Simon Rogers

CBCC Badge 2007

Former Cherry Burton CC member Simon Rogers has sadly died of pneumonia aged 43.

Hull Daily Mail Article

Whilst not the most technically gifted of bowlers, he was a very useful bowler – some of his wickets may have been taken with full tosses but he was quite skilled at making something happen – great when as a captain you wanted to break a batting partnership!

He attained legendary status with his request for a fielder to move to ‘Off Spin Gully’! To this day we’re still not sure just where it was supposed to be!
