Off the edge: Ian Dixon (Bitton Cricket Club)
Previous clubs: Started playing with my dad, Geoff, at Wick Roman Glass when I was 11, and stayed there until the club folded when I was about 30. I then had a brilliant year with Stothert & Pitt, several seasons with Hanham Mount before they also folded, and came here six years ago.
Honours: I was 12th man for the Youth League's under-17s and ended up playing for Gloucester, who were a man short, against Bristol ... and Martyn Ball got me out! I captained Roman Glass, won player-of-the-year at Stothert & Pitt, and I'm now in my fifth year as captain here. We were promoted three years ago and won the North Somerset Plate last season.

Favourite ground: Here's really nice, while Stothert & Pitt and Lodway are good places to bat on a sunny day.
Best teas: Jane White spoilt us for about ten years at Hanham Mount and then here, she always made sure there was a great selection, you'd never leave hungry. Away, I always enjoy the chicken and rice at Phoenix West Indians, I wish other teams did the same.
Toughest opponent: Mohammad Akram (later to play nine Tests for Pakistan, as well as Surrey and Sussex) turned up in our league one year for NSC and was the quickest I've ever faced. At Cleeve, Anup Kolambkar turns it a lot ... I was guessing every ball for ten overs.
Cricket hero/villain: My dad and his mates at St Marks, who later merged to become Wick Roman Glass, had great banter and gave me the cricket buzz, they're legends to me. I don't really have a villain, I play my cricket hard out in the middle, but always shake hands at the end.
Best and worst cricket memories: The best revolve around playing at Wick with dad and his mates and their sons who became my mates. We had 15 brilliant seasons up there and a great crack. The worst is losing the Youth League's under-17 plate final to Twyford. We were all out for 80 and could not get over the line.
Toughest opponent: Can I go for a team-mate? John Winters was a class batsman, brilliant to watch and I was always glad that I wasn't playing against him. He used to open with my dad, and at Wick they would try to hit a telegraph pole in a field next to the ground ... and often succeed!
Best and worst dressed team-mates: Matt Edwards, one of our young lads, seems to turn up every week wearing a new Fred Perry or a new T-shirt. He could also be the worst dressed because some times he's a bit too garish.
Who spends longest on their hair? Jack Veale's got his own stylist. In the past he's gone for the KP look and the Beckham look and is always trying something different.
