Jim Barker

Captain. Frimley Green’s answer to Mike Brierley - came to the club as a spinner but for some reason used as a pinch-hitter in the early days, before becoming skip in 2011. Occasionally lets rip his mystery ball, AKA the Frimley Green Doosra, although tends to get carted off to the boundary more often than he would care to admit.
