Next up in our A to Z feature is 1XI captain, Levi. He reveals the best player he’s played against and lifts the lid on a love hate relationship within the team.
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?
Rishton - always a good crowd
B - BANTER - Who has the best banter at the club?
Phill Gilrane. Never fails to put a smile on anyone’s face.

D - DINING - What would be your last 3 course meal?
Chocolate sponge and custard
E - EVENINGS - A quiet night in with the missus or a night out with the lads? Why?
Has to be staying in. Feet up and Benidorm on Netflix.
F - FOREIGN - What is your favourite holiday destination?
G - GAME - What’s the best game of cricket you have ever played in?
The first time we won the T20 at Lowerhouse in 2014. What a night for the club. Winning it again at Tod comes a close second.

Fifa and marking books.
I - IDOL - Who is your favourite cricketing hero?

Oasis, Kasabian etc. Half the World Away by Oasis.
N - NICKNAME - What’s your nickname and what’s the best one you’ve ever heard?

O - OPTIMISM - How do you think Church will do this year? League? T20? Cup?
To challenge on all fronts and play the best cricket we can. Try and better 5th place even though it’ll be a tough ask.

Tough one. Probably Josh Dentith and Josh Scully’s relationship. One minute they're on and the next they're off. Can’t get my head around it.
T - TELEVISION - What do you like to watch on the box?
U - UNKNOWN - Tell us something that we don’t know about you.
