Martin Bigmore

Martin Bigmore: He may only have one shot as Luton Nomads uncharitably suggested years ago but as he said on flicking another ball over the pavilion he does play it pretty well.

In many ways Bigmore is the archetypal left-handed batsman, capable of elegant drives and wristy flicks one moment and god-awful hoicks the next. The result is a mixture of soft dismissals and solid performances. He has established himself as the club’s most accomplished keeper and holds the record for career catches and stumpings. Never afraid to do his bit for community relations in the cauldron of key cup games, Bigmore played a leading role in the cup final victories of 2002 and 2003 and looked to be enjoying himself immensely in the 2003 semi-final where his nifty glove-work prompted apoplexy in the opposition ranks.

Bigmore has inspired a number of impressive campaigns in the North Herts League and was in command when the club stormed to the Division Two crown in 2004, losing just one game along the way, and rocketing to victory with ease courtesy of a commanding run rate. Despite persistent rumours of pursuing a new challenge in New Zealand Bigmore currently remains as an integral part of the club.

He has now left the club and coutry for Melbourne, Australia. We wish him well.
