Sons of Pitches

Sons of Pitches

Big bunch (size wise) of interesting individuals from Vacy, Newcastle and Sydney in NSW. We have the usual many return visitors. Lovers of cricket, beer, good friends and good conversation although we may be a little hard to understand after a few late nights at the bars in Chiang Mai. Come and say hello we are always up for meeting new friends and old friends as well. This competition has given us the opportunity to support the cricket in Thailand as well as make great friends who we are lucky enough to catch up with each year.

Sons of Pitches Players

  • Adam (NO SHOW/ ANACONDA) Leeming

    IF NO SHOW DECIDES TO SHOW. No show is the man who will visit places that no one should ever enter and has information to prove it. Once again he will baffle the batsmen with his lofty pedestrian paced spin bowling. The man with a bowling plan unknown by all including himself. This year he determined he should be the fine master but we are certain that he will contribute very well in our fine sessions. This man is likely to bring his own support group with him once again although it may be a different support group than last year.

  • Jack (Nudge) Cowled

    Jack (NUDGE) Cowled. Nudge is quite the cricketer, so he believes. The man signs up to play cricket every year and is the only person that spends less time on the park than SPEED. Will be travelling to CM on his own whenever he can get here. Boasts that he has hit Josh Hazelwood for a six but can’t produce the evidence. This man LOVES a drink, if fact he is quite happy to stay in the bath all night with a can. As one of the sponsors he comes to the cricket to ensure his money is well spent. Once again, he is looking forward to another eventful tour.

  • James (Speed) Reynolds

    James "Speed" Reynolds. Has given up his job as the part time Tuk Tuk driver due to the fact he is the big man in the team and now finds it hard to fit into the Tuk Tuk. Don't let this man's name fool you he IS fast. he can outrun a 3-month-old child (Slightly faster than chef). He has once again been given permission to leave the family home. Loves a beer while watching or playing cricket so he's in the right place for a good time. Has promised once again to ensure the bar at the ground is well supported.

  • Jason (the wombat) Hicks

    Jason (WOMBAT) Hicks– this guy wouldnt remember what a cricket bat was, but we are sure that he will get back on the horse for the tournament. Has volunteered to sit out and not play but does realize the cost of not participating in the comp at the fine session. Wombat is expected to need support throughout the tournament due to late nights and early mornings with way to much alcohol use as pain relief. Wombat has been visiting Thailand in between sixes working with his support group to prepare for the grueling week ahead. This eating machine will be working on trying every Thai dish in town. Currently counting the days as he believes there are too many minutes to count down.

  • Mark (what is his nickname) Wood

    Mark (WOODY, WOOD HE, WOODSEY SHOULD HE) Wood. This man has had more names than Cassius Clay. Tour number unknown and he doesn't even know how many times he has visited the Land of Smiles. Our Miniature wicket keeper has the ritual from hell to get ready for the game. the strapping and support he wears is enough to keep the space shuttle held together. The bus leaves 1/2Hr early just so he can get ready. We appreciate his speed behind the stumps to save some runs but the main reason we love him behind the stumps is because he doesn't know how to bowl to save his live.

  • Slavko (Slav) Erak

    Slavko (SLAV) Erak. Many people would know the Slav (AKA Richard Rattenbury) from previous trips he is an unforgettably individual . The man that is always on a mission unfortunately sometimes even he is unsure what mission he is on. Has once again requested the assistance of his beautiful wife Pene to get him around after a few vodka redbulls. Will once again enjoy the company of good friends’ great cricket and a beer or two. One thing is for sure he will again have a great time during the tournament

  • Warren (WOKKA aka PO) Pugh

    Warren (WOKKA aka PO) Pugh. The big lovable lad from Stocko. Has been know to enjoy a game of cricket and a LEO or two but is famous within our team and with some of the other cricketers for his work on the dance floor to Kung Fu fighting and the devil went down to Georgia. so if you see him out and hear the music he wont be far away. The big fella is pretty handy with the bat and ball and is always a welcome addition to the team

Sons of Pitches Supporters

  • Keith (Chef) Roddom

    Keith(CHEF) Roddom. Santa Claus is coming to town, The lovable larrikin chef has returned once again, we are confident in chefs drinking abilities to upset many who wish to drink with him as he has drunk many people under the table over the years. Chef only wishes to be a supporter this year but may make a return to the crease to destroy the Malaka's bowling line up once again. We are positive that he will influence some peoples cricketing ability this year with a session or two.

  • Penne Erak

    This lovely lady has a heart of gold and the strength of nobody we know. She loves her man SLAV and puts up with the altered ego Richard Rattenbury. She will watch over Slav during their time in Thailand only, so he doesn't wind up in jail or something stupid. we are confident Penne will get the other half home at some stage and hopefully in one piece.
