Players

Carl Clemenson

Carl Clemenson

Clem made his 1st XI debut for Kilve at the ripe old age of 13, elevated through the ranks as their was literally no-one else who could play! Probably the quickest bowler in the league when firing on all cylinders, Clem is a natural athlete, well known for his ability...

Gary Stone

A new acquisition for Kilve for the 2010 season, Gary has played for Bridgwater and Cannington before securing his ‘dream move’ to Sea Lane. A natural classy batsman with a great eye, he also excels at delivering a bamboozling range of spinning, seaming, swinging and...
Cris Taylor

Cris Taylor

Cris joined Kilve at the beginning of the 2009 season and started in style, retiring in the 80’s in a pre-season friendly. As well as being a man with a wealth of cricket knowledge (and dubious fashion sense!), Cris is a passionate club man and has been instrumental...
Ryan Penwell

Ryan Penwell

Ryan has been with Kilve for a couple of seasons now and has become a fantastic opening bowler who extracts plenty of movement from the new ball. When he’s on form he can be unplayable, especially when the clouds are hovering overhead. Ryan’s batting has come on leaps...
Glen Manchip

Glen Manchip

Glen has been at Kilve since he was knee high to a grasshopper, able to reminisce about the heady days of success and playing with Dave Cobb. Glen sports a worn out bat as big as you’ll see, partly because it’s a magic wand in his hands, but also because he’s far too...

Paul Cuff

Cuffy is another lifelong Kilve player, having played for the club since he was a boy. An adaptable batsman who can play anywhere in the order, he’s also a mean bowler due to his height extracting bounce from the most benign wickets. Cuffy is a sleeping giant in the...

Andy Rock

Resident hippie Andy Rock has been a Kilve player for quite a few years now and has been a fantastic club man, whether it’s sourcing funding to improve facilities, running the youth setup with Martin James, or wearing a hilarious ‘Little Beau Peep’ style bonnet...
Quinton Button

Quinton Button

Joining Kilve for the 2010 season, resident alien Quinton has followed his good mate Gary to Sea Lane from Cannington. A left arm bowler who likes to get the batsman playing his shots, he’s more than capable of swinging the ball both ways – as long as his back doesn’t...
Chris James

Chris James

Chris has played for the club for quite a few years now, and due to his quiet nature has probably said less than a hundred words to anyone else but his sidekick Jay in that time! Don’t let his cool persona fool you though, he’ll have the ball bouncing around your neck...

Martin James

Martin moved to Kilve with his family from Northampton, and has settled into village life like a pair of old slippers. Along with Rocky and Cris, Martin is heavily involved with the youth setup, spending a lot of time at the ground coaching and ferrying the juniors...
Pete Stone

Pete Stone

Pete is bit of a Jekyll and Hyde-type batsman, being content to see off the new ball with endless patience and a ‘Boycott desire to occupy the crease, mixed with some spontaneous power shots and carves through point that see the ball flying to the boundary...
James Payne

James Payne

Coming to the game at a relatively late age of 28, it’s taken him a few seasons to get used to the game. He did have dreams of being the next Shane Warne, but ultimately the only thing he had in common with him was his waistline and a rapidly thinning barnet. After he...
