Name: JAMES ROACH

Nickname: JR, Jimmy (only Kim), Rob (only Steveo)
Batsman? Bowler? Keeper? None of the above? Something else : The ultimate combination of slow scoring batsmen and expensive bowler, able to frustrate teammates with bat or ball
Batting style? If it's coming towards the wicket get your bat in the way otherwise swing and miss
General cricketing style? Enthusiastic in the field, enjoys diving and rolling around, similar to the way I play football.
Previous Teams played for? Pentyrch
How long have you been (a) casual? Two seasons
Number of games played for the Casuals? Thirty
What you bring to the Casuals team? Slimness
Who is your Doppleganger? Was once compared to movie star Freddy Prinze jnr who is married to Buffy the Vampire Slayer, now that I wouldn't mind
Favourite food? Much like the teenage mutant ninja turtles I would happily live off pizza
Favourite music? Indie/Grungy Rock
Favourite film? Usual Suspects
Hobbies? Watching football & rugby, playing the odd game of golf, honing my skills on championship manager or pro evolution soccer and watching American tv shows e.g. Lost/24/Prison Break.
Dreaming of making millions as a property tycoon
What was your last DVD / CD purchase?

Lost Season 2 box set / Killers - Sam's Town

What 3 people would you most like to invite to a dinner party?: Kurt Cobain, Kevin Spacey and Evangeline Lilly (Kate from Lost)
Ideal Woman? Kate from Lost
Age you started playing the glorious game? About 7 or 8
Best performance? Putting on a 60 partnership with Goughy at Wenvoe against Barry Strollers, eventually scored 24 and was absolutely knackered.
Favourite game played? There were a couple of fit women at the home game against Colwinstone so that one sticks in the memory.
Favourite venue played …ever? Wenvoe, the pitch seems to compensate for my lack of ability in being able to predict where I might bowl the ball
Cricketer you most admire and why? Brian Lara because of how easy he makes batting look. I used to copy his high back lift but kept getting bowled
Casual cricketer you most admire and why? Any of the bowlers who know where the ball might pitch before they release it from their hand e.g. Dan, Andy H, Paul
Funniest moment on the Casuals field? Probably stopping Dave T from scoring a four while backing up at the non-strikers end against Chartered Trust. Sorry DT!!
Favourite tour moment? N/A
Favourite Tea had as a casual? (Home or Away) Miskin - fine array of cream cakes
I like playing for the casuals because………. The team want to win but it's not the end of the world if we don't, the after match drinks still taste the same.
I hate playing for the casuals because………… Can't think of a reason at the moment.
If I didn’t play so much cricket I’d be………. Brilliant at pro evolution soccer and championship manager
Did you know…. James was a child prodigy in his youth and was hawked around the TV chat shows and radio studios as 'Little Jimmy R'. His freakish speciality was being able to look at a bowl of baked beans or smarties and tell how many were in there. In his travel 'Little Jimmy R' met Wogan, Saville and Glitter - the latter put him off beans for life in such a way that he cannot even venture down that aisle in the supermarket. If you ever get to see old footage of him he will no doubt be trotting out his famous catchphrase 'Hi Im Little Jimmy R and I've bean counting crazy'
