Name: JAMIE PIKE
Weight: Fluctuates. But has dropped since the season finished to a healthy 12st 9!
Nickname: Pikey, The Pikester, Piko, Pikelett. Andy F calls me Scouse.
Batsman? Bowler? Keeper? None of the above? Something else : Batsman I suppose. Can bowl but generally don't
Batting style? Quite stylish on my day. That day doesn't come very often
General cricketing style? Relaxed - unless I'm wrongly given out. Which with our crap umpiring is nearly every week! Can be competitive - but obviously not as much as Goughy
Previous Teams played for? Bootle CC, The Ospreys, Pike's Penguins, DWP
How long have you been (a) casual? Seven months
Number of games played for the Casuals? 16 I think
What you bring to the Casuals team? My kit, a few runs, and sometimes a smile
Who is your Doppleganger? SteveO confuses me with Rob Sage nearly every game. But then SteveO is just confused. I get compared to everyone with dark hair, good and bad, but my favourite is John Cusack
Favourite food? Love apple pie and custard. Italian food
Favourite music? Love all sorts of music. But favourite bands are Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Radiohead, Super Furry Animals, Depeche Mode and the Cure. Also love Kate Bush and PJ Harvey.
Favourite film? One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest/The Usual Suspects.
Hobbies? Reading, theatre, cinema, travelling, running, sitting in the pub, watching football, eating out.
What was your last DVD / CD purchase?

DVD was City of God, CD was The Editors "The Back Room".

What 3 people would you most like to invite to a dinner party?: Richie Benaud, Samuel Beckett and Nick Cave. Cricket and existential despair go hand-in-hand!
Ideal Woman? Uma Therman
Age you started playing the glorious game? 10
Best performance? 62 not out at Colwinstone.
Favourite game played? Miskin Manor
Favourite venue played …ever? Old Trafford as a schoolboy for Bootle, or Liverpool CC - one of Bradman's favourite grounds in England.
Cricketer you most admire and why? Wasim Akram for his genius with the ball and aggression with the bat. Hero as a kid was Richard Hadlee. Brilliant seamer
Casual cricketer you most admire and why? Andy F because he turns up every week, bats number 11 and hardly ever bowls due to a shoulder injury but gives his all (and there's a lot of him) in the field. If that isn't love for cricket, I don't know what is.
Funniest moment on the Casuals field? Watching Paul going out to bat in his Jesus sandals. Foxy shouting to Goughy as Gough calls a third run "Fuck off Goughy!" resulting in the wee man being run out by 15 yards.
Favourite tour moment? A pissed Richie and Dan trying to bunk one another up to a window so they could get in the hotel bar at 3am. Or Foxy asleep in the dodgy night club. Or the look on Dan's face when he arrived for breakfast late pissed out of his head. .
Favourite Tea had as a casual? (Home or Away) Miskin Manor
I like playing for the casuals because………. They are a sound group of blokes who make you feel welcome and are equally shit at cricket.
I hate playing for the casuals because………… The horrendous sights in the showers afterwards. Gives me nightmares.
If I didn’t play so much cricket I’d be………. Busy being really shit at some other sport.
Did you know…. Jamie was junior line dancing champion in his native Liverpool, sparking the obvious debate from family and friends that he must 'bat for the other side'. It can now be confirmed after many years that he does not, even though his batting for our side is particularly ropey! Keep that elbow high Pikey!
