Kelan Florentine

Get to know the new lad as he lifts the lid on his love affair with FIFA. The idea is simple: 26 questions, one for each letter of the alphabet.

A - AWAY - What is your favourite away ground you have played at?

Settle is always a nice place to play Cricket on a nice day. Monton near Manchester is probably the best Ďgroundí Iíve played on.

B - BANTER - Who has the best banter at the club?

Phil Sykes

C - CLUB - What football team do you support?

Blackburn Rovers unfortunately

D - DINING - What would be your last 3 course meal?

Probably have to be Calamari to start, Steak and Chips for main and Sticky Toffee Pudding to finish

E - EVENINGS - A quiet night in with the missus or a night out with the lads? Why?

Havenít got a missus so I will have to go with a Away Day with the lads

F - FOREIGN - What is your favourite holiday destination?

Gold Coast, Australia. Serious place

G - GAME - Whatís the best game of cricket you have ever played in?

Ramsbottom Cup Semi Final for Cherry against Brooksbottom probably 5 years ago. We needed 6 to win off 2 balls, 9 wickets down. Nas Iqbal won it with a 6

Golf and Football usually. Bit of Fifa too.

People who film their steering wheel with a tune on while they drive. Proper melts

M - MUSIC - What is your favourite type of music and what is your favourite song?

Donít really have a favourite type but Iím partial to a bit of Rap. Stormzy - ShutUp would be my go too

N - NICKNAME - Whatís your nickname and whatís the best one youíve ever heard?

Not many that can be told on this sort of thing. KFlo is one that has stuck from my time in Aus

O - OPTIMISM - How do you think Church will do this year? League? T20? Cup?

Hopefully a good chance in all 3. League is obviously the priority Iíd say. Iíd imagine we have a real good chance of going up, preferably as Champs.

P - PETS - Do you have any pets?

1 Dog. Finlay. Whoís a Boxer

Q - QUALITY - Who is the best player youíve played with and against? Why?

Best played against is probably Christian Jonkerr I think his name was, who sub proíd for Harwood against us at Cherry. He smashed 150. Best Iíve played with is probably Ferisco Adams, who was pro at Cherry. He had some serious talent

R - RAPID - Whoís the quickest bowler youíve faced?

Not much above 60mph in the Ribb League so it would have to be some randoms over in Aus, who tried hitting me on the head for being a ĎPomí

S - STRANGE - Whatís the weirdest thing youíve seen in your life?

Levi getting a wicket and not giving a send off.

T - TELEVISION - What do you like to watch on the box?

Usually Sport is all I watch but Iím partial to a bit of Corrie on catch up

U - UNKNOWN - Tell us something that we donít know about you.

My first senior wicket at Cherry was Zaidi at the age of 15. Bounced him out (Iíll remind him of it over the summer).

V - VIDEO GAMES - Do you play any games consoles? If so, how often and what do you play?

I do. Way too much too. Only really play Fifa when I havenít broken my controller because of it

W - WORLD - What is the place youíd love to travel to the most? Why?

Iíd have to say Queenstown in New Zealand or Vegas.

X - XYLOPHONE - Can you play any musical instruments?

Nope, not a thing.

Y - YIKES - Are you scared of anything? If so, what?

Canít say I really am. Not a fan of Rats though. They creep me out.
