David Baker Confirms Bugbrooke Transfer

2 Feb 2018 by Matt Baker

After much deliberation Dave Baker has recently notified the HCC Committee that he intends to play his cricket at Bugbrooke St Michaels 74 next year.

This isn’t entirely unexpected. Dave has a number of close friends who play their cricket at Bugbrooke and, despite his best efforts to bring them to Heyford, has now decided to make the move in order to play with them

Dave is and always will be a Heyford legend.

He has been one of the main driving forces behind club fundraising in recent years, running Fantasy Cricket, annual Quiz Nights and of course the ever-popular Eurovision Club Nights! Dave has even offered to run the 2018 Quiz Night.

On the pitch Dave has always contributed wickets (177 in total) and usually contributed runs! Although he was a 2nd XI regular Dave was willing to step up into the 1st XI when required, always performing superbly.

For the last two seasons Dave has captained the 2nd XI, where he has been fundamental in helping to nurture some of our promising youngsters.

On behalf of all Heyford players and supporters, all the best at Bugbrooke. You’ll be missed around the club, but thank you very much for all of your efforts over the years. Look forward to seeing you at nets (which we are sharing with Bugbrooke!)…
