Leading the Sunday 2nd's to promotion from the 4th Division of the North Devon League on my first attempt with a team full of very young and talented teenagers. This cricketing feat was even more special to me because the club was contemplating the future of Sunday 2nd cricket team at the time.
Having great satisfaction in defeating a very strong Victoria Park 2nd's who had scored 260 plus against my Sunday 2nd team especially after being told by certain club members that my team would never get anywhere near Victoria Park's total. However, it was thanks to some batting heroics by my brother, Simon Martin, Sam Allin, Gareth Mason, KJ (who was playing his match for Bideford CC at the time) and I may have scored a few runs myself that day as well.

Being relegated from the North Devon League 3rd Division the following year.
Walking out to bat at Witheridge CC many years ago and needing only a couple of runs to win I smashed the first ball I faced over the bowlers head and into the next field. In doing so I just turned and walked off the field very much like Ian Botham would have done I'm sure.
