Gary Law


Gary Law: Debut: 2008

Law looked a key signing at the start of the 2008 season, showing little inclination to bat or bowl but willing to keep wicket and devoting most of his afternoon to helping construct the sightscreen. However, that was the only time he played in 2008.

Fast forward a year and Law established himself as a key member of the squad. In addition to keeping wicket when required, he proved himself to be a more than useful slow bowler, holding a dozen catches and scoring important runs for the Second XI. Unlike many of his colleagues in the Seconds, Law proved capable of trying to bat for more than four balls without attempting to slog the ball out of the ground. The result was a number of lengthy innings where he demonstrated the same passion for occupying the crease as serial dot ball collector Chris Austin.

In addition to providing essential ballast with his batting, Law also undertook the crucial role of supervising the teas for the Second XI. In this area he received the coveted Matthew Freeman Seal of Approval, awarded only to those teas which are judged to be full of tasty treats. Always the first to the bar, Law is now firmly established as a fixture in the Offley line-up.
