Stuffed Beavers Players

  • Bob “Manao” Gall

    3rd Tour. A change in tactics for the hard-hitting shaven-headed batsman as he is introducing the lovely Polly to the delights of Chiang Mai. This is not in any way expected to reduce demand for vodka manao during the course of the week. Will also be lobbying hard for the wicket-keeping gloves.

  • Chas "Beggers" Begley

    9th Tour. Foiled again in his bid to retire to the Committee Room, Chas will once again be churning out his mysterious left arm medium pace. With fatherhood on the horizon for the third time, he will soon have nearly as many children as career runs.

  • Chris “If I see that bloke Ramos again…” Coombes

    Debut Tour. Keep your friends close and your enemies closer. After a number of years of having his wife stalked by Tony Ramos, Chris has joined the Beaver ranks to keep a closer eye on him. Only trouble is, he’s not touring this year…. Handy with the bat and gloves, but has been known for throwing occasional pies when asked to step up and bowl

  • Mark “Crown Jewels” Robinson

    Debut Tour. Another high-profile transfer from the UN Irish Pub. A jewellery expert with a cricketing pedigree from the county of Sir Geoffrey and Lord Sachin, Mark is more of a reluctant batsman and demon bowler. Rumour has it that he can “hit the wall” early during slammer sessions….

  • Mark “Felix” Sayers

    3rd Tour. Return of the BOTY! Last year’s Beaver of the Year, awarded in recognition of both his incisive bowling and outstanding karaoke, Mark makes a welcome return from the foothills of the Pyrenees. Can be relied upon to bowl straight, sing lustily and fall asleep at any moment.

  • Nigel “Gurners” Gurney

    9th Tour. There are at least 61 reasons why Nige shouldn’t be touring this year. But like Chas, he’s not quite made it to the safety of the Committee Room. Look out for regular scraps in the Beaver tent about who gets to keep wicket

  • Paul “Bart” Simpson

    6th Tour. After a couple of years’ absence, Bart makes an overdue return to top up his phone bill and clock up a year’s worth of massages in one week. That, and indulge in a healthy dose of goose-swinging. Another specialist wicket-keeper.

  • Pete “Boycie” Guerin

    2nd Tour. A late debutant last year after saving the day when we were a Beaver down, it’s fingers crossed that Pete will be available for the full tour this year. The alternative is a wind-swept oil rig in the North Sea, so seems like a no-brainer to us… Fun loving vivacious Aussie with a laugh like a certain used-car salesman from Only Fools & Horses.

  • Simon “App-Man” Williams

    Debut Tour. CM Sixes virgin, but has looked promising in the pre-sixes preparation on and off the pitch, not least when firing an RPG in Cambodia whilst drinking a Vodka and smoking a Cuban cigar.

Stuffed Beavers Supporters

  • “Orange” Ellis de Ruiter

    nth Tour. The Dutch branch of the SBCC fan club will be well-represented again and we are resigned to being endlessly reminded of Holland’s superior record over England in recent years.

  • Ariya Begley

    3rd Tour. Ariya has been steeped in cricket since birth and may even pop in to watch a game, in which case the pressure will be on as she is undoubtedly as critical a spectator as her sister.

  • Baby Noah

    Debut Tour. First, hopefully of many, CM sixes for young Noah. Not sure the Beavers’ tent is the best place to learn the finer points of the game, but everyone’s got to start somewhere…..

  • Ella Begley

    4th Tour. Her attendance at the Sixes may be constrained by her academic commitments this year, but we still expect a no-nonsense critique of the day’s play when she is able to attend. It’s only a matter of time before she takes her Dad’s place in the team.

  • Genghis Begley

    0th Tour. Will be with us on a technicality as he’s not due until the summer, but it’s never too early to introduce youngsters to the game, right?

  • Maiken Hjulgaard

    nth Tour. The SBCC’s highly gifted Danish photographer will have her hands full this year following the arrival of young Noah to the ranks, but we’re hoping Maiken will still be able to enjoy the highs and lows of a week cheering on the Beavers.

  • Polly Davies

    Debut Tour. Avid cricket fan Polly has been preparing for her first sixes experience by extensively researching cookery courses and making intricate plans for sunbathing and shopping.

  • Rachel “Jonesy” Begley-Begley

    8th Tour. The SBCC’s staunchest, most loyal and undoubtedly longest-suffering supporter. Her knowledge of cricket has progressed exponentially since those early days cheering on the Malthouse in Stanmore and her encyclopaedic grasp of some of cricket’s lesser-known statistics will take your breath away.

  • Steve “Ball by Ball” Harris

    nth Tour. After the success of Steve’s ball-by-ball Facebook commentary on the SBCC-Sapa fixture last year, we’re hoping for more of the same to reach out to our global fan base this year.
