at about nearly 4 miles an hour. Along with Skeggs, Le Hardon is one of the most generous men in the team and can always be found at the bar buying drinks for all. This year is unusual for Le Hardon as Kevin Antonio is having a year off and Bob will no doubt forget his absence and continue to buy drinks for Kev every night.
Tony Joo - only ever known as Skeggs
On his second trip to Chiang Mai. As Kevin Antonio is having a year off Skeggs has taken Kev's place in the team. Not an easy task as Kevin was the only Armadillo to bowl straight last year!
Skeggs has not played with a ball for nearly 35 years and is most likely to be found (along with Le Hardon) in the bar purchasing the next round instead of being on the pitch.
The only member of the team not to be a Brentford Season Ticket holder, but without doubt will be converted by the end of the tour.
