Introducing Bob Hurford

No Bob Hurford Image

Nickname: The Claw, Mad Bob

Playing Style: Right Hand Bat, Right Arm Slow

Club Debut: 1995

'Mad Bob' Hurford has been with Chew for 10 years now and he doesn't seem to get any older (or more sane) Came to Chew on a free transfer from Failand and Portbury in 1995. Played at a high level in his youth at Knowle (1960's). Ex quick bowler who has turned to spin, but at 83 Bob's still a very usefull performer in the two's. Has to be one of the unluckiest players ever to play the game, the way he gets out is amazing, best ever catch, unplayable delivery etc etc. Does a great impersonation of the 14:25 from Temple Meads to Plymouth if required.
