Mo Zahour, Chair of the Cricket Committee, is the deserved winner of the Arthur Speakman Award for his leadership and volunteer efforts on behalf of the Club this year and since becoming Chair in 2018.

Mo has been instrumental in the progress  we have made in recent years through our Club Development Plan. He led the Crowdfunding campaign that allowed us to purchase an electronic scoreboard  and has been the main driver  of our most recent project to install a new 2 lane net facility at The Rolls.

Mo has been hugely involved with the Food Bank Collections we have arranged  in support of the Highams Park Food Hub which benefits less fortunate families in our local area.

Mo also Chairs the Team Selection Committee and manages our Indoor Adult AX1. 






Emran Raja is part of our junior coaching team. He has gained a Level 1 Foundation  Coach qualification and currently coaches and manages our Under 13 team in their indoor and outdoor seasons. He has two sons in the Junior Cricket Section.

Emran was the Lead Activator on our ECB Dynamos Cricket programme in 2021 and also supports our All Stars Cricket sessions. 

Emran still finds time to play for our Adult 4th X1 and especially enjoys the games in which he is able to play alongside his son Younis.
