The Rt. Hon. Craig
Cuthbert Weston Q.C. (true-ish!) joined WECC during
1999 and the triumvirate of him, "Johnno"
and Ben form the new youth in the
club, which has made a happy man very old. Coming from a sporting family
Craig shows promise with both bat and ball. He times the
ball well with the willow and it's been said (probably by Dazza)
that as a bowler, Craig enjoys a good length. One Millennium game saw the deaf opposition
scorer mark down Craig the bowler as "Stevenson!" Not even close.
More recently Craig has displayed a talent with the gloves, and shown
more than a little ability as a wicketkeeper.
his first tour (1999) as a "Tour Virgin", even sharing the journey down in the
company of our esteemed President. Both looked
forward with trepidation to their initiation ceremony, especially as we can find a
plentiful supply of goats at our disposal. Only joking, it's Sheep in Cornwall....(Don't go there - Ed).
tour is one to remember, if only because the others stitched him up. Recall the Blottery, if you will.
Craigs' numbers were 1 through to 6. Shame when four came up in one draw, followed by
three the very next round (Who's next round? - Ed). He should have known better for Jowalliker
once tried this trick of 1 - 6 in Cornwall. He genuinely thought the chances of many
combinations of those numbers coming up were small. How wrong he was, although then it
truly was the laws of chance. Honest, Guv.
true sportsman to the end, Craig was batting in a recent game and the bowler rapped his
pads, appealing for LBW in the most positive fashion. No sooner had the Umpire's finger
gone up when Craig replied "Fair enough!" and off he trotted. Hmmm. Well, WE
thought it was funny at the time. AND we hadn't had a drop, goodness we are slipping...
